I've looked and pondered about that. with me changing oil once a month, if I switched to the walmart synth, and changed once every 2 months I would come out ahead. Just overly paranoid about switching to synth with my miles and good fortunes.

You bet.....it'* a PF-52 in AC Delco brand, it'* a little longer than the PF-47 stocker
holds a little less than 1/2qt. more oil.

if you want to use a different brand filter just cross it with the 52.

nice choice
