The Schimmel Performance 12V VR6 Oil Filter Housing is the best upgrade available to protect the investment under your hood. This part starts out as a 5.5lb billet block of 6061 T6 alloy. After many hours of machining it is reduced to 1.75lb
It’s designed to be used with the most common spin on oil filter thread 13/16-16”, allowing you to choose from over 20 different brands spin on filters including Bosch, Amsoil, Mobil1, Fram, Wix, and even high end reusable filters. The oil filter housing comes with one high quality Bosch oil filter that has an anti-drainback valve. VR6 oem canister oil filter allows oil to drain out of the filter through the oil pump when the engine is stopped. When the engine is started next, oil must refill the filter before full oil pressure reaches the engine. The anti-drainback valve, included in most spin on oil filters when required, prevents oil from draining out of the filter. This anti-drainback valve is actually a rubber flap that covers the inside of the inlet holes of the filter. When the oil pump starts pumping oil, the pressure will unseat the flap. The purpose of this valve is to keep the oil filter filled at all times, so when the engine is started there will be an almost instantaneous supply of oil to the engine.
Our oil filter housing has two clean oil ports (1/8”ntp). To feed your turbo with fresh filtered oil and get proper oil pressure sample after the oil filter. The OEM oil filter housing has three ports for sensors on top. All of these ports are unfiltered oil from pan and are before the filter. If using any of the ports for turbo oil feed you are sending dirty oil to your turbo bearings which will drastically reduce its life and performance.
Not only does the SP oil filter housing protect your engine, it makes changing your oil a much simpler task. No longer do you have to handle changing out the cartridge, worry about contamination of the oil filter housing, depositing lint or transfer from whatever rag or paper is used to wipe out the housing, or thinking you have cross threaded the cheap plastic filter housing since they don't fit all that well. Schimmel Performance’s VR6 spin-on oil filter adapter makes oil changes quick and easy.
