    oil filter housing

    this is off the BDM S3 race car (2.0 tfsi)

    they use an adapter plate to run a 1.8t oil filter housing, like so:

    notice the port for oil pressure sensor, and plug for temp sensor.

    is this standard on these?

    im guessing not, but would this be hard to do?
    suppose i should ask them really. doh

    Hi Karl,

    The oil filter housing we have used is from A BAM 1.8T and the ports are there as standard. We havn't had to drill holes or anything like that. The sensors are motorsport sensonrs. Blue is oil temp and the silver one is oil pressure.

    The only part we have had made is the hex cap for the oil breather. That will have a thread put down the middle to take a dash 8 fitting and got to the oil catch tank.

    Hope that helps?
