Remote oil filter.


Recommended Posts

Thinking of getting one for the 2drx4.

 

Owners of a renix 4.0 know how silly the stock oil filter is mounted - vertically with the threads down. It means you're guarenteed to dump a fair amount of oil when you change it, and it might lead to priming issues.

 

I know a guy can rotate the oil filter adapter, or run the newer style (HO) one which mounts the filter sideways. But that doesn't really fix the problem.

 

But I saw this on summitracing: http://store.summitracing.com/partdetai ... toview=sku

 

For $50 you could throw it somewhere else - the firewall assumably would be the best place if you could find the room. Then the filter is oriented correctly. And you can use a larger filter. They have a dual setup too, and they make them for the HO.

 

Anybody already got one? Where'd ya mount it? I'm tempted to go this route for my next oil change. Any other thoughts?

Say Hornbrod - where does the second line from the filter go? It appears to route towards the front - perhaps to an oil cooler?

 

I have been thinking that this would be a good mod to help with the engine heat problem. As I understand it, a remote filter through a heavy-duty cooler could make a 15-30 degree difference in oil temp...possibly making a cooler block...

 

just a thought.

That's exactly right. These pics were sent to me from one of the guys on the stroker forum. He claims running the engine oil thru the cooler and remote filter made a big difference in the stroker engine temps.
