that is the longer version of a PH8A or PH43 size filter. I run it on my trucks. It fits on mini vans, that's it though unless you have a custom rad setup in a car. Holds about a quart more than the stock filter to keep oil temps a bit lower though.

single remote mount on side of ft motor mount (hint ) - could be mounted vertically and no more oil spill on hoses & wireing or dribbles down front of motor and pan when removed

if you made a bracket you might get a double filter kit in

* the only filter mount that actually filters oil twice comes from hamburger's -as far as I have found but it's $140-60

the $40-50 ones dont filter twice

a big single remote mounted with a oil cooler adapter is about all a 2.2 needs though short of adding an accumulator.

ya , I was thinkin 2 of the stock size back when I was finding spots it would fit

could go under battery tray to , but I wasn't so much into the long hoses to do it - seemed like I'd be finding extra work for oil pump to do

IMO a *quality* filter in the PH8A size is MORE THAN big enough for any 2.2/2.5 !

I use the PH43 size usually ...
