Remote Oil Filter Install

Has anyone else done this, besides the person who wrote the tech article?

This does not seem like a expensive or complicated project.....Am I misguided somehow?

Pros /Cons?

Thanks in Advance!

I'm just about to install it on the 90 XR7 with a 4.6L DOHC that I'm putting together. It isn't difficult at all, and it will make it much easier to change the filter.

I can be expensive depending on what type of line/fittings you choose to run.

What Scott said. You can use the rubber hose they give and do it for $40, or you can use AN hose and spend $140 after the $40 kit.

Do it right or don't do it at all. If one of those rubber hoses pops off or gets a leak, at the very least you'll have a big mess, and it could send the car out of control. Not to mention your engine seizing from oil starvation.

Picture this.....

I pull up to the chick-Fill-A drive through with a blower sticking out of a hole in my hood. The kid at the drive thru sez... "WOW, What you got in there and Can I hear it?" I rev it and one of those rubber hoses that comes with the "kit" pops off and Cougie turns into the EXXon Valdez with oil all over the place and a flatbed in route. To make matters worse the clean-up kid comes out with a bottle of windex and a rag to clean up the 4 quarts I left on the driveway. Lucky for me this did not go down on the highway or it would have been real ugly.

Ugh, what a nightmare Scott.
I've been thinking about the relocation, but now I'll plan better.
Hey, Scott. Where did you locate your filter mount?

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

I installed a kit also. It's just the basic $40 one from Summit though. It sure does make oil changes a helluva lot easier though! I did have a rubber line blow off though on my way home one night . It was my fault though, I had kinda stripped one of those hose clamps and it finally blew before I was unlazy enough to put a new one on. But now I have a new one on and it hasn't given me any trouble yet. I mounted mine under the battery tray also, but it's bolted to the "frame" horizontally, not directely bolted to the underside of the battery tray. One day I will do it Frankencougie style with all them fancy fittin's

You are talking about the Gagfish tutorial, right?

I've done it, but take Scott's advice when it comes to the hoses. Buy the $40 kit out of the Summit catalog, and once you get it measure out the amount of AN hose you would need given your setup location, and buy yourself the AN. I put in the kit with little difficulty (hard to believe considering my lack of skill, but yes, it's true), waited about a month, and then upgraded the rubber hoses to AN lines. Pricey - yes. But the peace of mind you'll have knowing that the hose is not going to blow or tear is immeasurable. Good luck.

I worked on a kit right before taking my car to the dyno. I bought push lok and braided with all the 8AN fittings. I busted a knuckle on a vice the week before so the push-lok got the nod(not like anyone cares).

When I first turned the key that was the first thing to leak and I didn't have time to figure out where the leak was coming from. With the big bars it was a pita putting it in, but I never do things right the first time....so I may try again in the near future.

If anyone is interested in installing one, I have all the fittings for the TD kit and I'll sell the filter mount too. Let me know.

I have stuff for braided and stuff for push-lok here somewhere.
