Doesn't the 2011-12 5.0 use the same filter as the 2010 4.6?
Tried to search but recently find the search function less then helpful...

As per the owners manual, the 5.0 and 3.7 use a FL500S oil filter. Previous 4.6 engines used a FL820S. Ford has switched many of it's engines to the 500 filter over the past few years.

Thanks for the reply. I was unsure. Is the Fl 820S the same basic filter as the Fl 820 marketed as the Ford Racing Filter?

I just put a Ford Racing FL-820 on my 5.0 yesterday. The FL 500 and 820 both work.

I appreciate all the input. I will either go with the Fl 820 or the K&N HP 2011. The K&N is easier to find. Have not used the K&N before as I have usually used the Amsoil or Mobil 1 or Pure One in my other vehicles. The availability of filters for the 5.0 is not abundant. This is my first Ford since my '66 Mustang many years ago..
