"Actually yes some of the JDM motors come with the smaller filter like found on the newest Civics, RS-Xs, and CR-Vs. The diameter of the rubber seal on the bottom of the filter (where the filter seals against the oil filter housing) is the exact same as the normal PT7-style 1988-2000 Civic ones or Integra ones, Accord ones, etc.
Basically what I'm saying is that bigger ans smaller filters are pretty much interchangable and I've *heard* that the smaller filter *could* up oil pressure some, but I'm not really sure if that's true or not. I guess it's possible since the filter is smaller, but oh well."
