ummm, I have a two bolt t-stat housing, and my PCV valve is in the intake manifold...
They have changed things in the past 15 years...

Why do I get the idea that this is slowly turning into a fight thread?

BTW guys the website that lists that filter is zzperformance.com

I would say they know what they are doing over there. So I will trust that the 4.3L is better.

For those that wanted to know here'* the run down on the part numbers and prices.
AC Delco - 4.3L - PF52 / 3.8L - PF47 - same cost $3.88 at Advanced Auto
Mobil 1 - 4.3L - M1-201 / 3.8L - M1-101 - same cost $10.99 at Autozone
Pure-One - 4.3L - PL24011 / 3.8L - PL10111 - same cost $5.88 at Advanced Auto
Purolator - 4.3L - L24011 / 3.8L - L10111 - same cost $2.98 at Advanced Auto
K&N - 4.3L - HP-2001 / 3.8L - HP-1001 - same cost $11.88 at Advanced Auto
Napa Gold - 4.3L - FIL 1036 cost $5.89 / 3.8L - FIL 1040 cost $5.99 at NAPA
Napa Silver - 4.3L - SFI 21036 cost $2.89 / 3.8L - SFI 21040 cost $2.59 at NAPA
Napa Nascar Select - 4.3L - NFI 91036 / 3.8L - NFI 91040 - same cost $3.29 at NAPA

My choice on oil filters would be either Mobil 1 or K&N if you have money burning a hole in your pocket, then Pure-One or Napa Gold, then AC Delco, Purolator, Napa Silver, or Napa Nascar Select. Now I know that there are Fram filters also, but I did not mention them because I think they are garbage.

Yes, getting the old PCV valve was not easy, and it was kinda falling apart from the beginning, so that didn't help. The tstat housing had been leaking since I replaced the tstat several weeks ago, but now that is fixed, and so is the PCV valve. No real damage, just a PITA for me for the time being of the "fix"

No, I don't think this is a fight thread, good thing you didn't say mature adults.. because I wouldn't fall under that catagory .

If ZZperformance recommends it, there is no way I won't be doing it. I wonder if mobil 1 filters work best with mobil 1 oil. That would be funny if they said that on their oil and filters!

wondering about what brand filter to buy? Maybe this will help!

Gives Fram a VERY bad review, and with good reason.
