S3 1.8T AMK - Larger Oil Filter
Looking to service my 1.8T AMK before winter kicks in and whilst reading these forums I've noted that some members use a larger oil filter with part number - 068 115 561f
Does this fit my type of engine as well?
And there seems to be mixed thoughts on flushing the engine our not with regard to whether it should be done and if so what product should be used.
Extra options for transverse 1.8t :)
Been watching this and would like to add something for the people who have a 1.8t with transverse engine in case they don t like the way the bigger filter fits...I had the B version on my toledo 1.8t auq and it fits no problem but I had to put some cardboard to protect the lower radiator hose from the oil filter..and I researched the net further to find a oil filter with the same specs as the stadard one(mann w719/30 aka 06A 115 561 B) and I found one.. same thickness but longer...have it on my car and has the same bypass setting ..its a mann w730/1 or the mahle oc221 .
The only difference is the length...stock one is around 120mm long and w730/1 is 170mm long :) and there is no need for me to put anything to protect the coolant hose .
As for the bigger thicker one I am also going to try the mann equivalent of mahle oc470/068 115 561 F wich is W 940/66 https://www.mann-hummel.com/mf_prodk...nOLK/clear.gif...and since its used in the latest 1.8t cars like seat exeo I guess it superceeds the w940/25 aka 068 115 561 B .
P.s Not sure if its just me but I have the feeling that my car has more torque at low revs with the bigger oil filter ?!
I thought I d share this :)
