I might be wrong, but I would not think it would lower the oil pressure. It might take a bit longer to build up pressure on start up. :shrugs: But I know for a fact that it's the same filter that I used on my 91 Corolla 1.6.vegeta4ss said:using a larger filter would work...although I dont really think its going to help you for flow. Your motor is designed to run with a standard volume filter, if you put a bigger one on it will lower your oil pressure because its bigger. Probably wont hurt anything...but you never know.
