Another larger oil filter?

Is there a larger oil filter I can use on a 2000 Olds Bravada? And if so do you know what vehicle it originally fits? I only use NAPA gold filters and would like to just walk in and tell them I need a filter for (Make and model) of car and call it a day without having to cross reference anything. I have seen bigger bottles of aspirin then the oil filters they put on these trucks!

I assume it is the 4.3 Vortec engine. I think that is the only option for a 2000 Bravada. The standard filter would be a Delco PF-52. That is not that small of a filter for 4.3 V6. It is a small diameter and somewhat long filter. Due to the small diameter it may be hard to find a larger filter.

It is a 4.3 liter...that is the only engine available in a second gen s10 series. It is also a very small filter considering my suburbans 350 filter is twice as big. A 4.3 liter is essentially a 350 minus two cylinders. Minus two cylinders does not justify making a filter that is twice as small in my opinion. Looking for a longer filter as there is lots of room.

Can you replace the remote filter mount with one that has a more common thread size like 3/4-16? I think yours is 1.5mm x 18. That and the specification for a filter without an internal bypass doesn't give a lot of choices. FWIW, I had a 2000 Blazer 4 x 4 with the 4.3 Vortec, and just used standard size WIX (or the NAPA Gold clone WIX) and had plenty of oil pressure.
