i bought my car a couple of years ago a bare shell with the engine bolted in roughly. it never had an oil cooler and ive never had any problems. but cos ive started to tune my engine i thought i would better put one on. when ive looked there is no means of putting one on. there are no pipes etc, the sandwitch plate is missing. i have a valver nova as well with one on but i couldnt even swap that cos where the filter screws on the thread is the other way round. has my oil pump been changed for an 8v one?
If you take off the filter, the screw stud it attaches to should come out (when unscrewed obviously). Then the one with the sandwich plate is a lot longer to allow for the plate and that then should work.
