Default Re: Do I need to worry about oil pressure when using oversize oil filter?

It's fine to use a larger filter. The noise is because the pump has to fill the filter before getting oil to the engine. Filling the filter before putting it on will help. Over the duration that filter is on, it will be much better for your engine than a smaller one as it filters out much smaller particles, provides better pressure, increases sump capacity, etc.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
