I have a 90 talon TSI and the oil filter that was on it was way smaller than the one I put on it. That it calls for at AutoZone. so I'm not sure if anyone knows what oil filter I might need? STP Number would be good?
 
I could be wrong but the 2g filter and 1g will both fit. But the 2g is a smaller filter. I've always gone OEM or k&N I don't trust the cheap stuff after reading the thread on oil filter comparisons.
 
you could always run an evo filter as there sightly wider and shorter, Ive got the magnus filter and its some what shorter then the oem size.
 
You could try the HKS evo filter not cheep but the best i have used.

HKS/Greddy all the same and not so good paper filter. the royal purple has a thicker can and cloth filter, for what its worth the magnus is reuseable and after 8 changes will pay for its self!

I see you have never used on then as no paper in one.
 
OEM # for cross reference: MZ690116 (OEM ones are great for filtration, but have a small O Ring)
WIX: 51381
Napa Gold: 1381 (made by Wix)
K&N: HP-1005]

always use the 1g oil filter
they hold more oil and filter more oil

also only use Mitsubishi oem filters
the pepboys cheap filters are terrible for are cars..
also if you are not running a cat
I highly recommend brad penn

Ive not no, but my buddie with his Evo did and after opening it did not like what he found. After that he went royal ourple like me but I now gone to magnus
 
Purolator Pure One or Wix or OEM. The 1g oil filter is larger and in fact is the same as the 300gt vr4 oil filter. The 2g dsm have a smaller oil fiter. Either way they both fit, but i recommend the bigger one. Part numbers referenced above.
STP,Mobil 1 , k&n all made by Champion labs...Decent filters
Fram, microgard,pennzoil..all made same factory...Garbage ! Look em up if you dont believe me.
 
thanks guys it makes sense that they ###### put a 2g filter on it
 
Ph4612 less then 3 bucks at any autoparts store.
No Fram :barf:
Please do yourself a favor and spend the extra 2 or 3 bucks for a better filter guys. There is a thread on here of filters cut open, and the tragic disappointment of fram is never ending :mad:

Completely agree!!! :thumb:
 
Anybody ever try using one of these with a 1g oil filter housing w/ an external oil cooler, ME033810 or ME215002? These are used on the FUSO and are a bit bigger. I saw a video saying pretty much, "if it fits use it".
 
Heres is all the dsm/4g63 filters I dissected after use...
