I had planned to use this setup, which requires cutting oil tubes that come down to filter bowl and using compression fittings to go to pretty much any type of hose you would want to build up, allowing you to pretty much use a variety of good aftermarket filter options or even moving the stock filter bowl if you wanted to retain it. And you could route the lines about anywhere you would want to mount the filter. The advantage of this concept in my mind is 1) lower cost 2) flexibility; Disadvantage is you cut the lines, so you would have to replace them if you ever wanted to go back to original. I ended up using Timberline Vans Relo Kit because I ended up w/ budget to afford it.
I still have the parts for sale and would work w/ someone on price if they wanted to use them.
