Tom,

I've been looking into this. I've got the Pegasus Racing catalog. What I
plan to do is use a takeoff that replaces the filter (and filter
adaptor) and just screws into the existing filter head (where the
cannister or spin on adaptor would normally attach). From there the
plumbing is: s/s hose to the remote filter head, s/s hose from remote
filter head to oil cooler, s/s return line from oil cooler to the
takeoff at the filter head.

It is preferable to filter the oil before it gets to the cooler, while
it's hot. That and the convenience of a remote filter head are the two
reasons I'm considering this mod. Pegasus offers all the parts I need to
do the job. I am thinking about adding a line to route a bit of
additional oil to the rocker assembly, too.

Off to work. See ya.
