Yeah it's a hair bigger that's why I'd only run the tap in a couple of turns and then let the plug do the rest of the thread cutting. Perhaps a standard or metric bolt tap could be used and then just put a bolt in the hole?

Could someone post some installation pics?




Well I took a few pics but all sucked except for this one. I only ended up getting it roughly mounted tonight, it has to come off so I can POR15 all the edges of the metal I cut away. Not sure if any of the AC components would be in the way to mount it here but you would need to have ABS eliminated for sure. I will be doing the lines tomorrow hopefully. They are going to be very short and will tuck behind the inner wheel well just barely. I will take some pics of them. Some may ask why I didn't mount it up front, well in short I didn't want to. There was an empty void where it's now mounted, the lines will be short, I can easily duct a nice air feed from the vacant fog light hole, and it's just where I wanted it.

Here some more pics. Lines done. Also a Pic comparing a stock 90 oil cooler to the B&M Unit.





I por15'ed the bare metal where I cut and cleaned up the cuts you see with die grinder. It gets mounted permanently tomorrow when the paints dry. Though it will look more or less the same.

Yeah, it's fairly large. Which is why I am not Uber concerned about it being directly in the path of air. Although I am still gonna run a tube from the fog light hole right to the front of it.

That'd be the same one I've got. Made it through 2 days of lapping last week and the car still runs.

Part number for 1990 oil filter housing? Guess I should start stockpiling all these parts...

Not the greatest picture, but you can see one end of it on the passenger side partially behind the intercooler.

What was used to port the relief valve in the housing? My Dremel bits keep getting gunked up with metal and don't cut very well. I don't want to use the carbide burr on my die grinder because the bit hops around and will scar the mating surfaces like on my other one; the head is too big to start making the hole bigger. What can I use that will fit the Dremel but won't get smooth (caked) with metal after some use?

Try spraying the bit with WD40. It is supposed to help keep the bit clean.

Thanks for the suggestion.

However I'm currently trying to use those Dremel attachments that appear to be made of some kind of stone. They feel like sandpaper and are cylindrical in shape with a pointed end. Should I be using something else? I can't control the carbide bit as well because it's too big to start the hole and hops around by itself. I'd rather not fuxor up my two carbide bits b/c they're very expensive, or another filter housing.

I put my housing in a vise and used my air powered grinder with a Carbide bit. I had the same problem with it jumping around but I made it work. My bit didn't get clogged up at all. Having the pressure real high in the tank helped also. It made it less likely to bind up and jump around. For the few tiny scratches I made on the sealing sureface I put RTV on. It's not leaked a drop.

My setup looks like an operating table right now. Everything is taped up so that only the hole and surrounding material is exposed. I'm not taking the risk of another mystery leak. Hell, this may not even be the problem, but I've looking into everything else and think of anything else it could be.

My die grinder is electric, so I can't mess with the speed or kickback nature of it. I'll see what I can find at Home Depot Racing and Lowes for the Dremel. Maybe a big drill bit would work, but then I'd be worried about messing up the opposite side of the valve sleeve.

No. But thanks for the suggestion I get to buy more gadgets by doing all the work myself. And I'd have no idea where to start looking in my neck of the woods for a "porting person" with the appropriate tools to do the job. This will only take 5 minutes once I get the correct attachments. I'm off to Lowes up here in Woburn now...

I ordered a carbide bit from Summit Racing. It may not be as good as the high dollar Snap On ones but it gets the job done for me. You really should invest in a compressor (even a small one) and a die grinder for this sort of work. BTW the WD40 trick is the best but works more for porting aluminum than steel/iron.

I just get carbides from swap meets. I have used a bunch of them now and for $4 each you can not beat them. I have some of the first ones I got and they are still going strong with a few years of use, lots of porting, and some grinding of stainless steel.

You can also try putting wax on the bits that you are running in aluminum. Purpose built bits for porting aluminum have much larger flutes and do not plug.

Yeah but even those plug to some extent. When I opened the center holes on my TL wheels to fit them on the GVR4 I bought one of the aluminum specific bits and it clogged slightly but if I would dip it into a cup of rust penetrant when I felt it getting a little "dull", it would wake right up again.

Finished. I used copious amounts of WD40 throughout the process. Pretty easy once you get the correct bit. This one for my Dremel was nice and small, so it fit into the factory hole and slowly enlarged it from there.
