    I have a box full of brand new filters from my 72 400 small block. Got rid of the engine and still have the filters. Will the oil filters work on my 88 350 tbi engine?

    Here's WIX shows for an 88 C10 with 350:

    51060XP
    51036XP
    51061
    51036

    And for a 76 with 400:

    51060XP
    51061

    I didn't take the time to see how the 060, 061, and 036 filters differ. Maybe length?

    I do know XP is their highest quality filter.

    The truck filter, it's actually better larger capacity and don't have the bypass, but I plug up the bypass anyways.

    The WIX XP filters are recommended for synthetic oil generally.
