This post: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2160863#Post2165096 suggests the PL14619 will fit a VQ35DE, at least in an 04 350Z. Anyone with a modern VQ35HR know if the larger OD of the PL14619 will still fit? I would like to use the PL14619 if it does, rather than the PL14610 with half the surface area of filter material. I searched, but cannot find anyone mentioning whether they tried the PL14610 on their VQ35HR. Specifically, this would be for a 2012 EX35, but I'll give it a try if anyone can confirm proper fitment on any VQ35HR app. Thanks.

It also has a good ADBV, so I get no start-up rattle. The L14619 has 175 sq in of filter media in the same size can. The gasket on the PL14619 is rather larger than the 14610/12, but it works just fine on my engine. For comparison, I measured 103 sq in of media in a L14610 filter.
