- Buy it at your own risk. I wish I hadn't.
Many problems with this kit. First of all, one of the braided lines arrived damaged and leaked upon startup. Sent it back and FM replaced it. Next problem was that the braided lines are on the short side and barely clear my Skunk 2 manifold. Third problem is that the rubber mounts have failed one by one. I'll have to fabricate a bracket or remove the remote filter kit ( again ). Most of FM's stuff is very good, but this has been a huge disappointment.
- Definitely recommend!!
The quality of the components are FANTASTIC. Excellent job and paid great attention to detail. On my 97 NA everything fit nicely together. I was able to install the remote location as shown in the images for the product with ease. The rubber hose to protect other wires and hoses from the metal braid was a nice touch.
I did my first full oil change with it on (other than then I installed it) and it was AWESOME how easy it was. I have bigger arms and couldn't fit my arms under the intake manifold to get to the filter. I also have an Aluminium Aero tray on the bottom side and removing that is not something I want to do every time I do an oil change. This kit makes an oil change LIGHT WORK.
There is no additional noise in the cabin as far as I can tell. Not sure if a good idea or not but I threw some heat resistant thread sealer on all the fittings and hoses, gave it a gentle test drive around the block, checked for leaks and then RIPPED IT hitting 7K RPMs more than once, checked for leaks. Nothing. 2 weeks later and still no problems.
I did read after the fact of some people having issues with SIGNIFICANTLY reduced oil pressure with similar kits as a result of fitting angles and such but as far as I can tell no dramatic changes here. Unfortunately with the dummy oil pressure gauge I wouldn't really be able to tell unless i was getting absolutely no pressure.
- Great looking product
Looks awesome and fit perfect
- Best oil filter relocation kit
I looked at other relocation kits and the machining quality and the hose fittings quality sealed the deal. With something as critical as engine oil I don't like to cut corners. More expensive than other kits, but you get what you pay for and worth every penny.
Have them on both Miatas in our garage.
- Fantastic product !!
The Flyin Miata oil filter relocation kit is fantastic. I just installed this on my 96 NA and messy oil changes are a thing of the past! Top-notch quality, great installation directions, easy to install and looks very cool. Thanks to Flyin Miata.
