    Yes, it will cause an oil leak! But, you can tell the difference between the old and new filter types. They also changed what weight oil they take, from 5/30 to 5/20.

    The new filter is (without actually measuring) probably close to 2 inches longer than the previous filter, and they are NOT interchangeable. The oil filter housing has been modified to accommodate the new style filter.

    Wonder if it would be difficult to swap up to the new design.

    You would have to take both the upper and lower intake manifolds off to get to the bolts securing the filter housing which is attached to the oil cooler. You also have to drain the coolant first because the coolant hoses attached to the oil cooler have passages that continue through the cooler into the block, and you will contaminate the oil with coolant and the coolant with oil, which means youll have to change the oil and flush the coolant. It's really more of a pain than it's worth, in my opinion anyway.
