Project Ruze The UK's first all-Japanese RX7 V8?

Oil Filter Relocation

On the stock engine the oil filter is on a cast arm about 12mm long, straight off the oil pump. That’s no good for me as it will protrude into where the steering rack is on the RX7, once you take into account the length of the oil filter as well. I found a place in the states making relocation plates, so I bought one:

 

Fitted, along with some Earls Performance 3/4NPT to -10AN fittings:

 

The plate has a 1/8NPT takeoff for oil pressure senders too – I’m having a hose made up that will allow me to fit both the RX7 sender for the dashboard gauge, and the LS400 switch for low oil pressure warning. They’ll both be concealed away on a length of hose, to keep the engine bay tidy.
