Id also point out that swapping to a 7-8 quart oil pan significantly increases the surface heat transfer area and in my experience that significant reduces oil temps all by itself.
Id also point out that adding an auxiliary oil cooler with electric fan ,mated with larger AN#10 oil line size,and use of the longer higher capacity oil filter(s) to any corvette (STOCK OR BIG BLOCK ENGINE SWAP) adds effective oil flow volume to the engine, this can be a HUGE advantage when theres limited room due to ground clearance or header clearance issues that limits the size of the oil pan itself that can be used.

this is a good value in a chevy gen 1 sbc and BBC v8 oil filter

keep in mind oil accumulates soot and acids over time, and even the fine black soot , most filters won,t strain out causes wear, so oil needs to be changed, even if its well filtered
THERE'S SOME BIG DIFFERENCES in BOTH construction and quality in oil filters, some have well under 200 square inches of filter surface, some over 450 sq inches

Image

most quality filter have a minimum of 300 sq inches of filter medium and an anti-drain back valve, look for those features in the links


Anti-Drain Back Valves, are a plastic/or rubber baffle that prevents reverse directional flow of oil thru the filter, this tends to speed up the oil flow to the bearings on cold starts because the oil passages in the block will be full rather than needing the pump to re-fill them first, it usually consists of an easily flexible circular lip of plastic that is placed under the outer feed holes that bends out of the way to allow normal directional flow with negligible resistance but flops over and closes off those feed holes if oil tries to flow in the reverse direction thru the filter

BTW if you have a sudden drop in oil pressure on any engine with no other symptoms, you might want to replace the oil filter and check oil levels before you panic as its not uncommon for some brands of oil filters to fail internally

less than ideal filters

IVE always preferred the BYE_PASS versions as I felt dirty oil is preferable to NO OIL,which is what you get if the filter gets clogged with assembly lube or blows a seal ring with the non-bypass versions and not wanting to wait for the engine to reach operational temperatures which while not truly mandatory with a non- bypass adapter its a good idea to at least allow the oil to get warm before driving to keep the filters from excessive pressures

obviously these won,t fit all chevy applications but if you have the room for the longer, spin on filters

yes there are CLEAN AND RE-USE OIL FILTERS, and in line oil filters for oil coolers

if youve ever wanted to keep a close eye on your engines heath and have a better chance of finding and fixing potential problems BEFORE they get really expensive, it takes close inspection, now cutting your oil filters open will give you a good deal of info, but there ARE oil analysis kits available that you use to take a sample of your oil and send it in for chemical analyisis for a detailed look at what condition your engine may be in!

the QUALITY BRANDS OF longer and larger diam oil filters with the larger filter surface area have less total pressure per square inch resisting internal flow and also tend to clog up at a slower rate making their use generally a better idea than the smaller size filters, obviously its both the total surface area and how restrictive the filter medium is or how well it filters and the size of the holes that will effect both the flow and the filtration, but in almost every application a longer filter with a larger surface area hold a distinct advantage (read thru the sub links early in the thread) one other advantage is the larger capacity oil filters tend to allow the oil in the filter as it flows thru to dissipate some engine heat to air passing over the filters surface

BTW I DON,T KNOW WHO SELLS THESE BUT IVE GOT TWO ON MY CORVETTES OIL FILTERS AND THEY EASILY REDUCE OIL TEMPS 7-15 DEGREES the ones I have are about 6" long and fit about 90% of the diam of the filter

while tall high capacity oil filters may not be the normal choice or fit in many applications they are a great way to increase engine durability where they can be used, but its a good idea to keep the filter length less than the oil pan sump depth to reduce the chances of loosing a filter to a speed bump or road trash damage
