Final update:

Well, I'm going on 3 entire days now with NO OIL LEAKS! All it took was another filter housing This is the first time in many months that the car is not dripping any fluids on my garage floor. And I've only used up half of the 40lb bag of kitty litter

I'm going to hose the entire undercarriage down (while up on jackstands) with 2-3 cans of degreaser tonight in a local self service wash bay.

Get some "Spray Nine" and coat the bottom of the car, its better than the petroleum based degreaser IMHO.

Thats not bad idea for those who don't own a power washer.

Cy, take a picture of the other customers as they drive by with the WTF looks on their faces.

Ha Ha, I knew I wasn't the only one who thought of this. You should see the look on the carwash guy's face But hey, the sign says nothing about jacking your car up in the bay

On the filter housing, which side is IN, and which is OUT (looking in from the LF wheelwell)? I want to position the lines so that the IN is at the bottom of the filter, and the top is OUT. That way it'll self-purge any air inside the oil cooler when it begins to flow (and due to the upwards flow, the oil will stay in the cooler longer, thus allowing it to cool down longer).

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.

CP, or any others that have done this, I see that you wrapped half of the housing with tape to keep metal bits out of the other areas but what kind of solvent did you end up cleaning it with after you were done porting it? Just wd40?

Can I remove that bolt that is at the bottom in this photo? I want to make sure I get all the debris out before I bolt it on and run oil through the motor.

Also, thanks for posting pictures guys.

Yup, pull the bolt and the plunger and spring drop right out. Best way to douche everything out.

CP, (or others) where exactly was the leaking oil coming from before you replaced the housing? i have a 90 housing and cooler and have eliminated the balance shafts and it is leaking a lot from down there.

im hoping i didnt blow out my new front case seal or something else because of the extra high pressure... im going to pull the housing soon and dremel the relief hole out.
