If you look at our catalog online, it lists all specs including can size, ADB, Relief valve setting pressure and location of o ring. Takes alot of research for very little gain. The best thing to do is use the best filter. Like FRAM Ultra, a 99% efficiency filter with 15k capacity. There are other top quality filters from other brands as well. Look for 99% efficiency rated using the ISO 4548-12 test, should say that right on the box.
We have video on our website that explains all the testing and what these terms mean if you want to learn more.
Good information. I will give the fram ultra a try next swap!
