    I think bypass would be a legitimate factor, under load. As the media becomes more restrictive more oil is going to have to bypass media to meet flow demands. My understanding is a fresh filter is nearing it's max delivery before using bypass under full oil demand.

    I still see no reason not to run the bigger filter. The WIX brand costs the same for the PF48 or PF63 equivalents. Plus I'll actually be able to change it by hand.

    GM powertrain warranty was good to me; both wheel bearings, valve cover, axle seal, u-joint, exhaust manifold bolts (heads fell off). All that with no service records (I'm the second owner).

    I'm probably going to try this at my next oil change. I'll go for the Wix version at Napa.

    Re: Larger PF48 - PF63, Finally.

    At extended WOT I would imagine the oil pukes through the bypass but I am willing to be no matter how big a filter it would anyhow, lol. Mind you don't see any reason a larger filter would be detrimental at all either. That said I just don't think it's absolutely required by any stretch either. If I find an Amsoil version of it I might go that route too honestly. This is my first go of Amsoil in a personal vehicle so we shall see how it does according to the lab.
    JUST FOR CLARIFICATION

    I hate GMT900 trucks period.

    BITOG had a cross ref IIRC for an amsoil version of the PF63.

    I'm just looking forward to not having to clean off a filter wrench (will actually be able to get my hand on the longer filter) after the ADBV pukes out that last 1/2qt.

    I would like a longer filter just to ease the install/removal procedures.

    Since I despise that BITOG site I just looked it up. Amsoil's version of the PF63 is indeed available under the number EAO18not that I need one, lol. I keep forgetting the title and the fact the filters changed in 2007..... Duh. The longer version for my truck is same as the PF61, because I have an 05, not that it matters here.

    Longer PF46 equivalents have been around for a while.

    Finally needed an oil change. WIX 57045 (PF63 equivalent) went on, looks like it actually belongs there compared to the stubby little PF48.

    O yes the 6.0 is the $hit. In the future the OBS is getting an ls swap and Im not even bothering with a 5.3 going straight to 6.0. This motor feels alot more powerful.

    Re: Larger PF48 - PF63, Finally.

    Sorry to ressurect an old thread, but did anyone ever try actually putting the PF63 instead of the PF48?

    If you are going to dig it, you should try at least reading it.

    I'm at about 4500mi on the WIX 57045 (PF63 equivalent). I have no reason not to spin on another once I hit my OIC... sometime between 5500 and 7500mi.

    Why? I think you missed the point.

    The PF63 is the same construction/quality of the PF48, which is not the point of the thread.

    The point was the significant size difference between the PF63 and PF48, which the WIX equivalent, the 57045, is relevant.
