It looks real nice, but, looks aint everything. I had to use a remote filter system on my 460, because of header and shock tower clearance problems. I had an oil pressure problem. Couldn't get much oil to the front rockers on number 1 and 5, I took the remote filter system off, and installed a Motorsport 45 degree filter adpter. Now, my oil pressure is back to 50 lbs. at idle, and better have the valve covers on before you start motor, or be ready to clean up the mess....
No more remote filters for me, no matter how great they look......
Hmmm, maybe I'm just thick headed but I can't see the logic in this. What I assume are the supply and return tubes for an oil cooler both come from an equil pressure source and would have no flow. Also, how the heck are you supposed to change the filters, pull the lines off everytime?
I can't make heads nor tails out of it.
