  • oil filter relocation

    after having to unscrew a ridiculously tightened on oil filter, and replacing the gasket under the housing, I really want to relocate my oil filter to an easier to access position. I want to get and Alpha-N system and CF airbox down the road, so pulling out the airbox for a while will not be an option.

    I did a lot of searching and came up with next to nothing on this forum about relocating the oil filter with a kit. my friend putting an s14 into a 2002 was saying there was a block you could bolt up to where the oil filter housing used to be which would let you run lines to a filter adapter somewhere else under the hood. there are a ton of spin on oil adapters out there but I haven't seen anything yet that bolt up to the block that lets me run an oil line in and out.

    I've seen it done on a race prepped e30 m3 at bimmerfest but I forgot who's it was.



    any information would be helpful

    I have the list of parts when I did mine. I am an Aeroquip dealer now so this helped and maybe I can help you guys with sourcing some of these items. Pretty busy right now with a huge show this weekend and general stuff but will try to do a write up. I also did the M5 cooler and lines, and brake resevior. No power steering so did not worry about that!!!



    Thanks,

      Here is a write up on the filter mounts and Oil cooler!!


      M5 Oil cooler parts Originally Written up by HANS

      (1) M5 Cooler Buy it from DON
      Aeroquip I will check to see if I can get any better $$ then Summit, HPR or RPW
      (10) FCA 1010 10ft AN10 Hose; only need around 8 but it comes in a 10” length
      (1) FCM 4074 30 Deg. Hose Ends
      (1) FCM 4034 90 Deg. Hose Ends
      (1) FCM 4044 120 Deg. Hose Ends
      (1) FCM 4054 150 Deg. Hose Ends
      (2) FCM 2245 An10 to 18x1.5 Adaptors to mate to the old stock in/out
      (2) 7007-10-M22 ORME Bros. Toll free (877) ORME BRS These guys have them!!

      I used a hose clamp and 10MM bolt at the Bottom of the Oil cooler for a little extra support there is a factory tab located on the Oil Cooler for this.


      Remote Filter Mount
      (1) Sandwich Adaptor to mate to stock filter location. I used an earl’s EAR-1178ERL From Summit Racing However the rubber gasket sucks and I got a BMW filter gasket.
      Aeroquip I will check to see if I can get any better $$ then Summit, HPR or RPW
      (6) FCA 1006 6ft AN10 Hose
      (2) FCM 4044 120 Deg. Hose Ends
      (2) FCM 1014 Straight Hose Ends
      (4) FBM 2009 ½” NPT to AN10 for the Earl’s Adaptor and remote mount.
      (1) Remote filter Mount I used an earl’s EAR-2178ERL From Summit Racing


      Some tips I learned and other members helped me with. I would highly recommend the Aeroquip Vise attachment; I bough a wall mount vise and set it at working level. Make sure you buy wrenches. I put the hoses together using WD40 and the vise and it was fairly easy. Cutting the hose is best by using a diamond plate chop saw and wrapping the hose in black electrical tape. I actually used a linemen cutter to cut mine but the cutters cost more then a cheap saw and blade. I then build a Stainless holder for the Remote mount, Sensor and brake res. This is mounted at factory points so no extra holes where cut...


      Coming soon Fuel rail, FPR and Groupe A FPR mount all with Aeroquip.

      Hope all this helps,

      Thanks,

        searching just re-locating found this about 12 threads down, seams to be all the info you need.

        http://www.s14.net/forums/showthread...ght=relocating

        in case you don't read the above link. i bought a re-location kit from summit racing for $35 and had no problems with it.

        I did it becuase i was tired of taking the aibox off to remove the oil filter.

        here is a picture

          interesting. so is everybody using an adapter that screws into the housing just like the original filter did, but then it lets you run lines from there?

          the relocation kit that Korman makes for the M10 looks like this



          is it worth running double filters. for a few dollars more Pegasus sells this: http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pro....asp?RecId=147

            I would say two filters would be over kill as well as space being an issue. The Korman Peice looks like it bolt directly to the block??

              Thanks for the details Audio4u. I'm going to tackle this when I get back from the honeymoon (also looking at picking up a 4door e36 m3 to replace my current daily driver). Since you took the time to list all the parts, maybe I'll do up a diagram on how they all go together with some pictures.

              I also started to quote some things and all of the Aeroquip hose/hose ends, Aeroquip vise jaw insert tool and adapters from Summit and it came to ~$435 without shipping and without the E28 M5 oil cooler (~$250), an oil filter ($5?), the BMW gasket referenced above (p/n?) and the two parts (7007-10-M22) from ORME.

              Is it possible to get a shot of the old location of the oil filter? I guess I don't completely understand what gets removed from this:

                Yikes, $435?? Wow.

                Eric's $35 kit from Summit is looking quite attractive compared to that! The only questionable thing about the Summit kit were the rubber lines and hose clamps. I'd prefer threaded proper connections. But not at $435.

                  Maybe it was misleading. That was for both projects (oil filter relocation and E28 M5 oil cooler).

                  Here they are separate (I've got a huge spreadsheet of all the parts I plan on ordering, this is just one sheet. :( )

                    the Korman piece would replace part# 3 in the diagram above. then you run lines to your filter and a cooler if you want.

                    I thought maybe somebody made this for our cars too. I guess not.

                    400+ seems pretty steap. its those aeroquip fitting that make it so expensive. anyway we can get those for cheap? what is the markup that dealers put on those things? (if its anything like monster cable then its in the 100's of percents). I might be able to get them wholesale, just have to check with my friend.

                      Remember that if you run a cooler with no oil thermostat you will need to tape up the vent.

                        The set up is not cheap however stock oil cooler lines from the dealer are around 180.00 a peice IIRC. I did all this since I was in there and upgrading everything anyway. I have access to Aeroquip parts however some of trhe summit prices are below what I pay and some are way more. I could price out all the fittings if there was interest. I could save a 40+ dollars over the summit price.

                        Also I think the ORME parts where 21.00 dollars or close to that.

                          Looking at that part from Korman it does not appear to have any cooler lines out. Am I wrong here? If it does I would be swapping one in.

                              yeah my friend with it was saying you'd have to run your own from there. there are filter holders that have 2 in and 2 outputs. so that the oil can continue on to a cooler.
