oil filter upgrade
« on: February 13, 2007, 08:38:00 AM »

Just wanted to share some info on an oil filter upgrade for our capri's. The filter fits mazda 626,929,MPV etc.. with v6 engines. The part number for these are Carquest # 85356 or Fram # PH7317. This filter has the exact same specifications as ours except that it is 1" longer.This means more cleaning power for our hi-revving engines. My engine still held only 4 qts of oil after installing the new filter. Hope this helpful. see ya!  :cool:
