Has anyone changed the setup to an inline filter in a different location yet? Im not exactly sure where to look for the fitting with the screen in it? and am curious to know where it is and how hard it would be to change the setup from current to the new one.

I'm contemplating getting rid of the filter all together. I'd rather have some small particles get through then no oil at all...

I just did a search and found this:

Stainless steel oil feed line. This is a setup for the Garrett GT Center sections and pulls oil from the head because Garrett CHRA's only prefer 50-60 pounds of oil pressure. The filter is a secondary device that helps filter the oil

This filter works great but it must be checked with EVERY OIL CHANGE because the filter could become over clogged if you never check the filter element, it makes sense that you change your engine oil filter with every change so make sure you examine the filter as well!

And from the UK we got this.

These in-line pre-filters have a 25 micron stainless steel gauze filter which stops debris from entering the delicate internals of your turbo, greatly reducing bearing wear. Suitable for fitment to Garrett T3, T3.5 or T4 turbos with 1/8" BSP fittings. Popular fitments; Cosworth range, Escort, RS Turbo etc..Polished silver.

-4an is aprox 6mm and -6an is 10mm so the -6an filter with the -6an to 3/8 adaptors would probably work well. You could cut the supply like and install this on the front of the engine where the oil feed line

runs across the timing cover. In sure it would be very easy to rig up some sort of mount and clamp setup to support the filter. It would be very easu to access and service if it was mounted there.

Thanks mate

appreciate it. hopefully its straight forward enough, its hard to no whether to go an external style or just get a new inline filter.

Have you done your F6 yet?

I guess there will always be small particles of impurities in the engine oil, but I doubt it would be sufficient to damage the bearing in the turbo, and a slightly noisy bearing is better than a total failure because the screen gets plugged.

The problem is that the screen is way too small, and located in an area where servicing is really difficult, so an alternative filter would be a good insurance measure, though not an absolute necessity.

I know it's been a long time, BUT I finally got the bits and pieces together, and the new inline oil screen is now sifting my oil on its way to the turbo.

Pretty neat setup I thought :greyscare:post-264-1207924668_thumb.jpg
