Over 650 of these kits have been installed
This kit mounts to the large horizontal space just behind the passenger side headlight, NOT to the firewall (hence no noise is transmitted to the passenger compartment).
The Thompson Quick-Change oil filter relocation kit will fit ALL 2nd generation or 'NB' (1999 to 2005) Miatas, including those with ABS and all MazdaSpeed Miatas.
Effective immediately all oil filter relocation kits will ship with an added port to allow the user to add a temperature sensor to the remote base. Just remove the plug and screw-in a temperature sender and you're good to go. Also check-out out our new DIN panel for mounting your gauges.
- Fast & easy oil changes - even for those not particularly mechanically inclined
- No cockpit noise transmitted from filter
- Some additional oil cooling capabilities
- No oil spills
This is it, the oil filter relocation kit you've heard so much about. The two adapter components in our kit are CNC machined from 6061 billet aluminum to our specifications (no die-cast parts here) and anodized black. The hoses and fittings used are aircraft grade.
Thompson Quick-Change oil filter relocation kit with black high-temp hoses and colored (blue with red ring) aluminum anodized fittings. Base and adapter are CNC machined from solid 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, anodized black. All components needed for installation are included with the kit, including a tube of Permatex high-temp thread sealant, mounting hardware and hose protector. Full installation instructions are also included with photos and tips.
This kit not only makes oil changes significantly easier, but also provides some cooling of your oil. Customers have reported oil temps running about 8 degrees below water temps. This is achieved by the filter being mounted away from the block and by the cooling fins on both of the machined components.
This second generation kit has an improved O-Ring (Viton) and groove design that should not require O-Ring replacement for the life of the kit.
Sold by the foot this is extra hose protector for protecting your oil lines from abrasion, or in the case of stainless steel lines, it will protect other items in your engine bay from abrasion by the stainless steel braid.
Here you go. Order this. You will receive 2 O-rings, one to replace your worn-out or leaking one, and a 2nd to keep as a spare. Put it in your glove box so you'll know where it is next time. Note: O-Rings have been upgraded from Buna Nitrile to Viton. Viton is more durable & longer lasting.
