Spin-on Oil Filter Adapter for MY97-08 Boxster Cayman 911


In stock

SKU: 106-01

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, and improves oil filtration by eliminating the problematic factory filter bypass that can allow contaminants back into your engine, like what was in this filter:

Metal in Porsche oil filter from engine failure.

The LN Engineering Spin On Oil Filter Adapter is a must on all engines, especially those not yet retrofitted with an IMS Retrofit or IMS Solution, as foreign object debris from IMS bearing wear or failure can cause collateral damage in the engine as the factory filter cartridge bypass gets weak over time and allows the stock filter to run in bypass. This allows debris to exit the filter and contaminate the engine.

IMS Bearing Failure Debris

The spin-on oil filter adapter utilizes a Napa 1042, originally specified for 97-04 Chevrolet Corvette, rated for 9-11 GPM with 21 micron rating (versus 28 micron rating specified by Napa/Wix for their replacement for the factory oil filter insert) and full-flow filtration (no bypass valve).

Note: If you fit your engine with an IMS Solution, our spin on oil filter adapter is included which provides easy oil changes while providing filtered oil for the IMS Solution.

Makes oil changes easy again!



The LN Engineering Spin-On Oil Filter Adapter 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 from wear particles or debris.

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.

When installing, be sure to lubricate both o-rings with clean engine oil. Do not pre-fill the oil filter with 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.

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.

Oil change interval should not exceed 6 months or 5,000 miles for street using a 0w40 or 5w40 viscosity motor oil; higher viscosity is not recommended. The filter used in conjunction with the spin on oil filter adapter is from a 1997-2004 Chevrolet Corvette and is an excellent choice for this application with adequate size and very high burst strength (when using a Napa Gold 1042 or Wix 51042 filter)

For track use, our Billet High Performance Oil Filter is required and a race oil should be used with no more than 500 miles total drive time between oil changes.

Fits 986/987 as well as 996/997 models (& Cayenne S/Turbo MY03-06) & replaces Porsche part numbers 996 107 020 53 (54, 55) and 996-107-225-53.

For 987.2 MY09+ Boxster and Cayman models, use part number 106-01.3. NOTE: Does not work with 911 Turbo/GT2/GT3 engines.
