Much, much more! However, I do not believe they changed the block cast to accommodate a different filter housing, so yes the Alfa one will fit. However, if I were you, and it is something I have in hand at the moment, I would replace the existing filter housing/cooler module with a larger filter element - mine is from a BMW V12. It is of paramount importance to keep oil pressure up with these engines and the original Alfa one is both too small and very restrictive, so changing the filter at 4.000 mile intervals is; imo, essential.Hi.
I know Roman in Sweden has done this with an LLT, but they are hard to come by at the moment. I have sourced a 2015 LFX from a Camaro, but the oil filter fitting is way wrong: It points upwards and the Alfa 3.2 points downwards.
Can anyone tell me it I can just swap the oil filter "base" and the rest will be ok?
I know that I need the Alfa heads and the sump, but is is more to it?
(I will also use the reinforced timing chain kit from Mace engineering)
Any help would be great!
Progressive blocking of the existing filter element causes the Oil Pump Pressure Regulating Valve to open earlier, causing a reduction in working pressure at the extremities of the lubrication system - namely the rear bank and the lower timing chain and rear bank upper timing chain tensioner.
P.s., they haven't redesigned the engine although they have corrected some omissions, but substantially left the issues of the 3.2 JTS, unaddressed.
