On the 5.4 van and some pickups they have a oil filther adpter that puts the oil filther at the rear of the motor. Is it possiable to use on a 4.6 since our oil filther is so hard to change? It would make is so much easier to change.

I tried using the stock mounted directly to the 4.6L water/ oil outlet casting and 5.4L oil-cooler on my 5.4L and it did not fit. The motor is wide and there was not enough room.

I think it can be done with some creative coolant tubing and a Trans-dapt spin on adapter. But the special hose that has the connections to the oil cooler was cut up in the first go around when I tried to use it mounted directly to the 4.6L water/ oil outlet casting and I never bothered to try again.

If you do try it I recommend to use the trans-dapt and if you succeed please give me a parts list.
