Has anyone used the fl400s filter? wit my Robbie Mac fuel pump bolted on the fl1a filter is pratically touching pump housing (you may be able to slide playing card between them).
The fl400s will fit and gives plenty of room, but it looks like you lose 1/2 qt capacity in filter.
I hate to start grinding on pump housing, but I really would hate to rub hole in filter and lose engine or have oil hit header and burn car to the ground.

Pros or Cons on small filter or suggestions appreciated.

Install a remote filter.  Place it in a better location for easier access and less mess. :grin:

Can you get away with a 90 degree filter adapter and just turn the filter down and out of the way ?

It would be filter oil capacity I would say... now I have not cut it open and looked inside one.. but we trust it to filter oil for 4.6 3v with a single turbo remote mounted...( last recent one we did..) and it has a more expensive rotating assembly then you have.. do you have a 7qt pan yet?

And just something else to keep in mind.. though I fully and completely realize I'm no engineer/ engine builder by any means.. But all the LSX based stuff is still running a filter even smaller than the FL400S.. just something to think about..

Filter size would dictate how often you should change it.

It would also change the flow rate of the filter. The more surface area, the smaller possible micron filtering and keep flow rate up. Smaller filter can't flow the same and filter the same too or if it does, it would have to be changed more often.

Thats my take on it and that isn't saying that the FL-1A flows or filters any better! It might not be superior right off the bat.

I say run a remote and use a Baldwin B-253, its about the best filter you can get. I know me and a few others looked into it on YellowBullet and specs wise, flow wise, surface area wise it was better then the rest. Bladwin also gives out all its rating info and is fast at it.

Enjoy the reading, alot of info in there. He spent alot of money on filters to get alot of the info. Look at the info posted by me, and by him and look what he settled on.

The Baldwin B253 and the JOMAR are pretty much the same filter except there is NO by-pass in the JOMAR.

I use the JOMAR a lot and there is NO jusnk in the bearings at all on freshen-up inspections.

I would look into the 90 degree adapter from FRPP.
