Now that my 2022 Mustang GT with a Coyote is broken in, I’m starting to do some auto crossing and having more fun with the car opening it up. Is there any advantage to using a larger style filter than the OEM FL500S size assuming I keep my oil changes frequent? I swapped the factory-only FoMoCo filter for a Fram XG10575 which is cross referenced with the FL-500S but wondering if the engine will be better suited for a filter that emphasizes oil flow for race use since this Coyote hits 7500 RPM and has a 10 quart capacity pan. So the oil pump is defintiely churning a good amount of volume and want to make sure my filter isn’t gonna be a choke point for restriction at full throttle. I was thinking of getting the XG2 (larger style that fits Coyote) when I bought the XG10575 but the 10575 actually had the same amount of holes but they were noticeably larger even though the overall can was smaller. I also bought some Ford Racing FL820 that recently had a change to a 6-hole base plate instead of the original 8 hole, but they still weigh the same as the original style.
