Heard today that the BF blocks don't use the Z9 oil filters, instead a Z451 (or something like that). Is it true and if so, why?

gotta ask.. like who cares?


Who cares about anything in life?
well a. I'm interested to know why they changed it. b. it's kinda sad after what 30 odd years of Z9! and also it probably means that eventually Z9 filters price will go up as they'll be less used as taxis and fleets will be going to this other one, also means that current BF owners prolly have to buy an expensive filter. but really I'm just interested to know why they've changed it.
