MM's Oil Filter Relocation Kit moves the oil filter from the stock location on the engine block to behind the front bumper. We designed it to use the large filters that are standard on Ford pushrod small-block engines.
Why move the oil filter?
Ford modular engines with factory oil coolers, such as the Cobra 4-valve, locate the stock oil filter in a position where it interferes with the MM K-member. Rather than compromising the entire front suspension structure just to accommodate the stock filter location, we designed the OC-3 and OC-4 kits to relocate the oil filter. Problem solved.
This kit is required when installing a Maximum Motorsports K-member on a 1996-1998 Mustang equipped with a modular engine and an OEM oil cooler (all 4.6L-based 4V Cobra engines, some 2V GT engines).
And another big bonus: Less mess!
This kit eliminates the hard-to-reach stock filter that always drips on your steering rack and K-member during oil changes. You can now easily access the new filter location from underneath the car, since it's in front of the fender liner and behind the front bumper. We've cleverly oriented the filter vertically to eliminate oil drain-back and the resulting annoying drippiness during filter changes.
This top-quality kit includes a billet aluminum engine adapter, billet aluminum remote filter mount, -10 AN hose ends, hose, commonly available large-capacity 302 Ford filter, all necessary mounting hardware, and detailed instructions with illustrations.What's the difference?
