Is there a shorter filter available for the small block than the Morosso 22300 ? I am not sure I'm going to be able to use the same filter after the Sanderson install. I only have about 1/2" clearance between the bottom of the filter and the top of the headers. How much room do I need to get the filter off? Is the 1/2" enough? Someone mentioned a P454..anything about this?....Joe

Elvis...I don't think that's an issue. The oil has already been through some pretty hot places like the heads and combustion chamber! You can hold your hand 1/2" above the headers at that place easily but you can't touch the heads. I just don't know yet if I can get my filter off and on...Joe

Joe,
I use a Delco PF 454. It's pretty short but you'd have to check. Also it's blue, which would look good on your bike. At your local Chev dealer.

Joe,
I use a 454, and that's all I have used since they discontinued the PF25. I use the 454 in my Vette, and also the Boss. No problems here! I get mine at Auto Zone. It is about 1-1.5 inches shorter than the longer filters, but I feel as if the oil capacity is irrelevant, no more than that much difference.

I use the bosch filter. I believe the number is 2304.... I`ll have to check. But it is the only short filter they make for the small block and it is plenty short enough. Besides... It is black. Auto zone carries them.

Joe,
I need to pick a couple up anyway in a few days..as soon as I do, I will measure and let you know! (I would go out and measure the one on the Boss, but I have one of the chrome filter covers over it, and it is a long filter cover, so I can't tell the length of the filter itself).

I didn't think I'd be able to get my filter off after installing the Sanderson headers because my heads are taller than stock (AFR heads) but was able to do so. I don't think I had more than 2mm to spare. the taller heads have produced a few difficulties but none insurmountable. thanks for all your help....Joe
