Well, I remember now how much I hate where the stock filter is. :mad:
I had put a relocate kit together about 4 yrs ago, and I when I did, I decided to use rubber hoses to save $$$$. Uh huh.... It was fine up until about, oh, a week ago. I noticed some oil spotting on the pavement when I pulled into my paking space. Looked under the car, and found the whole lower K-member covered with a light coating of oil.
Apparently, the hoses have stiffened up, stretched, shrunk... I don't know... But it was leaking. Decided to bite the bullet and go with braided line and AN fittings.
Got home tonight, and pulled the filter ends EZ(it's under/inside the bumper).
Then I tried to remove the engine end. :mad: yup... Wound up pulling the whole freaking spin-on adapter off just to get the hoses off. Put the AN fittings on, and put it back in. Got one hose on, an fought with the second hose for 1/2hr, until the sun went down.
It's still not on, and I'm still not double jointed.
So the car sits, sans oil, waiting for me to finish in the morning.

I swear I heard it laughing at me as I walked away from it. :D

I do have to say though, braided line and AN fittings ROCK. Stupid expensive, but still rock.

so what your trying to say peter is that this re-location kit has made your life easier? lol im jus messin.

the oil filter isnt too bad to get out if you have done it more than a couple of times. seriously if im under the car and ready i can pull off that filter in under 5 seconds. well maybe 10 if its early lol

which kit and part number did you get? from summit? or somewhere else?

Oh, yeah. WAY easier.:rolleyes:

I used Perma-Cool parts from Summit. Didn't buy the kit, just the parts 'cause I wanted the dual in/out filter plate, in case I ever wanted to put an oil cooler on.

why not just put the hose on the adapter and then put the adapter on, exactly the reverse of how you removed it.

Well, the ^#%# thing is done.
FYI#1: It DOES matter which hose goes to which port on the filter plate.
FYI#2: Filter relocate plates are NOT TTY.:rolleyes:

I'm kinda covered in oil right now, so I'm gonna go shower....
