LF3630 is the Non-Stratpore version
For the non-bypass filter setup people I would recommend the Venturi over the Stratapore. The Venturi gets you the Stratapore and a By-pass/Full flow element for just a few bucks more.

Along with recommending you order your filters from Dale who provides a great service I would like to make a couple of comments on this filtering stuff ....
1. For the stock spin on location there might be a small advantage in using some of the synthetic material filters such as the Mobil 1 and some of the FG stratapores. However, in general the standard paper ones do a great job for the "chunkies" as I call them.
2. If you want "by pass" level filtering I would not waste my money on the dual FG filter but get a real bypass filter such as the Amsoil, OG, whatever. Only with those will you be addressing the under 5 to 6 micron bearing type wear material filtering.
Oil Analysis will not tell you anything about how well whatever oil filtering setup is doing ... they typically throw out all wear materials over 5 microns and do not tell you anything about what is left over particle size. OA is only good for general engine wear and for identifying potential/impending problems such as a big time bearing problem mainly in these engines from the turbo and other "gross" level problems.
