[FONT="]I've relocated my filter to the os inner wing while fitting front mounted oil cooler and manual oil temp gauge.
It's easier to replace now but I could not fit thermostatic sandwich plate as it would not have passed oil through filter until it was up to temperature.
This configuration would not be ideal for a road car that is used for short journeys as it takes a while for the oil to reach normal operating temp.
This has been mentioned to me before.
At that time I measured up for swaged pipes, called demon tweeks to order pipes and they talked me out of it saying that these connections are very safe and do not come off.
They told me that clips were not even required.
Search here or the other site, someone had his happen in the past couple of months.DT won't give you any guarentee that this won't happen as it will be covered by the usual bullshit racing part, not for road use. I would take that conversation with a pinch of salt.
