Nice, Greg! This is now stick-ified!
The last time I changed the oil in my wifes 02 TL, the parts guy gave me an even smaller filter than the one I had been using previously. He assured me it was the right one, and that there had been a change to the current filter. The o-ring barely fits up to base of the filter housing! I hope it is doing it's job, I usually go 5 to 7k between changes on that car with Mobile 1.Originally posted by pisadong@Aug 16 2004, 11:35 PM
I'm a little leary of the FL-1A fitting Greg. My Merkur XR4Ti uses that filter and it is HUGE! That part is good, but it'll be one hell of a squeeze to get it past the front exhaust manifold/pre-cat. A little more capacity is certainly a good thing, but I do believe that the FL-820S is adaquately sized, unlike some of the stock filters on Honda motors... those filters are tiny!
