Hi, when you fitted your mocal oil cooler do you still keep the plastic oil filter housing, so if you fit the oil cooler do you loose somewhere to have an oil filter?

Hi, with the original take of plate I bought it’s designed around the OEM plastic housing.

I’ve since changed and fitted a FSI oil filter housing which is alloy. And tig welded AN fittings on.

Thanks.

Did your take off plate look like this?




The plastic oil filter housing has an coolant outlet, I've drawn on roughly where it would be, that would have run through the original cooler. How did you blank that outlet and the coolant hose that connects to the old cooler?
