If you use a sandwich plate as an OEM oil filter location adapter, some of them have the inlet / outlet ports built right into them.

If you're doing custom lines ... I've seen installations where the return line is sent back up to the valve cover (probably too high for good flow, but I've seen it). I've read at least one writeup in which the guy somehow plumbed his return line into the OEM oil cooler unit on the 5VZ.

Thumbs up

that looks like it might work...I could put 't' fittings on the feed and return lines for the bypass filter...I'll try and find out if there is enough pressure and flow to support both filters...

Thanks!
