Somewhere I saw a posting about using a oil filter from a 4.3 V6 on a 3.8.
I guess the reason was so a full 5 quarts of oil.
Other then that is there a real reason for this?
Is there an advantage?
:eek2:

Just having a bit more oil is the only reason. It'll help dilute contaminants and improve oil life.

It will work on Series 2's with the Aluminum pan. That I can guarantee. The filter is for a 4x4 S10/Blazer w/ the 4.3L V6. Wix Number is 51036, NAPA Gold is 1036, K&N is HP-2001, etc. Do NOT use Fram of any type. They're all varying levels of garbage, with the orange ones being the worst of the worst.

The reason is for more oil for more dilution, better cooling, and longer life as well as a larger filter media for better, longer filtration.

You can use it. The stock-sized one will filter just fine for most of the cars here. If you're doing it for more oil, the SII has no problem holding 5 quarts in the sump. Mine's had 5 quarts dumped into the engine at every oil change with zero issues in the past 40k miles I've done it.

Agreed, Fram are junk. I'd use a $1.50 Korean filter before a Fram. The $1.50 Korean Proton filter is constructed better...
