hey all, the first post has been updated, check it out, let me know what you think...

pardon the typos or weird grammer issues, it's late and i'm tired...

also, we ask that you guys try and stick as close to the packages as possible... we can do a la carte, but we have to buy a certain amount of AN fittings, line, etc etc etc... to try and keep prices down....

so we don't want to run short, and or end up with excess....

For some reason I feel as if I was on date. Everything is going good, and it looks like Im getting laid afterwards, and after all she declines.


OP just give us a price so that we dont end up blue-balled.

LOL I like the analogy... I have a meeting Monday and I should have the prices and lots of pictures... These kits/parts are much more involved than brake lines... And I have a lot of cash personally invested in this! So bare with me please...

Just be patient. You may be better off just waiting for the call to save gas and time. Getting things done at a good price is always gonna be a sacrifice in time. I think that is the attractive element of your GB, so for ppl who can't wait, there is always regular price stuff out there.

Stupid question... what's the point of the oil filter relocation? Seems like a lot of added complexity and weight to make oil changes easier. Not to mention failure points to losing the lifeblood of your engine.

sadly, i have the inferior one piece designed brake lines, and the advanced line in my car... lets just put it this way... i bought a lot of stuff for my car, and wish they were better designed... lol... and thus, our group buys were born... so call me insane, but no, i do not have fancy ss lines on my car... lol...

that's a matter of opinion... there is basically two ways to do this...
1. make a sandwich adaptor, that will allow for you to route lines to and from an oil cooler...
2. have a relocation of the oil filter, and for us, it would be easier for us to design 1 block piece, instead of 2 block pieces...

we are trying to bring this to you guys for less... for us to have to design and machine more than one design will be too pricey... so when i get the pictures, and the prices, everyone will get to decide for themselves whether it is something they want or not...

there are so many different parts and components to this group buy, that i don't want to start haphazardly throwing numbers out there...

we know that we are going to be competitive with the units out there already... so that should give you a rough idea... other than that... i want to be patient and post up when i have everything....

Im just wondering on these reusable filters, I use them all day long on heavy equipment, as a primary screen but always a disposable filter further down the line. What micron do these filters filter to?
