Looks like they are squeezing the manufacturing cost by reducing content. On the other hand, their marketing department isn't missing out on an opportunity to provide less for more!
will the 212a fit on the nnbs? mine says the short can 113a


also it looks like both are the same size different end cap makes it look smaller

Yes, the 212s fit on LS motors.

I switched off of them a few years ago, they dropped my oil pressure too much.

I try to stay with ACDLECO ultra filters, they work and guaranteed to fit. I tried the Mobile1 filters and didn’t like them. I saw an MPG drop with their oil and filter…. Now I use ACdelco ultra filters and Penzoil synthetic 05w20 and have had better results oilpressure/fuel economy/performance for my combo.

Gotta have prime video or motor trend to see it https://www.motortrendondemand.com/detail/oil-filter-shootout/1897867/

Basically Fram ultra is good, not the best but what I gathered is it's fine for a daily driver and will last a longtime. The cheaper frams are total garbage.
I have Prime Video but it says I still need a Motor Trend subscription so I guess I’ll have to use my imagination. That’s dangerous, never know where it will lead me. Which one is supposedly the best?

Pretty sure if you have prime it should let you watch it but you have to go through prime video to the motortrend app and then search for engine masters. It's a pain but the tests are worth it, you may end up rethinking your entire existence.
