Im using this filter now, it seems like a perfect size and is way bigger than the bosch I replaced. The filter does not come down lower than the oil pan so it is safe. The width clears my wrapped gruppes headers. The only drawback is the plate is concaved a little, so it doesnt thread on as much as a stock filter, If anyone has used an amsoil sdf20 the threading characteristics are similar to that.
I will be doing some particle counts along with uoas to compare the baldwin to the other filters ive used.
