I am gauging to see if there is any interest in a replacement oil filter pedestal which will include two 1/8" NPT taps.



Made from billet aluminum, fitment is same as stock. The pedestal will have a slightly deeper oil resivoir below the filter to minimzie oil spillage when removing the old filter. The overall height of the pedestal will remain unchanged from stock.



Advantages:

-No more using a universal adaptor that rasies the oil filter which in return requires removal of components.

-Has two NTP taps for pressure and temperature.

-Minimize oil spillage when removing old filter.

-Fits same as stock!

-Looks really trick!



Here is a picture of the part.

I am still working on pricing, but the FD Version would be in the $70-90 (very rough). If there is enough interest I would be willing to start a group buy for them.

No, their's is a universal sandwich that bolts between thte stock pedestal and the oil filter. It also raisies it about 1" which makes changing it a PITA.
