I need to remove it and see how it fits. It'* off a w body so I think it should fit. Same engine, just need to check clearance.

The OFA should not fit because of where our frame is located.

What is the desire to put it on Kevin? If you want oil filter cooler lines, hit up any S1 L67 car and pull off the add on piece for the oil lines.

I swapped my 97 to the 00+ pan to get the filter away from the subframe. I always disliked how the filter adapter spewed on the frame and had to be cleaned up.

No desire here Boosty! I think Steve wants it....mainly cause he'* a hoarder and has no intended desire or use for it. I understand he collects sheep also.

He'd probably pull the heads off, attach a large battery, and make it a paint can shaker ala Radomir!

Steve are you on crack, there'* nothing in the way of the filter on your car.

OFA off a W body is going to be a tough fit with the 00+ engine mount and the PS pump spacer.

Bring the car down though. There'* a few parts here that you can look over and try to figure out if they'd fit or not. If they do, then you can buy some stuff from Danno.
