    Has anyone found an oil filter for GM 5.3litre that has a little more capacity? The standard one seems so short, it could be twice as long and still not hang below the oil pan. Any thoughts?

    The PF46 is tiny, they used to have a PF59 that was a little bigger, but not much. The replaced the 59 with the 46 a few years back.

    the pf59 is still available in canada,this is the one we use all the time on the 4.8, 5.3 and the 6.0 for 99-06 trucks. the pf44(pf46 american) is the one on from the factory, but it is too small, the pf59 is only available in canada now, it was discontinued in the states.

    just have your parts store cross the pf59 to thier brand and use it, it looks like it is almost twice the size (which isn't saying a whole lot considering the the 46 is tiny but anything is better than the 46, lol my honda rincon 4 wheeler has a filter that size on it.

    thats because the pf59 was discontinued in the USA, but still available in Canada.

    Fram makes one. When you go to autozone they'll try to stick you with a smaller one. They can say (thats what the computer says) all they want. I thought the guy was joking with me when he gave me the little one.
