    It appears that the oil filter number for 2016 is different than the 2015. Does anyone have any knowledge or information on this filter change?

    rayzazoo provided the following some time back.

    Part # 04884899AB is the correct part number according to Mopar. It is the same oil filter used on the 5.7, 6.1, 6.4 and now 6.2L engines.

    Number On Image: 1 historically is the piece that had to be changed out on the older engines (5.7 and 6.1) when people wanted to add the Police Oil Cooler (it's now standard on the 6.4L engine). It was a royal pain in the butt to remove it (to include having to use a blow torch to heat it up and one heck of a breaker bar.)

    Part # 04884899AB (Oil Filter)
    Number On Image: 2
    Category: 6.2L Gas; Engine
    MSRP $8.35 Price may vary by dealer

    Part # 68171066PA (0w-40 Engine Oil) 1 Quart
    Number On Image: 3
    Category: 6.2L Gas; Engine
    MSRP $9.40 Price may vary by dealer

    There is also an SRT oil filter. That's what I run.

    The oil filter number for the 2015 is 04884899AB (NAPA 7899). The oil filter number for the 2016 is 05038041AA (NAPA 7063). I work for NAPA and this is exactly how it is listed and interchanges. I don't know why it is different for 2016.

    the 041 is the viper filter that most run on the 2015.

    Lets all go back to January 2015 when this topic was posted in the thread Oil filter part # Mopar . Posts number 20 and 32 are from VERY trusted sources. I believe them when they recommend filter 041. Your mileage may vary...

    The 05038041AA filter also fits the 2016 Viper and has a 12psi bypass vs. a 16psi bypass.

    Good to know that 041 (Viper filter) is the standard part number for the Hellcat :)

    There's some disagreement on the bypass rating. The SRT engineers claimed the 041 has a higher bypass rating than the 899. So 12 doesn't make sense

    I just bought new mopar filter at Walmart. Last two letters in part number are now AC and not AB. I bought another at dealer just to verify. It was AC too. This was the only difference I see. Curious to see what other guys have bought lately. My guess is the number just superceded the old one. Manufacturers are always superceding part numbers on oil filters. Check your stock. Curious what guys are buying now. My guess is if you find an AB filter your dealer is not rotating his stock.

    not sure if the Srt type viper filter is standard for the 2016 Hellcat? This is not what dealer parts listing showed when I bought filter. Curious to see what is in my 2016 when I do first oil change soon. I spoke with SRT tech line and man I talked to said SRT/viper filters less oil. All I needed to hear.

    I can't imagine any scenario in Southern California where I would need to run 0W40 oil maybe 5W40 but more likely 10W40. Especially now going in to the warmer months of the year.

    0-40 is for HP purposes only--lower the weight, the higher the HP--NASCAR Teams run straight 5 w--they would run water if they could..
