Is anyone running a remote oil filter and cooler? If yes, what adapter(s) are you using and where did you get it/them?

Yes, I am. You use a spin on adapter for a Ford. The thread is 3/4 x 16. Just buy an off the shelf adapter or kit. I put together my own lines. So I could mount the filter where I wanted. I also use a Fram PH 1 filter on the remote mount. The cooler use what ever you can fit or want.

If you want to use a K&N ProGold oil filter, ask the parts counter for K&N part number HP-3001 (it's for a 5 L Mustang application), that's what I use.

If you can use the 5.0l Mustang filter acant you buy an off the shelf oil cooler set up for the same car?

Most Ford and Crysler products appear to use the 3/4 16 so that block adapter should work with the Swift block. The new filter head must be for what ever filter you intend to use.

Forgive me for being a dummy, but is there any advantage to the external filter? Or is it just part of making the oil cooler installation easier by using the existing oil filter mounting area :)

GeoZukiGti, that's more to allow the oil filter to be easy to remove when the car is turbocharged...

the tread is very common. i started using ford filters a few years back, because of the increase in oil for starters. then went to an external filter with an oil cooler after getting some very distrubing oil temps.

i need to find the pics i had, nitro can you help?

In my case I'm installing the DOHC in RWD Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite and the filter is in the way of the exhaust.

here's the links to what i did on my car. i went a little overboard running hydraulic lines. and next time will be using something lighter and more cost effective

That's a nice setup. Now your car is a Swifterpilar :)

These banjo bolts, weren't u concerned about them being too restrictive for oil flow?

I'd recognize an Rx7 oil cooler anywhere. The rotary engine gets 1/3 of its cooling from the oil. If those banjo bolts are good enough for Mazda, they're good enough for me.

(my Rx7 is an SCCA ITS prepared car and I never see oil temps too warm even in August in the middle of a race)

banjo bolts flow not too bad, they are of large enuf size that i'm not worried, plus I ported them before i put em together. them bolts have 2 oppossing holes in the bolts.

You must be carefull here. Most factory oil cooling systems, either from volvo, mazda or nissan use an auxiliary line for the oil cooler just so that restriction on the oil flowing through as little or no impact on the overall engine's oil pressure.
Most aftermarket remote oil filter kits for the swift (including mine) have the entire oil flowing through the cooler. If the lines are too small or create restriction, it will starve your engine badly at high revs.

the pressure drop was my first concern, but after some research, and a lot of looking around I choose the rex oil cooler, they are kinda a double pass set up, as both inlet and outlet are on the one side,
one neat feature is that the RX7 oil cooler has a 180deg thermostat that bypasses the cooler until it gets hot enuf, so you aren't trying to pump neg 10 deg oil thru a oil cooler. it works very well. i'm happy.

I don't know about other factory oil coolers but I do know about the Mazda Rx7. All the engine oil flows through the cooler at full pressure. It's an integral part of the engine's cooling system.

Not only is the Rx7 oil cooler one of the best coolers around because it is so large but my local junkyard doesn't seem to know how good it is. They sell them for $35! I have several because I used to have temperature problems in my Rx7 on the racetrack and I thought I might rig up a double oil cooler setup. The problem turned out to be water related and I've never needed to mess with the oil cooler.

I don't think I need an oil cooler or remote filter on my Swift but if I do, it will definitely be just like Liam's
