You usually hear people on here asking what a larger filter could be for their application, b/c they want the benefit of more oil capacity and filtering media. I'm wondering if there are any benefits to running a smaller filter on a vehicle - the FL-820S/EG2-size filter for my 2003 Tribute Duratec V-6 appears to have a smaller companion for later Duratecs - the FL-500/QS173 filter. I'm just thinking that a smaller filter might be as good or better, as it may filter faster, b/c there is less filter area for the oil to go through, all other things being equal. Am I on the right track? Any benefits to a smaller filter on an engine?
