LN Engineering's exclusive full-flow spin-on oil filter adapter allows for use of a conventional spin-on oil filter, rather than expensive and messy cartridge-style filters. Our spin-on oil filter adapter makes oil changes easy again! The LN Engineering Spin-On Oil filter adapter also helps improve the longevity of your engine by providing full flow filtration by deleting the bypass, which means 100% of the oil gets filtered and whatever goes to the filter stays in the filter. This limits collateral damage from foreign object debris that would otherwise re-contaminate the engine when using the factory filter arrangement.
Since a steel-bodied spin-on conventional oil filter is now employed, you can further reduce engine wear by using a Filtermag which reduces iron contaminants in your motor oil and thus reduces wear associated with these particles normally unfiltered by the oil filter.
If you choose to use a Filtermag, the correct one is this one: SS300 for use with our Spin On Filter Adapter
When installing, be sure to lubricate both o-rings with clean engine oil. Screw the oil filter adapter onto the engine by hand. Once the spin on filter adapter is fully engaged to the block, use a 26mm socket and torque to 25 Nm (18 Ft/Lbs). Also be sure to oil the filter gasket and pre-fill the oil filter before installing! Filter should be installed by hand then once snug, turned another 3/4 to 1 turn to finish filter installation, or to the filter manufacturers recommended specifications.
We use the Napa Gold 1042 or Platinum 1042 along with Joe Gibbs DT40 or the LN Engineering Billet Spin-On Oil Filter and Joe Gibbs XP9 for the track.
For street use in warmer climates, a 5w40 full-synthetic oil is recommended and for winter use with frequent cold starts, we recommend a 0w40 full-synthetic oil. Porsche approved oils of 0w40 and 5w40 are acceptable - use of thicker oils not recommended. Oil change interval should not exceed 6 months or 5,000 miles in street use.
For track use, our Billet High Performance Oil Filter is recommended and required when running an Accusump and is included in HPDE Accusump Kit, part number 106-12.1.
