Changed Oil Filter to Mobil 1 M1-206 much better

well at 803 miles i decided to change my oil filter. I bought the mobil 1 M1-206 filter and it is a nice step up over the factory one. The ac delco that comes stock on the tbss is very small, to small for me so this is a nice bump up.

And it all works fine.

ps- guy on e bay had a pack of 6 shipped to you for 40 bucks

Yep, just received my six-pack of M1-206's from ebay guy, $45 delivered to my door. Glad to hear that they fit properly, and the little extra oil capacity is nice too!

What's up with the part numbers?

I got an email from Dale on eBay and he replied:
The 06 Trailblazer with the 6.0L takes an M1-107 and the Trailblazer with the 4.8L takes the M1-206 and the Trailblazer with the 5.3L takes the M1-107 also.

So what about the M1-206 you put in? Is it larger or did you get the wrong one. I will call Mobil One this week to ask

There is another thread on this already just search "oil filter list". That being said, yes the M1-107 is the direct replacement, but the M1-206 will work and yes it is larger. Will give you slightly more oil capacity.

Welcome!

I have an 02 TB with the 4.2L I6 and I have run the K&N filters before. Worked fine for me.

The M1-filter filters well, but IMHO too well. What I mean by this is the resultant increase in oil-pressure that I saw on my FBody after switching to the M1 filter. In other words, the filter media was acting as a restriction - and this was with the 206 filter! Swapped back to a Delco, and the oil-pressure came back to more 'normal' levels.

Its been "proven" over and over on BITOG that the extra filtration of the M1 filter isn't really necessary for obtaining stellar UOA results. Many in fact prefer the K&N filter which does a fairly poor (comparatively) job of filtration, but has excellent "flow" characteristics. Me, personally, the Delcos work just fine.

Wow, thats good info to know. I never noticed that with my K&N, but then again I never really paid attention to it either. I only ran 1 K&N on my TB before I switched to Amsoil's filter, it is easier to order the oil and filter from one place than two.
