Default Remote Oil Filter Help

Does anyone have an idea where I can find a good quality filter relocation kit for my B20. I'd like to move the filter away from my header while at the same time making the filter more accessible.Any help would be appreciated.

This kit has everything I needed for a b230FT. Not as nice looking as that other thread, but it gets the job done for cheap. With this kit I was able to use the remaining Volvo filters I had as well as use bigger Ford filters as they use the same thread.

Hose is long enough to put the filter almost anywhere.

That looks great, just what I need and nothing I don't. At that price I could afford some 90 degree fittings and nicer lines as well.

That's probably the kit I used years ago originally when I put my filter behind the front bumper. I don't remember if 8 feet was enough hose, but that will be close if you want to mount the filter in the same place.

Yes. Ford uses 3/4-16 thread on the oil filter. Same as Volvo redblock.

The Summit kit has an adapter that allows it to fit several different threads on the engine, but it only fits 3/4-16 for the filter. You can order bigger Ford filters or use up your stock of Volvo filters.

Maybe mount on the inside of the frame near the front. Spend the money for crimped on swivel fittings instead of hose clamps.

I found a decent generic relocation kit through NAPA. It did need a little clean up around the threads but I like the orientation of the outlet/inlet ports. It did not come with hose, but I will most likely upgrade the fittings and hose as suggested. Since I'm relocating the battery to the rear of the car I think I will use the battery tray compartment to house the filter as it will be the most accessible and safe area available to me, also the shortest distance for house routing.
