Customs My shoebox chop

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Stefan T, Oct 21, 2009.

  1. I guess it is tough to work on the project when the weather is nice and your other toys are begging for attention. I know the feeling.

    Thanks for liking my build

    I have cut little in the pan

    [​IMG]

    I cut the rear end of the oil pan

    [​IMG]

    Then tested i the cut pan in the car for see if have cut enough

    the pan will not be very big but the oil now is better in to not be slugde in.

    [​IMG]

    ome ide is to use a honda civic oil filter under the oil pump so the oil will completly filtrade and it will give easy piping.
    Only a pipe up to the top of the block

    Stephan, you come up with some great ideals. Will the oil pickup still be in the stock location, or is this also being changed?...Jim

    The tread for the filter is M20x1.5.

    The filter is have a size of diameter 68mm and a legth of 85mm so it is easy to fit

    The filter will be on the pressure side and it will go a pipe up to upper oil chanel.
