Good day, I got this Fram Tractor Vintage Filter that I intend to install on my Karmann Ghia. Is it okay to install it or it i too big for its application. It is only the volume of oil that it can hold that is different; however, everything is just the same. It can even be used as an additional oil capacity for the engine. Something like a dry sump type used by Porsche.

This is the picture

Thanks in advance,

The only downside I can think of is more oil = more time to heat up oil.

Cheers,

Paul

Yeah I can see that. But what is your consideration of the possibility of loss oil pressure?

I have the shorter version of this filter, the one used by Denzel. If I can ever finish my engine, I'll definitely collect oil pressure data. My fear is that at some RPM level, some part of the filter system will a choke point, and oil pressure will take a dive.

Cheers,

Paul

Yes me too. I have the shorter version too. Installed on my '67 splitty bus, '65 vintage speed theme and '72 baywindow camper. But this one the longer version i got the other day, I would like to install it on my Karmann Ghia. My motive is that, aside from its filtering capability, I also intend it to be as a dry sump type that houses about 2 liters of oil, which adds to the 2 1/2 oil capacity of the stock engine. The oil sump if installed underneath my Karmann's engine is so scary. Ii may hit some bumps. I don't want to damage the engine.

Thanks,

Dong
