Improved Racing's remote oil filter mount features a built-in thermostat to save both space and cost. Intended for use with an oil cooler, the internal thermostat ensures engine oil reaches safe operating temperatures quickly and prevents over-cooling.

The thermostat valve is available in 185°F, 205°F and 215°F temperatures for use with engine oil. It's also available in 165° and 145°F ratings for use with transmission fluid. In most conditions, it will maintain oil returning to the engine or transmission at these minimum temperatures.

This remote filter head features female -10AN O-ring boss threads. Fittings are available to accommodate -6AN, -8AN, -10AN and -12AN lines, or 3/8" and 1/2" hose (-10AN lines are recommended for most applications).

This unit is available with either an M22x1.50 or 13/16"-16 filter screw. For a list of compatible filters, CLICK HERE.

The filter screw is machined from hardened 410 stainless steel, which is stronger and more durable than common grades such as 304 and 316. The mounting bracket offers four different mounting options, is made from lightweight aluminum, and is Type II anodized for durability.

Features and Benefits

  • Reduces excessive engine wear and horsepower losses while improving gas mileage by accelerating engine warm up and preventing oil temperatures from dropping below optimal levels
  • Oil flows through filter first (thermostat does not bypass the filter)
  • Allows a small percentage (less than 10%) of fluid to continually circulate through the cooler to eliminate air pockets and prevent cold fluid trapped in the cooler from shocking the system
  • Rebuildable
  • Large M22x1.50 or 13/16"-16 filter thread is compatible with a wide range of filters
  • Supports filters with gasket outer diameters up to 3.44" (minimum gasket inner diameter is 2.00")
  • Filter screw is machined from hardened 410 stainless steel for excellent durability
  • 6061-T6 billet aluminum construction with black MIL-A-8625 Type II anodized finish
  • Lightweight black anodized aluminum mounting bracket with 4 different mounting options
  • Female -10AN O-ring boss ports
  • Patent-pending design
  • Made in USA
  • Lifetime Warranty

Everything about this filter mount is great, except the mounting bracket. It is so thin and flimsy the filter and filter mount rock back and forth with ease. I am having to brace the filter because I fear the bracket will fail if I don't. If it had been made of thicker aluminum it might have been better or at least gusseted the bends. If it was made from steel I doubt it would flex at all.

Installed on my 2017 Nissan Titan XD 5.0 Cummins with the 6spd Aisin trains.

It would rev flair on upshifts when cold (and even fully warmed) and since the truck has no thermostat on the trans cooler circuit from the factory, the fluid would never warm enough for the TCM to enter learn mode and "fix" its shift events. After installing the IR unit and driving the truck a few times where the fluid warmed up to engage the TCM learning mode it smoothed the shifts in the truck out completely and it almost never has any rev flair in upshifts or harsh downshifting anymore.

The fact that it also has a filter boss for added filtration is a nice additional perk since the oem trans filter is something like 80 or so micron mesh screens and using a normal spin-on oil filter at about 20 microns will for sure help prolong the fluid life and help reduce the amount of particulate and wear inside the trans.

Improved sure does make some nice stuff.

Yet to install; however, the quality of this product is incredible and the service is just as good.

I can tell there will be no dramas with the install as the fit and finish quality, is well above it's competitors. There is the option to swap out thermostats at a later date, if required.

Finally got around to installing this with a Mocal 235 series cooler, does exactly what it's advertised to do. The quality is unmatched on the filter mount and thermostat, wish I would have used this from the beginning.
