    After seeing this post I tried to fit the same adapter with Mocal NPT -> AN fittings and their 90 degree bends, and I have the same problem!

    It seems as though the new batch of these won't let you thread the adapters deep enough without risking stripping the threads, to get enough clearance.

    I plan to get 90 deg npt -> -10 adapters and straight AN hose ends, hopefully I can find the npt adapter in black!

    would it be okay if i went with the type II, dual circuit system....but instead of putting the mocal sandwich adapter/ thermostat on the block can i place it on the remote oil filter mount. i dont see why i couldnt but just asking...


    so it would come out of the engine into the remote oil filter mount then the mocal sandwich adapter then the oil filter screwed on to that.

    You can, but why even use the Type II at all. The single circut is much more simple and uses less hose.
    The only reason i even mentioned the Type II is I have seen it done that way...had the same thoughts about it too

    !
    I have done nearly the same thing. Although I am not mounting where you are. I wanted to point out (one of IJ's posts) the hard 90 degree bend will cause some restriction in the circuit.

    Hi Jdub ! I got my oil relocate kit hooked up and want to know what you think? I used -8 lines because my oil pump is not shimmed. Oil pressure is couple psi up and the car warms up quicker, cooler oil, better oil change location and no more leaks. Thank you Jdub for the oil relocate instructions !!!

    Looks good!

    What kind of cooler is that and what are it's dimensions? You shoe horned that baby right in the stock location

    The only real critique (a minor one) is using a hard 90 deg AN/NPT fitting on the block adapter...they are more restrictive than the 90 deg sweep hose ends. You used it at the end of the circuit though and should not cause you any problem. Especially since you got a pressure increase. You should see a psi increase at higher RPM (above 3000 or so) now that you've eliminated the relief valve in the stock filter head.

    I just measured my oil cooler , the core measure 11.5" x 4.8" x 2." 16 row the area is a bit small but the volume is almost the same as B&M one . I used one 90 degree an -8/npt at return on block adaptor because i had no choice as i said earlier on this thread , the good thing is that as soon as it hit the end it will see .500" i/d so 3/8 to 1/2 is not that bad but 1/2 to 3/8 is bad , that's why i wouldn't use it for any outlet pressure side .thanks!
