Hello,

My name is Peter and I just purchase a 1986 Monte Carlo SS tribute, 5,400 miles, 383 stroker, 700r4 od trans. Looking forward to learning a lot about these cars, I've wanted one since I was a kid in the 80's.

thanks,

Pete

Thank you!

probably not the right forum but can anyone tell me what oil filter options I have for the 383? Skip white performance told me to use a quality filter that's medium length? The one that came with the car is a Mobil m1-302 but is that considered medium length?

thanks,

pete

In the 70's trucks and cars used different filters for the same V8 engines . A 350 in a car had a short filter and trucks used 2 or more different sizes. The long filter IMO is preferred because has more media and it holds about 1/4 to 1/2 quarts more oil , The filter your probably looking for can be found looking up a van or truck with a 350 . Without climbing under my car and looking to confirm but I believe the filter I have is a Wix 51061 I hope this gives you a starting point.
