Check superturbodiesel.com - tuning performance turbo diesel mercedes, W123, W116 and up. OM617, OM60X and the Mercedes section of www.4btswaps.com Most people fab their own and use AN fittings, braided SS hose, and a regular remote filter adapter.

It is not a good idea to replace the factory oil filter with a "modern spin-on". The benz unit is not only a main and bypass filter but thermostatically controlls the flow through the cooler. This is way better than a single spin-on, if you need to move for clearance then just remote mount the facory unit. What trans are you planning on using in the FJ?

External oil cooler thermostats are available for around $50.

A cooler must be installed though and it needs a thermostat set for over 212*f.

sounds like the best option if to make an adapter that allows me to relocate the stock housing...

Hey looks great! I see you also have the motor with the cali emissions although yours has already been deleted. I kind of like the turbo mounted up high, and the intake looks like it flows better. I like your FJ! Keep us posted.

Worse actually, the air has to make two hard right turns instead of flowing straight in.

With the help from a few friends, I know have an adapter made from 5/8" aluminum...really happy with how it turned out

Used a gasket, as a template:

the biggest reason for my oil-housing relocation was due to a parking brake cable interference...no longer an issue

Great job on whittling that piece out.Give me a few days and I'll have one filed out of aluminum.
