    Remote Oil Filter

    I want to run a much larger oil filter, even the filter on my 4 banger ranger is 2-3 times as big as ours. It seems as if the best way is going to be a remote setup.

    No, I don't want canton or some other thing like that. I just want a remote setup that takes a giant domestic filter of some type.

    Who makes a remote filter mount that will fit our setup?

    Looks like there may be some options here:

    This looks like my best bet so far:

    FYI: Here are filters that fit that trans dapt remote kite:

    They dwarf the stock filter

    I'd use the Purolator L30001 or the Wix 51515

    Not sure if you have seen this thread. I really don't think it has the info you want but it's on the subject.

    yeah I read that earlier, there isn't a lot of room for a larger filter in the oem location. I want something BIG and domestic so replacements are cheap and available at the parts store. No sense in having to mail order oil filters IMHO.

    A larger filte makes sense as long as the flow rate is the same or better than stock. However Mit have been using the same Z79A filter on all V6s for years and not had issues. As long as you change it often enough I think it's fine. Also if your 4 banger ranger is diesel it will always have a larger filter. However as long as it's done right it can't hurt anything.

    Good thread...I've been thinking about this also.
    I think the missing link is an adapter for the original oil filter location...which shouldnt be too hard to find.
    Edit - looks like your first link might have it.
    I like the WIX also...

    I also think the driver's side is the most logical position, but would most likely require cruise delete at a minumum (which is fine for alot of us, lol)

    You can put something behind the driver smic. My oil filter is there now and there is plenty of room. Bad pic that is also in above thread:


    I was thinking something similar. I know I use these motorcraft fl-820s filters on my 5.4L truck and they seem like a larger, good quality, low-priced, and widely available filter. I may look for a remote adapter and swap it in.

    mitsu has plenty of issues with keeping the oil clean IMHO. The ranger is a 2.5 liter gas engine and has 2-3 times as much filter.

    Matt at DR runs a similar setup on his 8 second car.

    Yeah, I am one that cannot do without cruise. I'm going to order the kit soon and try to find a location that is easy to get to, doesn't spill oil over everything when changing, and doesn't require deleting anything.

    Yeah that's the location I would use. Nice setup, where did you get the parts and is it a stock filter?
