2007 GM changed to the M22X1.5 threads. So on the 5.3L V8 we have a little bitty filter and i would like a longer filter. OEM filter is Amsoil E047 WIX 57060 Purolator PF48 K&N HP1017 Anybody know of a longer filter with the same threads and PSI Relief of 11-17lbs w/ADBV? Or is there a place we can cross reference to a larger filter maybe? I guess in the end I could use the Perma Cool oil filter relocation kit, but would like to find a larger filter.

Gary and I went through this before with their website, forgot about that little caveat. The trick is to just ignore the (inches) comment and fill in M22 x 1.5 to get the results. SO I get the following for the WIX cross you quoted originally: P550794 Lube Filters Product Attributes A - OD (Inches): 3.00 B - Thread Size (Inches): M22 x 1.5 C - Length (Inches): 3.26 Relief Valve Setting (PSI): 20 Product Type Description: LUBE SPIN ON Primary Application: GM 2007 LIGHT TRUCK Product Group: FL Packaged Dimensions Country of Origin MX (Mexico) Effective Drawing Date 2007/12/04 08:55:20 Gross Weight in Pounds 0 An alternative, much longer: P550166 Lube Filters Product Attributes A - OD (Inches): 3.67 B - Thread Size (Inches): M22 X 1.5 C - Length (Inches): 5.42 D - Gasket OD (Inches): 2.83 E - Gasket ID (Inches): 2.46 Relief Valve Setting (PSI): 17-22 Product Type Description: LUBE SPIN-ON FULL FLOW Primary Application: ONAN 122-0550 Product Group: F Packaged Dimensions Country of Origin US (United States) Gross Height in Inches 6.2 Gross Length in Inches 3.7 Gross Weight in Pounds 0.75 Pieces Per Pallet 63 Gross Width in Inches 3.8 And another: P553315 Lube Filters Product Attributes A - OD (Inches): 3.82 B - Thread Size (Inches): M22 X 1.5 C - Length (Inches): 5.51 Product Type Description: LUBE SPIN-ON FULL FLOW Primary Application: FORD 785F-6714-AA3A Product Group: F Packaged Dimensions Country of Origin IT (Italy) Gross Height in Inches 6.2 Gross Length in Inches 3.8 Gross Weight in Pounds 1.1 Pieces Per Pallet 840 Gross Width in Inches 3.9 I didn't look closely to see how well they lined up, just giving you examples that searching using that method does in fact work

Yeah, I was looking too. The problem I see with those filters is the filter on his five point tree is right up against the oil pan, very little room for a larger diameter. Unfortunately, that means I have not found a suitable filter with the correct diameter.

Thank you Overkill I appreciate it. Never thought of just ignoring their parameters :) Yes the oil pan is right up against the filter. I may have the .33 extra on the oil pan side. I may just relocate the filter and run a PH1A (Ford) type filter. Tons of them out there. Thank you again though for your time and that is helpful.
