oil filter size for a 6.4 Hemi?

I have a 6.4 hemi in my 2014 2500. Has anyone experimented in running a larger oil filter in their truck? I know which filter goes on it, I'm just wondering if anyone went to a larger diameter filter? Obviously gasket size and thread size play a major part...a Mopar MO-899 PN#04884899AB spins on and gasket size matches perfectly. it is a larger diameter filter.


The current size filter is no larger than my Omni GLH Turbo 2.2 turbo filter in size.

Back in the day if you could use a larger filter on old Mopar V/8s you went from a Fram PH43 to a PH8. Same filter threads , just larger filter area.....

Any insight or info out there?

Welcome to the forum! Just wondering what the advantage would be by using a larger oil filter on a 2014? I could understand maybe using one on an older truck with high mileage to collect the metal fragments of a wearing engine, but you shouldn't need one on yours.

Good to have you here.

I couldn't believe the size of the filter on the 4th Gen Trucks.
As mentioned, wasn't much larger than the one on the G37.

Did some checking and that part number changed slightly to #4884899AC. Mopar says that oil filter will not work on my 2016 model year. Did you check to see if it fits yours? https://www.socalmopardirect.com/

If it uses the same as the 5.7 - which I don't know...then try the K&N HP 3001. I also have two external magnets attached to the filter case - overkill for sure!!!
It is high quality, has a screw-off nut on the bottom and is much larger than the tiny stock filters. You will need to add 1/2 qt. extra oil to get to the full mark.

They switched to the Ford thread pitch in 13 I believe. Use to be p0253 (parts master #) and they went to p0820 (parts master #)

I like your magnet idea!! Do you think a larger oil filter is needed on a newer truck if you change your oil regularly?

-------------------------------
I have routinely run the largest filter (sometimes twin filters) possible on every make of engine I've owned for over 50 years...but to specifically answer your question it is probably not needed at all...just like the magnets I use and changing the oil more frequently than required is overkill most likely...I just see it as extremely cheap insurance and it gives me the opportunity to inspect things more frequently.

If you have the ability to protect more via a larger filter for typically the same price , why not run the larger filter. The AB to AC level part number change is Chryslers way of identifying a change that was done on that particular filter. You will prob never see the difference.

Yes the filter I mentioned above does fit in evry aspect ie; thread, gasket size and room clearance.
