Wow.... would have never thought that about Bosch, happy with mine so far but I hear the reasoning...

Anyhow the normal 3 brands I see are fram, stp, bosch... and I guess add wix to the list... you guys think the wix filter is the best ??? Are there any others brands that we can trust the quality?

I wonder if the motor mount bracket is loose from the block allowing it to tip over or something.

 

A normal, large filter should fit, no problem.

He did say it leans a bit left...

Maybe that should be addressed first....

I think he said There was an l18 in there before...

 

Datssuly did you have the same problem with that motor?

Are you using the mounts you had on the l18?

Is there a possibility the mount is bent on the passenger side?

Left would be the driver's side.

 

L16/18 and L20B are only different in height just below the head (2cm) Mount location should be the same and oil filter clear. Tons of room.

Had 2 wagons with L20, have 510 with L18 and L16, still wondering why his set up is like that with oil filter, there's lots of room even if you put an F1 filter, btw,will also fit my 65 mustang.

Sounds like he means left as he's looking at the motor....

I mess that up too....

 

There is definitely something missing to this whole story.....

I had a similar problem with my oil filter, won't get into that but what I found was...

Stock is a S8A. . 4.5 inches long

A bosch 3402 will work and is 3.75 long..

Also bosch 3321 is 3.25 inches long

Also stp s7328 is 3.25 inches.

And I won't even mention the fram....

 

You sir saved the day, thank you. The store didn't have the bosch but I got them to get the WIX equivalent which worked.

Yeah I used the same mounts from my L18, I think I remember reading somewhere that the l20b leans a little more than the smaller engines which might have caused it.

 

 

Thanks everyone for the help, I'll start a build thread soon that everyone can point out all the sketchy shit I did in haha

 

really I think remote cooler looks cooler

 

It definitely says racecar which appealed to my inner child, I'll probably put a less sketchy one in when I have the resources/get everything else sorted out.

Yeh, but could be very low, that's why I said to install an oil gauge

Very true...

Even if its temporary just to verify psi... can't hurt.

Personally I like gauges, I like knowing what everything is up to instead of guessing....
