I noticed the owners manual calls for the UPF63R oil filter. I'm going to do my own oil changes. I stopped by two different dealerships and both dont sell the filter. They told me they just throw a different filter on when doing oil changes because they dont have the right one in stock. Just thought I give you guys a heads up. I'm just going to order a couple of them from rock auto so I have the "Correct" filter according to the manual.

ADA.ACE1... I use the AC Delco PF63 oil filter... it is easy find.. .same filter as my 2018 Silverado 6.2l... even my 2010 Silverado 5.3. There is a web site for oil filter conversions... Oil filter cross reference
I order my filter by the case from RockAuto... makes it a pretty cheap oil change... CAD $4.13ea The Deal wants $12 each...
I run nothing but synthetic oil.. . easy to find deals
Also,
I put a small, rare earth magnet on the bottom of the outside of the oil filter to contain small metal particles in the filter.
enjoy

Yea but the upr filter is higher quality and also recomend as the correct filter in my manual. 6 bucks on rock auto. That website does not list upf63r or a replacement filter. The filters are different, ones inside is made of plastic, other one very heavy and made of metal.

Just bought a new RS. I took a photo of the factory oil filter.

It’s a PF-63. I have this same engine in a 2016 Impala also using a PF-63. Based on what they actually installed on the vehicle from the factory I’m going to use the PF-63s. I don’t care what they put in the owner’s manual it obviously isn’t too important.

I just did an oil change on the wifes Camaro 3.6. The owners manual states PF63E which is what I put on. I just bought a 2020 Blazer RS and the book says UPF63R.

What is the difference between these two filters? I'd like to consolidated and just use whichever is better.
