Improved Racing's Ford Modular V8 remote oil filter adapter allows you to relocate your oil filter to a more practical location (most commonly the front bumper) as well as accommodating the optional addition of oil cooler.
This bolt-on adapter replaces the factory oil filter and water inlet manifold. It has two 1/4" NPT ports for sensors or oil line feeds. The engine oil ports are -10AN O-ring boss ports while the water port is a -16AN O-ring boss port. Factory radiator hoses of 1.5" and 1.75" are supported, as well as the option to use a -16AN adapter fitting for the engine's water inlet. Oil line adapters are available for -8AN, -10AN, and -12AN lines.
This adapter will fit any Ford Modular V8, however applications with a curved water neck on the factory manifold, such as the SN95 1996-2004 Ford Mustang GT, require Improved Racing's EFR-800 radiator hose. When selecting this optional radiator hose, you must also select the 1.75" hose barb adapter in the drop down. These two options make this filter relocation adapter a completely bolt on solution for the SN95 1996-2004 Mustang GT. Applications with a straight water neck on the factory manifold may reuse the factory radiator hose with minimal or no trimming required.
