AVOID OIL MESSES ON YOUR ENGINE, FRAME, AND HEADERS BY FACILITATING OIL FILTER CHANGES WITH A COMPLETE OIL FILTER RELOCATION KIT from appliedspeed.com

WITH ENGINES WITH THE OIL FILTER INSTALLED HORIZONTALLY YOU CAN ALSO FILL YOUR OIL FILTER AND AVOID SPILLS BEFORE INSTALLING IT.

The best oil filter relocation kit has all the correct fittings, adapters, oil filter mounts, and high-temperature and pressure oil hoses. The system should complement the oiling design with appeal, enduring finish, and minimal restriction to flow. Moreover, the kit should quickly adapt to an oil cooler and a thermostat.

Why hunt for all the parts when you can get a complete kit by EARL'S Racing from APPLIEDSPEED.com https://appliedspeed.com/collections/oil-filter-relocation-kits-1 

You need an oil filter relocation kit when you transplant a large engine into a smaller engine bay or install a turbo on a four-cylinder engine. There, the header will interfere with the oil filter. Some cars have their oil filter in a place that creates a mess each time the filter is replaced, with spills over the frame and the headers.

BUY A COMPLETE KIT and make the installation easy and economical.

The APPLIEDSPEED.com kits are versatile and attractive to adapt to any vehicle like Racing Cars, Jeeps, Off-road vehicles, Trucks, Rock Crawlers, Cruisers, Towing, Street Rods, LT, LS engines, Dodge-Chrysler Hemis, Fords, GMCs, Chevys, Toyotas, VWs, and many more. The kits and their parts meet and surpass those requirements.https://appliedspeed.com/collections/oil-filter-relocation-kits-1 

1- The APPLIEDSPEED oil filter mount, due to its dual in and outlet configuration, offers the option to install the inlets and outlets from either side. Some old-style adapters only have the inlet on one side and the outlet on the other. Others have two inlets on the sides and the outlet on the top. This last offering leaves a somewhat odd appearance. The oil filter support should be flow contoured to minimize pressure loss and reduce temperature increase.

Due to its dual in-and-outlets configuration, the oil filter mount can install the inlets and outlets from either side. The oil filter pedestals from APPLIEDSPEED.COM include a convenient 1/8-NPT thread hole to install an oil pressure or temperature adapter.

2- The engine landing adapters from appliedspeed, https://appliedspeed.com/collections/oil-filter-relocation-kits-1, match the target engines precisely without modifications and are flow-contoured to protect oil pressure.  Adapters from appliedspeed.com allow the fittings to clock properly toward the oil filter pedestal without over or under-tightening it. The engine landing adapters from the Company, like the oil filter mount, are CNC machined from 6061billet aluminum. The CNC process guarantees precision, free-flowing passages, and a professional, enduring appearance.

Adapters from appliedspeed.com, with the use of 90-degree free-flow fittings, allow the outlets to clock properly toward the oil filter pedestal without over or under-tightening the engine adapter. 

3- The fittings: The best oil filter relocation kit contains free-flowing AN bent tube fittings void of pipe threads. Those threads are prone to leaking, and they can damage cast adapters.

The fittings from EARL'S offer maximum flow and adaptability. Their push-on design makes for easy permanent installation.

4- The adapters and O-rings must meet the rigors of modern engine power and RPM, such as racing and towing. The filter relocation hose and Orings must meet modern engines' high pressures and temperatures.

The adapters from APPLIEDSPEED.com are available with Viton O-rings for long life and leak-free experience, and they are 5/8-inch in diameter to provide full-flow capacity.

5- The hose: APPLIEDSPEED.com hose AS876010 is rated to 250 PSI and 350 degrees F. Furthermore, the hose supplied is 6-feet long to configure to any adaptation.
