    Default Idle thought - has anyone ever converted a 1.9 to take a spin on oil filter?

    As above, really.

    More convenient and a remote mount kit would allow for much easier access to the filter than the pain in the arse to reach place it's in as standard.

    I know you can get them easily enough for other cars, just wondering if these had been done.

    In theory it can't be that hard to do can it. It's just moving the oil somewhere else. Now I'm down in Cornwall I've got access to most of a machine shop and a milling machine... Might pick up a cheap standard oil cooler off Ebay to see how something could be made.
