Look at post #33 above. I guess we can just look it up and confirm? Gonna do an oil change soon. If I remember, I'll get the 2009 variety and do a photo comparison to mine now (2012).

Has anyone done a filter relocation? I was looking at filters on RockAuto and this popped up. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...=1442679&jsn=8 Having to drop the skid plate to change the filter each time gets a bit old, but I am more worried about introducing new potential leaks, and would the engine require more oil to counteract the effects of the extended oil path?

Haven't done the relication, but if I did would get the dual filter unit...had always wanted to use one of those on an auto trans.

I never need to drop the skid, as you can grab it from the side...should remove the plate though to.let the oil drain, but it's just two screws and really only need to remove one, loosen the other enough to let it swing.

The race car I worked on had a remote oil filter, just to make it easy to change. IIRC, we had to add an extra 2 pints due to hose length, but we also ran an 8 or 10 quart oil pan. Install it correctly and it isn't going to leak.

Anyone know anything about the Pro Tech filters? RA has em on sale, I thinking of ordering a dozen or so. Gonna use it with fully synthetic extended mileage, and with Lucas synthetic additive.
