I've always just bought an extra quart the first time, fill as normal, run for a few mins, shut down, wait, check oil and add...After the first time you'll know how much extra, but its not much, maybe 1/2 or so.

Thanks; my son has a class C with a V10 and I will be recommending to him that he should go to the bigger filter.

Thanks!

Usually you worry about a filter bursting, not collapsing. A good quality filter with a silicone anti-drain back and no worries..

For those of you who havent seen it, this guy tries to compare the different brands: Oil Filters Revealed - MiniMopar Resources

Prolly not too relevant for the big rigs, but you learn whats in a filter and what makes a good one good...

Absolutely, an oil change doesnt change all the oil, it changes ALMOST all of it. Ive done multiple changes on really dirty systems to flush out the quart thats hiding in the oil passages and heads. But- thats just about the oil, it has nothing to do with the filter.

But, when theyre that dirty, i use kerosene to clean them out. Fill er up with coal oil and run the oil pump with a 1/2 horsepower drill, AMAZING how much garbage comes out! Once upon a time Id fill it with kero and run the engine, but thats not for the faint of heart. darn near seized an engine that way...

Collapsing (failure of the element) is not about "big" but about "pressure" across the filter element. Any filter thats clogged might fail.

There are other things to think about, more important than larger capacity!

1. Proper size filter.
2. Proper bypass rating for engine.
3. Media type. ( synthetic or paper )
4. Micron ratings.

All of these things need to be considered. All of these things must also be considered when changing oil viscosity. Considering the oil filter cost is just a fraction of the engine cost, don't buy the cheapest. There is very little difference in cost, best to worst!

Just my opinion!
