I want to put i better I.E. lower micron oil filter on my truck (02 7.3)
i have tried to get the elf 7405 on it and it simple will not get a straight enuff shot to spin on the main filter boss i need to find out what filters i can use that will have better filtration i run about 5k between oil changes and do a drain and fill w old filter run it 15 minutes then refill with new filter to get it nice and flushed out and get the top end oil cleaned out as well.
i just ordered a NUC motorsports bypass filter kit for the truck today


so what is the best filter that fits the stock filter mount

Odd, my ELF7405 fits on my 02 just fine. When full of oil it is a bit of a bear to move around when full of oil but gets on there.

Honestly for the money it is tough to beat the FL1995....18 microns at 98%...
Power Stroke Diesel - Power and Pride


The LF9027 is a ventuir combo filter that has a 25-30 micron media on top with a 5 micron bypass disc stack on the bottom.
Fleetguard LF-9027???? - Bob Is The Oil Guy

The Cat 1R0716 is a standard efficiency filter IIRC and is rated around 25-30 microns...and the Baldwin B7039 is 23 microns absolute.

Got me on the luber-finer...

Not gonna comment on the BEST filter.... this is what I have run in the past and now use the one on the left it's a Venturi (I think) with stack plate by pass built in. This is an old pix as I run Mobile 1 full synthetic and a Luber-Finer Zguard by pass in addition to the LF 9691

Do a search on Bob the Oil Guy there is lots good stuff there.

ok well i ordered a few 9691 filters and grabbed a 2286xl to get my service done today that was a bit past due so at least i can start with great filters soon as soon as i get my bypass kit in im gonna drain the entire system flush it out and put the 9691 on the bypas setup and fill her up with some shaeffers and prolong and forget about the changing the oil for a while lol

Personally, I would forget about the prolong and just run the schaeffers.
