Default Oil feed sandwich plate - suggestions

After searching for a while, I'm going to go for the oil filter location as a feed line. Looking for pass-through plates was quite a bit more difficult than finding the standard oil-cooler reroute plate, so I finally happened across this one..

Oil Filter Sender Adapter - 20mm 1.5 Thread

Does anyone see any problems with this? Plan is to use this, a 1/8NPT to -3AN fitting, a -3AN line, -3AN to (whatever thread pitch the turbo is, already have the adapter) fitting, strait to my little MSM turbo.

TIA

Will that fit a 1.6L NA?

I'm essentially using the same one in my setup, except it's made by prosport:
Oil filter adaptor plate-Sandwich adaptor Plate -Prosport Gauges

I have it on my 1.8, but I had trouble using it on my 1.6 as the spigot the oil filter threads on was too long. I ended up taking it out of the block and shortening it.

I guess I don't understand why you don't use something simple like this

stealthmode//performance

or this

stealthmode//performance

Hard to beat $20 shipped or $42 shipped with the -3an line. Dropdown menu to pick your turbo.

I love you stein. Amusingly, I already have an oil solution for that port, but it's huge and is made up of a bunch of fittings that turn the pressure sender 90*, making me wary about stress on that little port. This looks like a perfect solution!

?'s

How long is the feed line, and is it long enough to reach?
I'm using the OEM MSM turbo, and I have a -3AN fitting attached to the feed port on said turbo. So I really just need a -3AN end to that line.

I looked and didn't see a length. You might want to call them. From the oil pressure sender port to the turbo I needed about 44" if I tied it back to the brake booster vac line. I just bought that fitting in the first link because I bought a 48" line off the classifieds. That said, I had to then chase down the missing turbo fitting so it is a good deal to just get the kit that fits your turbo if the line is long enough. It may only be 36", as Stealthmode deals in a lot of Hondas. Call or email them. They are good to deal with. If you need a turbo drain, they sell the Tuner Toys drain. I bought that from them as well.

That fitting has two outputs in addition to the end that accepts the stock oil pressure sender if you want to use the other port for oil pressure gauge. If not it comes with a pipe plug for the unused port.

What size do we need? M20 or 22?


edit: NM I got it, it's M20.

Could this be used for an oil cooler?

Of course, but one with a built in thermostat would be cooler:

Although you can get an inline thermostat:

I don't think a -3 would do much in the way of oil cooling. I got my plate from Summit for around $20 and it has a thermostat I run a -8 and wouldn't run anything smaller for a cooler, but he is just using it to feed the turbo so the -3 should work I would think.

Thanks on the point-out on this. It has been added to my list of must-haves. I have a 25row cooler w/no thermostat, this is perfect, although pricey. Just stay away from the plate I bought... POS sandwich plate
