Sorry for the delay, here are photos extracted from the Perrin WRX oil cooler kit installation manual. Looks like spacer is required to clear the timing cover..

I have spoken to Marcos at Motorsport Connections (MSCN) and he will try help me out.

Cheers,

Pete.

When i did my oil filter relocation for the low mount turbo, i had the take-off come directly off the engine block eith no spacer. It was a Mocal block and the entry exit came off sideway. (looked very similar to tge mocal unit pictured in the perrin picture, except it had no thermostat, and the bottom bit where the gilter would go is a blank cap.) Yes, the oil pipes did interfere with tge timing cover marginally. Because i was tigjt for space, i didnt get a spacer, instead, i just notched the timing cover to clear the hose fittings. Its only the cover, it misses the belt by a long way still.

Thanks Bram, I think you got the K type? From the Mocal website below:

Yeah, the Perrin does look like they use a Mocal plate.

Yeah, okay. That's good to know! I'll look into it. :thumbs:

I did also have to make a straw bolt in order to make it work. The OEM straw bolt is obviosly designed for the oil-coolant modine heat exchanger. So once i deleted that, and went straight to a take off for remote filter, then there is no easy bolt arrangement. I got a motorcycle flywheel puller tool from ebay which happened to be the perfect thread etc and used that

Nice work Bram. Did your foz come with an OEM oil-coolant cooler? I'm not too familiar with your model specifically but I don't recall seeing one... All I know is that WRX STIs have this OEM oil-coolant cooler, whereas WRXs do not.

Yes. All turbo 2.5s do i believe. Its not quite the same as the Sti one though. As at one stage i actually got an sti one to fit a half moon sump.

JDM Spec C engines dont have the modine heat exchanger. They had a proper oil cooler, and the water pumps only have 2 extra ports instead of 3 like the others.

Hmmm I'll have to take another look... do you have a photo? When I search, I just see the GRB STI OEM oil coolers (pictured below)

Wont have any photos as it was years ago. But i am pretty certain that all the 2.5L turbo have the oil to coolant heat exchanger. But there are different versions of the heat exchanger over different years/models. With my model for example. In order to remove the square sump, and fit a half moon sump for equal length headers. Then you need the STi version of the heat exchanger, and a slightly different length center bolt. Because the forester version is too short and fat or something.

On my model, above the heat exchanger there was also an extra adapter plate thing that slightly angled the heat exchanger. But you can undo that and turf it if yours has it.

The biggest hurdle you will have if you are removing the oil-water heat exchanger all together is getting a replacement center bolt. Without the heat exchanger, the bolt is way too long. That is why I had to get a motorcycle flywheel puller bolt and mod it. And probably why the perrin kit comes with a spacer included. Its probs easier for perrin to make a spacer, than it is to make a short center bolt.

Also, that picture you showed above is explaining how to bypass the coolant. Another option is to use a Spec C water pump. It doesnt have the extra port. Then you simply get another coolant passage threaded core plug to plug up the other end of the hose. My drysump kot came with a Spec C water pump included because the drysump is in the way.
