I'm still grieving that I can't fit the GIGANTO 51714 on my F250 or my wife's Explorer.
To me, it's not the increased oil capacity that is so desireable about big filters, it is the ability to hold the same amount of crud while flowing more... this is what I like.
But, having said that, I wonder now how much longer it takes for my oil to warm up when using a filter that holds a half quart more oil...
One thing I've noticed about my oil pressure
is that ever since I entered my first rinse stage with ARX and have been using a mix of Castrol GTX 20W-50 and Proline 10W-30 (compared to Rotella "Synthetic" 5W-40 while in the first cleaning stage of ARX), it reaches normal operating pressure
much more quickly than it did with the Rotella.
To me, this indicates that this rinse oil mixture reaches normal operating temperature
faster, which causes it to reach normal operating pressure
What I'm getting at is that in this experience I'm seeing that certain oils
get to operating temperature more quickly than others, and perhaps this may be of a more dominant influence than the extra oil capacity.
It seems there is something new to observe each day, now that I'm seeing through more tribologically-oriented eyes.
