Default Oil Filter for VG30 2x4 with Headers

If any of you are brave enough to install headers on a 2x4 truck with the V6 engine, you will need to install this filter:

K&N HP-1010

The standard Nissan filter has too large of a diameter to fit out of the gap between the headers and the engine frame on the 2x4 trucks.

The K&N HP-1010 is about an inch less in diameter, so it just squeezes in.

The charts I see all say that this filter does not fit the VG30 engine, but it does.

Generally, I swap my oil only in the fall but do a full oil and filter swap in the spring. Since this K&N is a little smaller, I may start replacing the oil filter at each oil change.

Does anyone have any input on this, good or bad?
