Default Oil Feed for 99??? hmmmm

Ok, i've long since known where the feed for a older 1.8 is, but im having an issue here. My block is not a original 99, its a 96. Dunno if that is any problem.

But rather then digging down by the sender for oil supply, i was thinking of using a sandwich plate.... but, i have a oil filter relocation kit. So could i put a sandwich plate on the relocated oil filter? it would make oil feed a nice straight and easy shot over to the turbo. BTW, the filter is relocated to the pass. side firewall.

I would take the oil filter relocation flange adapter and drill a hole in the side then tap it 1/8" NPT. Drill and tap shouldn't be more than $10.
Or you can get the BSP adapter from stealthmode.

I used a tee on my oil pressure sending unit, but you should be able to use your filter relocation provided there's a place to tap into for the turbo oil feed line.

im having fun trying to figure out what the thread size is for our filters. Found a sandwich plate + feed line w/90* fitting for a good price, and it lists off the thread pitch for the filter... but i dunno what size the Miata is. On a side note, it seems at least the Mitsu 4G63 uses the same thread...

Eh, i just might tap the base of the relocator.. lol

alrighty, so i think i have my oil feed stuff taken care of now. Got that sandwich adapter and pressure line w/

1. T6 Aluminum oil feed flange

2. Gasket

3. 2 X Washers

4. - 4 AN bolt

5. 40" long stainless steel braided line with 2 * -4AN fitting

6. -1/8" Adapter NPT male fitting that goes to the block



Sound good? I know i still need to get the drain line, exhaust gasket and drain fittings.

I want that kit in the picture, where did you get it from??? Oil supply line is one of the few things I'm still missing before I can start my install and this would be PERFECT!!!

Namely, just the feed line and tee with fittings for the block and supply.
