after the Spoon head showed that he used that clamp around the oil filter on a Best Motoring video years back, a lot of people had been asking whether it's better to run the smaller volume oil filters with less filter expansion during sustained high rpm runs and the heat generated.
the question really is whether you want a large oil filter to act as a sump reserve for oil or a small filter and have most of thevolume that would go into the filter during circulation back into the system.
I haven't really sorted out whether a small volume filter or large volume filter (what the difference in oil volume sumped in the filter itself) makes a difference one way or the other.
Even the HAMP filters come in 2 sizes for the Gen 3's anyway. I haven't investigated the Gen 4's or Gen 2's filters for differences in sizing for HAMP.
