Larger oil filter info.

Bosch 3402.


It has a bit more capacity, and more filter surface. Never a bad thing, if you ask me. Goes right on.



It looks to be roughly 20% or so larger.

I just fit the same filter (I think it was a Valvoline brand or something...) into a c900 today, its a tight fit, but it goes in there!

The Bosch 3402 part number is kinda odd from the typical name for this size. Most companies have this part listed with a "16" part number.

EX: Fram uses PH-16, Pennzoil is something like PZ-16, you get the idea

This is a Chrysler filer, it is used on a WIDE variety of Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth cars.

^ nice!

Right now I have no idea if these fit any of the V6 saabs, but I have used them on c900, 9000 4cyl, 9-5 4cyl, and ng900/9-3 4cyl. I don't know what the ecotech takes...and have no personal experience changing oil on them, so I can't say what the options are for those.

Thanks JK. Rudedog listed other filters and I thought perhaps one was a better option, unless they were in fact the same filter size but different brands and part numbers.

Oh, no they are all different part numbers (for different brands) of the same size/style/application of the large filter. They should all be externally the same, or close enough that fitment will not be an issue between the brands.

so all those are the same size filter, about 20% larger than the stock size?

What about Amsoil? I would be interested in what they have for a filter...

Here is what I found for the Jeep 4.0 listing:
https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/detail.aspx?ID=2261
PN: 51085-EA

This is the return I got if you want my source:

I'm sure nearly every filter mfg makes a filter of this size/spec.

Wouldn't a larger filter reduce oil pressure? You can get a Purolator two pack at amazon for a ridiculous price of $10.58 plus shipping unless you get it to 25 then it is free.

No. I've been doing it for years with no adverse affect. Anecdotal I admit, but what the Hell.

Well I don't think that it would be something that would be noticeable but it could cause problems over multiple oil changes. Strictly speaking Physics when you increase the size of something in a closed system you reduce the pressure in that system. I just am not sure that the oil filter is far enough along the line to be part of the pressurized system.

No. The volume you are speaking of is very slight when you talk about the amount of oil. The amount of extra filtering might be 10%-20%, but the amount of oil to make up that space and increase the pressure is minimal.

The larger filter will not reduce oil pressure. The filter is not what build pressure in the system, so I certainly would not worry about that.

I posted this over at SC.

I am currently using the Napa 1515 which added 0.5 liters of oil to the system, fits very well.

I just received today my Ea026 Amsoil filter, this filter is off a F150 truck and holds almost 2 liters of oil in it. It is the same filter as the Napa 1773, although the Nominal micron reading for the 1773 is 30 which is to high for our saabs, otherwise it meets all the same specs as the OEM filter.
pics of the 3 filters.

http://picasaweb.google.com/scottyma...24323706263378

In order to fit the Amsoil Ea026 filter, you need to have the GS dp, as the stock setup has a hanger that is in the way. Also, the larger amsoil filter is the only oil filter that I can find that filters well enough for our cars (actually it filters better than anything out there, 98% at 15 microns, and will filter down to 4 microns).

Edit: The oil pump is what provides the oil pressure, you could theoretically have 1000 liters, and have roughly the same oil pressure, as the same amount of oil is going through the system. You are not increasing the size of the oil pathways in the engine. yes its a bigger oil filter, but it has the same inlet and outlet size holes as the stock filter, thus no change in oil pressure.
