    My dodge mechanic said there is a oil filter that is more Hellcat specific, its white and says SRT on it, and that the holes into the filter are larger then regular ones. But i couldn't find them online, only at the dealer. I'm sure others will chime in. Asking about oil, and filters on a car forum is like that recent internet fad of "Is the sweater blue or brown". Everyone will have some input lol

    The SRT filter 5038041AA MO041 is made in Poland. The SRT filter uses a leaf spring for bypass that operates at higher pressures than conventional filters. It's designed to flow 9 to 11 gallons per minute. It traps 21 micron nominal and 90% over 10 micron. It uses a neopreme anti drain back valve. If you are hard core Mopar (meaning will only run OEM) it's the filter you want to run.

    Quantum Blue has a filter with better filtration, a spring for bypass and a silicone anti drain back valve, identical flow rate that specs out better on paper. And is made in the USA. I have no experience with it.

    Be cautious switching. Many options and good filters out there. If you switch, make sure you spec out flow and pressure carefully, not just filtration. Especially with Hellcat engines they run high oil pressures.

    I've just bought 6 SRT MO-041 oil filters. With shipping they work out $30 each, £20.
    My guy shipped 6 standard Mopar filters with the car but going on Dr B's recommendation these are what I should be using

    The stock filter will be going on mine, if it ever shows... It will be the frequency of oil change intervals, & the conditions it's driven in will determine that.

    I doubt I will ever have a clogged filter or an engine that wears prematurely due to contaminates in the oil.

    I wouldn't drop a whole lot of money over the stock filter based on the promise of longer life or some gain in performance...........
