    Default Oil Filter?

    Anyone know what type of oil filter I need for a 2002 2L Zetec? I have found several different ones and not sure what the difference is.

    Thanks

    I use a WIX XP (51393XP). It claims to be designed for harsh driving, extended driving, heavy loads, extreme driving (racing). Somewhat larger than standard, and not esp cheap, but hopefully up to the task of track days. I am sure there are lots of alternatives.

    My Caterham has a 2004 Zetec SVT engine. I use a Wix 51374 filter because that's the one that was on it when I got the car and because I've found that other filters, being slightly taller, simply don't fit in the space available.

    Since I was looking at filters this weekend for my car, I will hop on this thread and ask about the filter for a 2009 Caterham with a 2005 2.0L Duratec from a Focus. My car has a tiny NAPA 1335 (Wix 51335). I see this was the filter for the Europa! The Wix filter noted above is also the standard fitment for the Duratec. Is the mount for the Caterham the same as the Focus? There is a sandwich plate between the filter and the block with the lines to the oil cooler, is this Caterham specific or standard Ford? It appears like I can fit the larger Six filter into the car and I was thinking of ordering the filter noted by Kitcat

    I'm using (lower profile, non-Stock with equivalent function). Oil filter NAPA #1056. in my stock 2.0L duratec. The armchair view is a lower profile filter than the OEM one which is 30% longer(closer to the ground).

    I use a K&N (HP 1002 is the part number) because it has a nut like thing welded on the bottom that makes it easier to change.
