Thanks for the question, The surface of our prefilter is larger than the OEM screen in the pickup. You can block up to 80% of the screen before flow is affected.

We have made a couple attempts at making higher volume oil pans for the FA platform. There is very little room for the pan so expanding the volume didn't result in any significant increase. Certainly...

To the best of our knowledge, every one of those was accounted for.

Shouldn't be he case if the oil filter's drain back valve is doing its job.

Easy enough to know, check cold and check after a startup.

Looks like a 10-12psi drop at temp. Not exactly a little, and it likely scales up down with RPM.

Observational note on the testing. Different gauges and gauge types were used.

This is not a bad report. 5 Parts per Million of copper is still nothing to get excited about. What brand oil?

1. Correct.

2. loosen slightly at the flanges on both the head and 2-bolt side.

We tee in a drain valve, or if access is easy, just pull the lower line. OEM coolers tend to be more user friendly with a drain and decent access. Wish more aftermarket coolers did the same.
