Fram Racing's HP1 filter is larger for more oil capacity. It also has larger flow holes for more oil flow. This will cause your engine to run quieter and smoother.allhemi said:So whats the difference in a reguler filter and a racing filter?
allhemi said:If I'm reading this right is this the part # for the Purolator filter L30001?
i increased my filter capacity another way:
i have a 94 RAM 1500 360, AT 4x4.
i buy Napa Gold part # 1452.
its almost twice as long as the standard replacement filter, holds almost 3/4
of a quart of oil.
for an application, ask for a filter for a 1995 Ram 3500 V-10.
Heavy-duty if they ask.
i tried different brands, and can't find anyone else that offers a filter that
is bigger than the v-8's for the V-10's.
while i'm letting out tricks, i use NGK ZFR5F11 spark plugs. for application,
1995 dodge Viper V-10. they are a little longer than the stocks (about 1/16th
of an inch). noticed smoother idle immediately! worth the extra $$. thats all
the tricks for today! hope this helps you guys out! matt
And if I read this right is the oil filter for the 1995 Ram 3500 V-10 the same as the one we use just bigger?
o2man98 said:My manuals do show the same filter for the Hemi and the V10 which is about 3.9 inches. By crossing over I can find another that is about 5.25 inches. So they do share threads and diameter (both can and gasket).
The one the my manual calls for in the V10 and HEMI is SDF42, now repalced by EaO42.allhemi said:So is the filter for the V-10 bigger? Or is it the same size as the hemi....And if you cross the numbers to get a bigger filter what is that filter for?

Thread = 3/4x16
OD = 3.720
Height = 3.966
ID Gasket = 2.460
OD Gasket = 2.810
By-Pass = 7-9PSID
ABDV = Yes
Larger SDF15 now replaced by EaO15.
Everything the same except height which is 5.276. Most vehicles that specifically state this larger filter are Most Fords and the Toyota Landcruiser. This filter also crosses to the WIX 51515 which you can see the application list here. http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/PartApplications.asp?Part=51515
The 51515 is also available in the Racing Version which is 51515R. This is a direct competitor for the FRAM HP1. See here:http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/PartDetail.asp?Part=51515R
Hope I answered your questions. And yes I can supply WIX products.
