Just a few quick questions.

I want to run two lines from an adapter block, to a filter, and then have two more lines controlled by a thermostat from the filter to the oil cooler.

From what I know, I can either:

1) Get an oil relocation adaptor (the part that the filter screws onto... and then screw one of these on top of that (between the adaptor and the filter).

2) Or I can get one of these which does the job of both of the parts I'm talking about in #1.

Is this correct or in #1 are the two not supposed to bolt on top of each other?

Mazworx, Tomei, Stance all make oil block adapters that actually replace the OEM oil block that allow you to convert to -10AN lines. Then you'll need a thermostat such as an Earl's or equivalent. Some oil filter relocation pieces include the thermostat in them. It really is personal preference on how you'd like to run them.
