Default need input on build and planning of some components.

So I'm finishing up my 1.6 build and I want to make sure I do everything right.

I wanted to run a filter relocate kit. I have 2 reasons 1 I'm stuffing this in a festiva and don't have much room to work with. The other reason for running the relocator it will make for easy access to plumbing down the road if I want to add a cooler in. The problem I'm having is the nipple coming off the block is to long. I'm not running the sandwich plate and would like to remove it so is does anyone know if there is a smaller threaded nipple I can use? Or what thread it is so I can maybe search online? Last resort I was think of chopping and reeling buy it will need to be turned on a lathe. Also is there a way I can add a thermostat to filter relocator or do they make one with a thermostat?

I just re did the oil pan to. I've never done one before I'm nervous if I did it right. I used honda-bond and let it set for about 5 minutes in my cold garage stuff was really sticky. I forgot to put it in the thread holes but I think it sandwiched into the threads when it torque down due to I can see some sealant on the end of the bolts. Thoughts?

I would just use a saw and cut the existing nipple shorter, and use a file to debur it. I did this on my car after buying a fitting online that didn't work correctly. Using the stock fitting and just cutting it shorter is best IMO.

Thanks for the input but I don't think there is enough thread. Maybe i should have a machinist tap the rod longer? Or if someone knows the thread size I can buy the tap.

I know I saw some talk about adding stainless Brilo pads to the valve cover baffles to help the oil mist condense and drain back down. Is there any recommendations on which brand pads? Did you cut the pad is strip or leave them whole?

Dont do it. After researching it, not only do you not need it, but it can make oil migration even worse. Setup the PCV properly on the pass side with the vent on the drivers side.
