Dear all

Working on installing an extra oil cooler on my 2.4D AAB (I will post some images later as reference) - this to improve the cooling capacity of my van, and to prepare for a turbo (don't tell my wife - she is not yet convinced we need one I: ...)

I put the cooler in front of the radiator, now preparing the tubing towards the 'block' which needs to go on top of the oil filter. However, I notice that I probably need a shorter oil filter, since, due to the height of this extra block, the oil filter will collide with the engine block / sump.

Anybody any idea which oil filter is suitable? (type of car / engine, but preferably also part no.)

Thanks,

Remko

Sorry can't see why you would need shorter as there is loads of room.

So you are adding another oil cooler as well as the existing one!

VW have filters in two lengths anyway longer for a long life service interval and shorter for shorter service intervals.
