I really don't see an advantage to doing this. GM designed your car for one type of oil filter...I'd stick with that.

The only difference will be something like an extra 200 mL (if that) of oil capacity. It'* not like that is going to make any difference whatsoever.

there is a greater filtering area so you get more flow and a few more PSI. I suppose it would let you run with dirty oil for a little longer, other than that I dont see any benefits.

The bigger filter gets you more filter area... duh... That'* always good. I've used it since I got the 93. Depending on the oil filter adapter the you have installed it may or may not have clearance issues.

Wait, I swear I've said this exact thing before. Someone search it up, Because last time I showed pictures too.

Not more PSI......more flow, yes, but a clogged filter or smaller filter will created higher pressure, not the other way around. High pressure is an indicator of lack of flow. Think of them as opposite relationships.

Fits fine on my 93 SLE..... Build date june 93

Yeah if the filter got hit by something, i'd have major frame damage issues. http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/371721/2
