View Full Version : Oil Filter Sandwich Adapter

06-25-2002, 03:13 AM
I just aquired myself a nifty little oil cooler. I was curious about some of the sandwich adapters out there. Do those things divert 100% of oil flow to the cooler before (or after) it reaches the filter or only like 50%? I'm curious because I don't want this oil cooler being a restriction in my oiling system. The lines that come with it look decent sized buy i'm not sure about how well the core itself actually flows.

you can use a sandwhich or a bypass adapters.get the ford one; 3/4-16 thread. and the holes on the adapters are usually 1/2 npt.

yes they divert 100% you can splice it tho, its said that the oil cooler is only really necessary if you do prolonged track laps, like endurance

Hey Alex,

What would be an example of setting it up wrong?

The B&M oil filter relocation kit has fittings for an oil cooler. They also have a "thermostat" that diverts only 5% of the oil to the cooler when the engine is cold, and 95% of the oil when the oil is past 170 degrees farenheit, almost like a regular thermostat.

Oil coolers won't become a restriction in your system unless you set it up wrong.
