My 3.8 engine has been out to make some changes and one of the is to fit a remote oil filter to make the filter change possible when fitted with CF2 manifolds

Engine has to come out to fit CF2’s and while doing so I would strongly recommend fitting a remote oil filter as it is nearly impossible to change the filter

Changed the colour of my powder coating too

The new colour combo is far better than the first incarnation IMO Ned :thumbup:

Only takes 2 hours to drop the engine out and mine has been out recently so no snapped bolts etc

Was planning on more changes, was going to fit Quaife sequential gearbox but is not going to be ready for the Ring trip next week.

Fitting much bigger ally radiator, remote oil filter, second oil cooler, lightweight thinner cooling fans, new alternator, orange jet fins with new 235 Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, lower front Eibach springs

As I had the engine out we took the heads off to inspect the internals and all is good, we have slightly changed the head gaskets we use on the 3.8 so I fitted the new version, so new water pump and cam belt while we are there

I hope your girlfriend has changed her hair colour to match. :D
She changes her hair every couple of weeks so can't change the engine powder coating to keep up :biglaugh:

Looks lovely... and further power mods planned and why havent you wrapped the manifolds
Don't think they need it

Does this mean you're going to start supplying kits Ned?
If people want them, it is an engine out job to fit though

When I fitted cf2's and fitted engine back in the car it did look like it would be a pain in future for filter change.
One for shopping list when I come to do engine out again lol.
I will worry bout filter change in few.months when it due haha

Remote oil filter looks good.

What clearance do you have from manifold to pipes? My preference would be for 60mm clearance, with an absolute minimum of 40mm.
