Questions on Ecoboost

I obviously have a 2011 F-150 with the Ecoboost. Looking in the manual it shows that is takes an oil filter with the number FL-500S. After digging through some more papers in the glovebox I come across a maintenance and specifications sheet that says it takes a FL-2055 filter. Does one filter better than the other. I wonder what the difference is.
Also I want to get a fumoto oil drain valve for the truck. They need to know if the 3.5L is a 12valve or 24 valve engine. Sorry I am not a mechanic.

The engine has 24 valves, sorry I can't help on the oil filter thing though.

Subject:EFC00063DC New Part Number FL2055, 2011 F-150 3.5L Ecoboost Oil Filter
INTRODUCING THE FL2055
Motorcraft is pleased to announce the availability of the FL2055. This all new oil filter is the service filter for the 2011 model year F-150, 3.5L Ecoboost engine.
All 2011 F-150 trucks equipped with a 3.5L Ecoboost engine were produced with a small diameter (77mm/3 inch) oil filter. The service replacement oil filter, the FL2055, is a larger diameter (94mm/3.75inch) filter. The FL2055 has significantly higher filtration efficiency and capacity than most other oil filters and is designed for added engine protection and long life. For proper engine maintenance, a FL2055 oil filter or an equivalent filter meeting Ford material and design specifications must be used.
If a replacement oil filter is installed that does not meet Ford specifications, engine damage may occur which may not be eligible for warranty coverage. The oil capacity for the 3.5L V6 Ecoboost engine with the FL2055 oil filter is 6.2 quarts (5.9L).

Great find! The oil change interval is 10K miles so it's no surprise that the filter size needed to be increased.

Does it use 5W-30? Do they recommend full synthetic? I would think so with 10k mile intervals.

According to the Ford rep that accompanied my ecoboost drive, the 3.5L requires 5w-30 MC semi syn oil. I think full syn would be a good idea but th e MC oil seems to be able to handle the job.

I'm a big fan of nipples (on certain things), too.

If I run Motorcraft semi-synthetic I'll probably stick with my usual 3k-5k mile oil changes. I'm not real comfortable with 10k mile changes without full synthetic oil. Maybe my 3k-5k mile routine will be overkill but I'll sleep better at night.
