Thumbs up Oil cooler kit

Just received and installed my B&M Oil cooler kit

the kit is $170 from Summit racing and got to my door in 2 days with regular shipping.

Everything is included in the kit, adapters, fittings, hoses, etc...

all the parts are quality parts with a very decent finish for the price.

i installed the core in the passenger side fender, behind the fog lights, it is a very simple mod.

I don't have a digicam so no pics for now, but i will post some next time i take my front bumper off (soon) when i add a fan in there.

Thumbs up for this universal kit for any subaru, much more affordable than the Sti

i can't get my hand on the darn invoice for the part number.

it uses an adaptor for the original filter position and a relocation kit for a new filter.

i am having a few problems with my install right now.

i have yet found the time to look at it. but i'll post the results as soon as it is done.

I've been looking at a Canton Mecca (sp?) external oil canister + oil cooler + thermostatic valve setup. The valve is necessary so as not to circulate (cool) the oil while it's trying to warm up. If you don't have this vavle, you should get it:

http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/mocal.htm

What I'm stuck on is the adaptor that fits into where the OEM oil filter goes into. There seems to be potential for inerference with the exhaust manifold, and I'm just wondering if B&M sells a suitable adaptor?

I think a oil pressure gauge mounted somewhere in the circulation system is worth it as potential leak points on the oil system is drastically increased.

Canton Mecca website is www.cmfilters.com

There is high potential for exhaust manifold interference. I have been talking to a few people about their setups, in order to use a sandwich adapter like the mocal, you need to leave the stock water-to-oil heat exchanger in place. So that means you're putting your filter even lower and more exposed. Relocating the filter would be a good move, also steel braided lines and insulation for the heat from the exhaust.
