No such problem has ever been found. One of those rumors that won’t die.Is it the oil coming out of the port at high pressure that is crushing the plastic lined filters? or are they being sucked closed, from lack of flow .?
If it is the oil pressure blasting the side of the filter , this is an easy fix, to be able to use the plastic lined filter without fear of failure.
Look at a Nascar modified air filter, and you'll see what I'm getting at.
If it is being sucked closed from pump sucking it closed from lack of flow through it, It can't be that hard to drill holes/slots,etc in a thin metal sleave and put inside the filter keeping the filter from collapsing.
Cuz, Frankly if you are having an issue getting a filter when the car is a new vehicle it isn't going to get better as they age out.
I don't think anyone is ranting or raving. There will always be concerns regarding a part that was never really designed for this engine and was only used as a sort of stop gap measure when Ford switched from the screw on filters. Especially when Ford saw fit to replace it with another completely different part later on. Metal reinforcement aside, the filter medium itself is obviously different. What it means from an efficacy standpoint I do not know, but the most obvious change for me when I switched from the original 2062 that came with the car to the 2087 at the first oil change was the increased oil pressure. What that means, again I do not know, but I will trust Ford on this one since they went through the trouble of designing and producing a unique oil filter for the 5.2 in both the Voodoo and Predator applications.everyone rants and raves about collapsed filters, but I think others will back me up here…the only confirmed cases (2 I think) are from FatHouse on some high HP engines, on a dyno, at sustained high rpm’s. Someone prove me wrong. Even if Ford found a couple that drove the upgrade, you’re still talking low numbers.
The odds of a 2062 collapsing under any mortal use, or a problem from an aftermarket filter (that would cause warranty issues) is beyond soooo remote, the odds probably can’t even be computed.
