Default oil cooler/oil filter relocation kits, group buy?

hey all, I don't have the numbers just yet, but this is what I have in the works...

oil filter relocation kits,
and
oil cooler kits.


as for numbers, i will need about 15 guys to get in on this... (this is because we have to order the billet pieces in bulk)


updated info 9/17/09:

a couple of things
1. all block housings will be in black billet
2. you will have your choice of color (red blue, and black)
.....please pick one color for all of the following, else it will be a logistical nightmare
.....a. billet filter housing
.....b. push lock AN fittings for the lines
^^(obviously, if the package you get does not contain all of the above, the parts that you do get will be the color of your choice... just in case that isn't clear...)
**filter housing adaptor, and block housing adaptor will now be black**
3. all reusable oil filters will be black billet
4. all oil coolers will come with steel adaptors, (since the oil cooler itself is steel, using the steel adapters is safer than using aluminum pieces, very easy to **** up an oil cooler if you using aluminum adapters)
5. oil filter housing bracket will be polished, the backing plate will not
6. all oil filter housing whether billet or cast will come with aluminum bracket, backing plate, and mounting hardware.

Default pictures of oil filter housing

ok, so check out the picts, again these will be available in black, red, and blue.

if you notice, there will be an aluminum bracket that will mount to the fire wall that will allow you to point the inlet and outlet forward, this negates the need for 90 degree an fitting, and will be a cleaner install. Also, because the fire wall is thin, we are going to include an additional backing plate,
(as we all learned in phsyics, distribution of the stress on an item over a larger surface area will allow for less stress in one particular point... in other words, i don't want all of you coming back saying that your fire wall is ripping... lol...)

as in the last group buy, all necessary hardware will be included... as for instruction on installation... i'm lazy, and will be posting a how to directly in this thread....

let me know if you guys are interested in this...

I might be in depending on price too. Although I should probably save for a new engine first.

Might be interested if this is not another overdesigned, over-the-top engineered, space age meterial, that takes years to market and costs a Caddilac.

Had to vent...

Very interested... really more interested in just a cooler kit... leave the filter on the block... add adapter, and lines for a kit.

(you prob will have to go spec lengths for your cooler lines, or you will be giving away lots of extra cause i would for sure OVER ORDER to make sure my lengths are covered.)

+1 on both of the above


A big seller would be an adapter plate (filter stays on block) with a temp sensor fitting, and lines to an oil cooler setup.

This would keep costs down those of us that don't care about filter relocation.

^ I agree. I'd be more likely to run the cooler and leave the filter on the block, any provisions for temp sensor would just be a huge plus.
