Anyone have any good information on Ford's Racing High Performance oil filter?
I am amazed at how small the oil filter for this car is! I would expect the filter to be a little longer or ideally for the engine to have two small filters.
I was told by the dealership that the stock oil filter used on the Shelby GT500 is actually a "high performance" oil filter (?).

The Motorcraft FL820 / CM-6731-FL820

Compare these three filters:
Left: Motorcraft - new
Right: Stock - old

I found it odd that the factory filter is not Motorcraft and has no markings or manufaturer information!

I installed the new Motorcraft filter after filling it with fresh oil.

Take a look at the links in post #3 of this thread - you should find some good information about these filters including photos of internal parts - Enjoy:

Thanks for the information!
Not much of a difference between the two with the exception of price, holes, and pleats:

Ford Racing CM-6731-FL820 Oil Filter:
- Number of pleats = 63
- Number of circulation holes = 8

Motorcraft FL-820S Oil Filter:
- Number of pleats = 43
- Number of circulation holes = 6

My guys have me on a FL-2016 3c3z-6731-aa this filter is about 8" tall and was stock on my 500 7/30/06

I do have to say though that the flow holes on the H.P. are bigger in the picture, Iwould ask about the one I mentioned and compare them.

Are you sure you have an FL-2016 on your 5.4l GT500? that is the filter for a 6.0 or 6.4 diesel. Did not know they were even the same base/thread dimensions.

A longer filter could be easier to change on this car and provide more filter area.....But they are MUCH more expensive than an FL-820s $4 vs $20

Well, my car is at SAI LV right now, so I cant just crawl under and look at it, Might just be a diffrent box that they put the old one in so I could have a sample done..... I'll have to dig through my invoices when I get back to Montana

Assuming that the pleats are the same length and depth adding 20 pleats would increase the filtering area by <>30%.

I've had great luck with K&Ns Gold Performance filter (HP-2010) And they are just about everywhere and not much at all.

Anyone have any experience with the Mobil 1 High Efficiency oil filter?

"The Mobil 1 High Efficiency Oil Filter is the most advanced oil filter available for consumers today, offering unsurpassed filter durability and exceptional filtration capability. When used with Mobil 1 Synthetic Engine Oil, this filter provides the ultimate in engine wear and cleanliness protection. Mobil 1 Oil Filters remove more contaminants via a substantial improvement in multiple pass filter efficiency (95% vs. 80% for conventional filters) by using a synthetic fiber media. It also offers significant improvements in filter durability, both in hydrostatic pressure testing (steadily increasing pressures) and in cyclic pressure impulse testing.

The Mobil 1 High Efficiency Oil Filter outperforms conventional filters by 2.5 to 1 in hydrostatic testing, and by 3 to 1 in cyclic pressure impulse testing. Reduces resistance to oil flow while improving filter efficiency. Easier removal of the filter at the end of its useful life (less straining with the oil filter wrench) based on use of a special gasket that requires less torque at installation. The Mobil 1 Oil Filter is available in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate a broad range of consumer automobiles and light trucks."

It would seem to me that increased pleats and increased filtering would mean reduced flow.

Some members have complained about engine ticking noises, and I have been told that reducing the oil flow will cause this.

Some of the manufacturers increase the "pleating" to increase the filtering surface and by doing so they lower the pressure drop thru the filter, which equates to a filter capable of more flow.

I have been using & selling the Mobil-1 oil filters for over 6 years....I use them on my Z06, and the GT500....

Hydrostatic flow is the key to an efficient filter, this coupled with the efficiency of the synthetic media, the decision to stock, sell, and personally use these filters was a no brainer.

Both the K&N Gold, and the Mobil-1 filters are made by Champion Labs....A very trusted manufacturer.

Based on testing posted on the old Terminator forum (Blue Oval News) I use NAPA Gold. Worked well in the 03, stood up to the pounding well and the engine had no issues when sold with 41K on it. I believe I will stick with the NAPA Gold.

Probably not the one for a 6.0 diesel. I have an '06 F-250 and it uses a drop in cartdridge not a spin on filter.

Does Mobil 1 have a HP 6 replacement?

In Marine Ramco (fuel) and System 1 are hot right now. I am not trying to go a million miles so I care more about flow...just keep the rocks out. :hysterical:

Who is the original Mfg of the HP6? If I know I can try to cross reference....

Is it strictly a Marine application filiter, or is there an automotive use?

I kept my original oil filter to compare. My first couple of changes I used the FL820 S filters. This time around I am going with the FL 820 FRPP. Since the GT500 came with an unmarked filter, who knows what it is. But in putting the 3 filters side by side and in weight comparison, the original unmarked filter is almost the same as the FL820 FRPP. The FL820 S is a lighter weight filter with different openings.

Not strictly marine. Mostly for remote mounted racing applications.

Maker is FRAM

But in putting the 3 filters side by side and in weight comparison, the original unmarked filter is almost the same as the FL820 FRPP. The FL820 S is a lighter weight filter with different openings.

The original OEM oil filter probably still has some oil in it making it seem heavier. It's difficult to get all the oil out of the filter. Regardless, I am sure the FRPP filter is heavier than the FL820S.
