I bought a cheap oil cooler/filter relocation kit on ebay for a subaru but ended up selling the car before installing it. I still have the kit and wanted to put it on a rb motor. The lines look huge (7/8") and I wanted to know if the oil pump would have enough strength to flow everywhere efficiently.

I wouldn't see why not, its not that restricted of a flow. It will just take more oil to fill the huge lines and the cooler

Alright, I'm going to assume that you are right because the 23 other people that viewed this thread did not disagree. Thanks for your input man. :)

-10 is 10/16" inside diameter. No where near an inch.

10/16" = 5/8" :)

well now that we are all clear on standard sizes, lets help this man out....

I wouldn't worry about it being too big. Honestly it wont add that much strain on the oiling system

Woops, probably seemed big cause of the stainless stuff outside... -8 or -10 forgot which one.
