Oil filter sandwich plates are advantageous for installing remote oil filter systems. Sandwich plates are installed between the engine block and the oil filter. This unit allows the user to plumb an oil cooler to any remote oil filter system on Small Block Chevrolet (SBC) or Big Block Chevrolet (BBC) engines. Mocal's cast aluminum SP16T unit features a spacer for a reliable and robust seal against the unique oil filter surface of the SBC and BBC engines.
This sandwich plate also has a built-in 180°F (82°C) thermostat which bypasses the oil cooler until the oil has reached its minimum operating temperature. When used in conjunction with an oil cooler, this results in quicker engine warm-ups and prevents oil viscosity loss in colder conditions.
