As I look through post after post trying to find some other information, I see, time and time again, that people are using the Fram PH30 (or, more often, the equivalent filter from another maker). Although that's fine, why not go with the bigger pickup truck version (PH13 or equivalent)? That's a rhetorical question. The PH13, etc is the filter called for for use in pickups with a small block chev. Same filter except its a bit longer...thus, more oil capacity (albeit not a whole lot more). There's plenty of room for the longer filter, so only makes sense to go that route. Just throwing this out there for ya'll (I prefer the Wix version which is part number 51061).

I've been wondering if anyone has a cross referenced filter for the 6.0 Ilmor engine? (2012) I'm sure it would be 1/2 the price of the MC factory filter

Ilmor 5.7, 6.0, 6.2 all the same, based on my research wix 57060, mobil1 m1-113, but I could be wrong. you can cross reference your favorite brand.

Best to see what came on the engine from the get-go and cross reference that.
