    The owners manual states to use only part # FL-2062 but when I go to the Ford dealership they are showing a different part number. Can anyone here state with authority what the part number is?

    2019 manual calls for FL2087.

    I ordered a 2062 also so I wouldn't be stuck while doing the first oil change... if it ever shows up :)

    Considering the astronomical odds that the guy at the dealer doesn't know what he's talking about...if the owners manual says 2062, then it's 2062. The 2062 is the cartridge style. Ford was pretty good about putting the correct owners manual in the car when they swapped filter style in early '17 sometime. Easy enough to fix OP...how about go look at your oil filter. If it's a black cartridge style, then it's the 2062. If it's a spin on, then it's the other one.

    That's odd the '19 calls out a completely different number? A real quick google search did not uncover any pics of it. Wonder what changed?

    normally, i'd agree, but the 2019 manual # is cartridge as well... since the engine didn't change, I'm wondering if ford is pushing a diff filter to all the 5.2's now for some reason...

    Here's the answer to my question. The 2017 model year began with the old style oil filter in the fall of 2016. After numerous problems with the torque being not properly adjusted, after the winter break they came back in calendar year 2017 with a cartridge style insert for the oil filter. That was the problem in finding the correct part number. New part number is # FL-2062, not what was recommended in the 2017 owners manual.

    I think you may have accidentally contradicted yourself, and looked like you answered a question that didn't need an answer (you already had the answer) -- and this statement is a little misleading/incorrect. They updated the owners manual when they swapped filter style mid-production '17 so that the correct filter is referenced. You even stated yourself that the '17 manual called for a 2062. I know my '17 manual calls for a 2062, which is the correct, cartridge style filter. It sounds like your manual called for the correct filter, which was the correct one, but you let the guy at the dealer lead you astray...which confirms my very first statement from above, LOL.

    It's not like there isn't a proliferation of part numbers for GT350 oil filters. From the Owner's Supplements that I've collected from the Ford Owner's site:

    2015/2016 supplement - FL2069ST spin-on
    2017 supplement - FL2069ST spin-on is specified in Versions 1 and 3 of the 2017 Supplement. It's only Version 2 that shows the FL2062 cartridge filter that was in late production cars that year.
    2018 supplement - FL2062 cartridge is specified in Versions 1 and 2 of the 2018 Supplement
    2019 supplement - FL2087 cartridge is specified in Version 1 of the supplement. V2 is not up yet.

    Anyone have anymore information on this? Just got my car, went to the dealer yesterday and was quoted $40 for the filter. Something seemed odd to me (besides the jacked up dealer price) so I told him to hold off. Ordered the FL2062 off AutoNation Ford @ $6 each, but then later got an email saying the part was superseded/upgraded for the 2019 GT350/GT500 with the FL2087 @ $18 and asked if I wanted to go that route.

    I'm unable to find information on the actual difference so.. Someone should be investigating what the change to the filter design is lol

    What additional info do you want or need that wasn’t covered here? If you can get a 2062, get it and use it. Otherwise the 2087 is the correct filter. Or get an Amsoil EA15K43. That’s really all there is to it. If you’re looking for technical specs between the two filters, the support inside the filter is different, the media may be different; it’s just an update/redesign. Not much you can really do about it since the 2062’s are going away. Don’t overthink it.

    Yep, it appears that the 2087 is just an updated part #. Pictures here -

    For warranty purposes, can anyone confirm if the FL-2087 is retroactively recommended for the 2017-2018 cars?

    Yea, I was hoping someone cut the two up and compared internals for potential changes. Also, whether or not this new filter needs to be used for warranty reasons etc.

    Doesn't seem like the FL2062 is hard to get and is significantly cheaper. I'm more inclined to believe there must be some kind of important change/update to the FL2087.

    I went with the new Amsoil Ea 15K 43 for my 2018. It's not a daily, will get an annual change like my GT500. Says good for 15,000 miles which I won't get even half in a year.

    I know it's a late reply. I just went through the same issue, called Ford Performance to confirm FL-2087 is the upgrade for FL-2062, yes it is. Seems the filter paper is thicker than the older version filter. Now Ford has updated the dealer and parts catalog to show FL-2087 as the only recommended filter for 2017 and upwards V8 5.2L engines.

    Hi,

    You are correct. The part number FL-2062 has been updated to FL-2087 by Ford for 2017 and above 5.2 L V8 engines. AMSOIL EA15K43 is not available anymore with Amsoil dealers or Amsoil website for 2017 (maybe a few old stock units can be available here and there somewhere around). Hopefully they will release an updated filter soon and get the website updated. For 2019 year, Amsoil has posted EA15K43-EA as the recommended equivalent of FL-2087 filter, I suppose that should fit the 2017, 2018 year engines as well.

    Where did you get this info? I ask because it is incorrect. The 43 is available and listed right on the drop down when you search for a filter to add to your shopping cart. Someone may be thrown off track because it does not show up when you do a vehicle search. This is a glitch that they are working to fix (it was there and fell off; it was not removed intentionally from the vehicle search function for any specific reason). There are also no updates coming to the 43 that anyone is aware of. Just an educated guess on my part based on my knowledge of Amsoil products, but the Amsoil filter in Amsoil's eyes does not need an update just because the 2062 was updated/phased out. The Amsoil filter would have been superior to the 2062 to begin with. And as I stated elsewhere, no one has a clue why the 2062 was updated, and any speculation that it's related to this engine is just that, speculation. The 2062 (and now 2087) filter is an off the shelf filter in Ford's inventory and used on several other vehicles. It's just as likely that the update was driven by something not even remotely related to us. Only because it's relevant, I'm a dealer and have a buddy at Amsoil in their tech department; that's the source of my info.

    I called my nearest Amsoil dealer to place an order for the 5w50 oil and the filter, he mentioned oil filter is not available. I'm sure he went through the website and hit the glitch you are mentioning. Hopefully Amsoil will fix this glitch soon.

    I just searched the website the way you suggested and yes i stand corrected, it's available as Part number: EA15K43 with its product code: EA15k43-EA.

    Thank you for the information, it helps for me and the community.

    I did a search and it comes up now - it's been fixed.
    I don't think it's fair to say that Ford phased out the 2062; they didn't. It's still in use for a selection of smaller engined Ford vehicles. What Ford did was remove the FL2062 from the service and parts system for the Voodoo engine and replace it with the FL2087.

    The issue here is whether it's safe to say that an alternative filter designed to replace the FL2062 is a suitable replacement for the FL2087. The facts from Ford are that the 2062 and 2087 are not similar enough to allow the 2062 to be a suitable replacement for the 2087. With that in mind, it's risky to argue that while the FL2062 is no longer ok in a Voodoo, a well-crafted aftermarket copy of an FL2062 is just fine.

    If the 43 filter passes the same bench and engine tests that an FL2087 passes, then great, but if that information is not available from your buddy in the tech department, then I'd be wary of raising expectations.
