Can someone point me to a good remote oil filter setup for a 5.8. Mine doesn't use the factory oil cooler if that makes a difference. I'm tired of ALWAYS making a mess when changing the filter.

Thanks

most kits work fine but you may need longer hoses depending where you want to mount it. jsut make sure you have in and out correct. years ago i got a kit for my old 96 that had in and out labeled backwards. took me awhile of running no oil pressure before i realized the issue. engine didnt like it very much

on my current 96 i had a few hydrualic hoses and relocated it on the pasenger side front frame rail. makes it very easy to change and its pretty well protected. added a air cooler in fornt of radiator

Look up “form-a funnel”. I push it under the oil filter and put a pan under the end and loosen the oil filter. I started using it on a Miata which is impossible to not make a mess and it works out well. Using it on the Bronco now.

Thanks all, I appreciate the sugestions. Pics were real helpful Kingfish. How much more oil did that setup add, 1/2 quart? I also like the funnel idea as well. I did try that with an old metal funnel with a flexible hose but it was a pain. I may look into building something like you suggested.

Thanks

Scott -

How much oil did this setup add to your normal oil change?

I haven't installed the remote filter yet, waiting until next oil change.
