Accusump installed

Thought I would post some pics of my accusump installation, it sits inside my cabin behind my engine bay between the rear shocks, I have a rear strut brace and still managed to fit it all in. I will post a how to when I tackle the electrics as I will be using a oem switch fitted into a blank spot in my centre console. I have run the wiring in the mean time.

I used a sandwich adapter along with a billet LN re-usable oil filter. The sandwich/re-usable filter set up measures 20mm longer than the standard oem filter housing. I have a LN 0.5 quart deep sump and for all practice purposes you can say the new filter set up's bottom is flush with the pan's bottom.

I bought all the parts for my installation in a kit from LN, the build quality was awesome on everything. The actual filter housing and its cap was un-anodized so I had it anodized red locally. Nobody will ever know except me, but I'm still glad I did it just because I can

Nicely done!! I can't belive you got it in there! What size is the unit? What mounting hardware / method did you use?

I suppose removal of the foam insulation helps....as I recall that may affect the route to the drains
