I have not received any information back form Mishimoto on the fitment issue. I am guessing they are not going to respond. They said they would contact me by e-mail and they said they viewed this thread. I most likely should have never gone down this road as it doesn't look like I will be getting any support. SHOSKER's install shown using the 500 motorcraft filter. I guessing that is the issue. I am not sure what I am going to do at this point. Would love to find a quality oil to air cooler for my project. I have searched around and have not found any other option that used a thermostat to control temp.

First question - I should be able to use the Ford Racing FL820 oil filter part number is CM-6731-FL820 oil filter in my car, no?

I have looked closely and it is on many web sites this filter will fit my car. I am not sure the differences but I purchased some of these filter due to believing they are an upgrade.

I received my Mishimoto oil cooler kit from American Muscle. Alex cam through with great customer service and got me the cooler kit.

It appears to me the sandwich plate does fit the FL820 filter.

Has anyone been on this path before me and can they offer some guidance on my question/concern? I will not be able to contact Mishimoto until Monday.

The filter is the correct part number right?

Am I missing a better solution for oil cooling and ports for gauges?

Thank you in advance, john

Sorry for the delayed response! I ran out of time yesterday to check these filters, but managed to sneak out today and grab some measurements.

Interestingly enough, the 820 filter does indeed have a larger O-ring, which is what is causing the overhang. Dimensions below.

FL820
OD: 72.75MM
ID: 63.35MM
Width: 4.7MM

FL500
OD: 69.75MM
ID: 60.35MM
Width: 4.7MM

Our kit was built around the 500 filter and I would not recommend using the larger 820. While the 820 might fit just fine on the factory oil filter housing, the footprint on our sandwich plate is smaller.

So, a 500 filter should solve this one for you. Samantha will likely be reaching out to you by phone or email today to pass on the information. In addition, we should probably add a note to our site indicating the 820 filter should not be used.

Let me know if you have any additional questions!

Thanks
-John

That's the one!

I guess I have 6 oil filters FL820 that I can't use - YES listing the fitment issue in the products description would help a lot. This oil cooler project has been a test, for sure.

ok so this is an update to oil cooler project. The Mishimoto kit does not come with directions. I knew that when I ordered. In addition no install video is available. Having good mechanical aptitude and experience I went ahead with the purchase. Here is the down side. It is not clear how Mishimoto intended the hoses to be routed. also if you want to use the two ports for senders you are limited as to how you mount the spacer block on the engine. I have read everything I can find on the web about this install on our cars and several people write about the hose length and lack of directions. The mounting of the cooler and the bracket are 100% good. The hosing is pretty silly.


After spending hours working on this I have finally decided to dump the project. In the end I was looking for something very professional and this kit is not that. How do you sell a nearly $600.00 dollar outfit without any instructions? I think I got burned on this one. I will be selling the kit for a loss and re-group. For now I am putting my car back together without the cooler but I did get a different spacer to run the new gauges. I am going to look at the Cool Tech kit. More expensive yes but it is supported by the manufacturer.


Lastly ever notice how if you don't leave a positive review of products a lot of web sites won't post the review? Even if it is honest in content. LOL o'well live and learn. I am only updating to hopefully save someone else that searches about the kit the frustration - This kit is sold as a "direct fit" and the bracket and cooler is that - the rest - not so much. Buyer beware on this one.
