oil filter relocation kit

I am looking for an oil filter relocation kit - just finished installing power steering on my zuk (turning 32s sucks with the manual steering box) and now the steering shaft u-joint (new piece that replaces stock rag joint) comes way too close to my oil filter. I would like to relocate my oil filter but I am not sure which one to get, what size, etc.

Here is a couple that I found at www.summitracing.com

oil filter relocation kit # 1

oil filter relocation kit # 2

oil filter relocation kit # 3

Maybe I should upgrade to a dual filter system?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.....TIA

Pug, check out the Amsoil site. I'm sure they have a filter relocation setup. Only down side is that they are pretty pricey.....

Re: oil filter relocation kit

I know you'll need the Ford sized threads (3/4 x 16) otherwise it's a case of which colour do you like?

But I have a question along this line. If I have a sandwich adaptor can I run a remote filter as well as the one one the sandwich adaptor and in line with the cooler ?

Some of the remote kits have a mount with left and right outlets and supply plugs for the unwanted outlets.
So, will the remote work with a cooler on the opposite Inlet and out let to the one feeding the remote filter itself.
Wow, can y'all understand this?

Sorry to jump in here Pug, just seemed to be the right time to find out.

Re: oil filter relocation kit

I am using the CALMINI kit which is made very well (they even made me a custom billet aluminum pulley for my 94 EFI setup - 5 bolt, one side v-belt/other side serp.) - but the u-joint that replaces the factory rag joint is really long and it sits right next to my oil filter (so close it has made contact). I am going to have to relocate my oil filter or use a different u-joint setup without the double connection (I will post pics when I get a chance so you can see exactly what I am talking about).

Maybe you can see how long it is in the picture below (from CALMINI's site):

Re: oil filter relocation kit

I can't believe this is not talked about daily. I had the same problem. When I mashed the go pedal, the steering locked up! I just looked for a brand that had a shorter filter. I think STP is what I use now.

Re: oil filter relocation kit

The clearance issue on the CALMINI system is b/c it bolts to the steeering shaft AND it bolts to the splined shaft off of the Track/Kick box whereas the other vendors replace the splined connection on the steering box and that connects directly to the steering shaft - see the pic of Trail Tough's p/s setup to see what I mean:



If you look at the picture posted by GA ZUKI the CALMINI u-joint connects between his two connections and pushes everything right next to the oil filter
