Default Compatible oil cooler/filter relocation

I want to add an oil cooler for my 98 2.5l Legacy now that I have a bumper with a huge center cutout and no intercooler (NA power for the win!). I have a big head exchanger and can get the hoses from Amazon hose across town, but I want to come up with a sandwich plate that will fit the Subaru oil filter (PH3593A). Tooling through JCW, I came across this:

That ought to work, but I'd like to find a complete kit that works on a Ford or Chevy truck or something. I remember vaguely that some Dodge oil filters fit on Subaru and that certian Fords up to 95 will also work. Anybody have any info on this?

If I wind up doing it DIY style, I'll post a how-to on scoobymods or SL-i

Here is the type of oil cooler I plan on using (not this exact one, but same style):

It's off a 2nd Generation RX-7 and stands about 18" long, 5" high and 2" thick with both inlet and outlet on the same end.

Judging form the lack of response, I assume that most people use OEM Subaru or FAL oil cooler kits. Looks like I'm going DIY style, but only after I can finish my S14 to J30 VLSD swap and ITBs (both of which are in progress).

i recently made a decision on cooling the oil on my NA 2.5 and instead of the extra radiator i'm using the oil/water cooler from a WRX and using a WRX water pump as it has the extra coolant output cast into it

the main reason i went this route was that i didn't want to be dealing with draining the cooler everytime i do an oil change

as a bonus, it will fit and look stock, and help bring the oil up to temperature faster.
