  1. The shift surround is pretty rare since many Frigiking were installed without any shift surround on the early cars Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. Are you using this filter? I was concerned seeing 93mm vs. 76mm housing diameter, but seems more readily available at a lower price. There's a couple others I've found that could work: OC 24 and OC 306 but need to comfirm with a better source on some of the dimensions
  3. No room on mine with a 3.5 inch filter height for a band style filter wrench Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. I've seen the oc11, but didn't think it was compatible with the application? How long have you been running one? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. I plan to use the s14 head to retain the sensor inputs. It looked possible to relocate just the filter keeping everything else as is. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. The reinforced drivers side subframe had to be opened up a little, probably just too thick of a reinforcement I had not tried to remove the filter, 1/4" did not look like enough, though I guess I could have tried and not assumed. I had thought there would be no way to get a new one to thread on. Definitely encouraging that the remote filter may not be necessary Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. Oil cooler ran off of s14 head as designed; spin on adapter to get the filter to a more workable location Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. Using the s14 filter head and spin on adapter was the idea at this point Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. Stock 02 location - engine mounts except drivers side mount, reinforced drivers side subframe, mahle oc 25 or oc 84 filter - 1/4 inch clearance between steering gear and filter. It did take a bit of grinding to get the engine to sit low enough from what I recall. I don't think there any way to change the engines position without a different subframe or engine mount Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. S-14 engine with S-14 filter head with after-market oil cooler. Problem: can't unscrew oil filter because steering gear is in the way. I scoured the website, and have not found much in the way of remote oil filter failures, but one last check before I make a decision: A. Should I just remove the filter head each oil change and plan on replacing the gasket (for less work right now) B. Install a remote oil filter setup (less work every oil change) I've looked for an equivalent oil filter to no avail in a 2.5" height that could be un-threaded from the oil filter head. I'm concerned with the cheap universal remote oil filter components I'm seeing and looking for trouble free reliability more than anything. I don't want to blow o-rings or have more oil leaks to contend with. I'm looking at adding a thread-on filter adapter and at the other end a Setrab remote filter head at this point. The remote filter head seems rather bulky, so I guess I need to confirm there room to bolt it somewhere near the front of the frame rail.
  11. I'll take it! Sending email asap... Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. I like both of these ideas. I pretty much put things together by the book and there wasn't time to ask many questions during the process. On a separate note, the top of the radiator is reading 104C and the bottom - from a distance - is reading 77C about the time the fan kicks in. The temp sensor at the bottom of the radiator isn't the best place for it in this case, and the thermostat needs further looking into. First guess after buying the temp gun is that the thermostat that is installed is not working and needs to be removed and tested. And while I'm at it, I guess I should test the M3 thermostat and install it.
  13. Oil cooler is by the alternator, so there may still be a way to do a bigger fan; sounds like I don't have a choice. Im going to look at some SPAL fans. I really appreciate all the input. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. The electric fan switch is located in the radiator I believe - I don't think there's room for the stock M3 t-stat and hose loop in that area with the AC compressor. The temperature spikes upon slowing down and waiting at a stoplight - so about 2 minutes or under?
