Default B230 Plus T Oil Filter Adapter

Looking into turbo oil sandwich adapters. Ive seen that the wahler original setups are the most reliable option. Also that doing -AN adapters on the setup is an upgrade.

I haven’t seen good things about the aftermarket setups with leaks etc. I have the oe volvo oil cooler.

Any insight?

Thanks

The stock Wahler/Setrab setup is pretty nice, yes. Don't see added value in many of the aftermarket things unless you spend big $$.

I duplicated the 240 turbo setup with the 940 water/oil heat exchanger and and acces to the filter is a pain.
If you can fit the angled 740 adapter that's best for easy maintenance. Just be advised that the stock downpipe of a 7/940 will need more modding clear the oil filter. My experience though is that there is ample space, just need to avoid pointing the downpipe straight down, then it almost hits the filter.

For oil feed I use the 1/4" NPT port close to the water pump. Piece of stainless steel braided hose with crimped on fittings and some JIC fittings make for a very reliable and cheap setup that still looks nice. Field tested for a very long time now.

Someone mentioned the 240’s use just the wahler sandwich plate with a stud where the oil filter goes and thats it.

Apparently 740s used the arm but its not necessary for the 240?

Thoughts?

I tried it with the arm on my 240. I didnt like where it put the filter, so now Im just running sandwich with filter. Its easier for me to get to it. I think its just your preference. I like to keep things simple as possible. Just the way Im wired.

740's used the same setup as 240's up to '86 only the hoses are longer. The filter relocation arm was used with the same oil to air cooler from '87-'91. It was changed to an oil to water cooler using the same arm in '92.

If you can find an early 240 setup. That comes with stainless braided hoses from the factory.

I can get ahold of the sandwich plate. Then I just need to get ahold of the stud from somewhere.

Im not wanting to do the newer water cooled setup. Can I use the 16t without the coolant setup? Its alittle more involved than I want to deal with.

I am confused: if the systems with and without the 90 degrees arm are interchangeable, that means the engine block has both threads for the stud on the first picture and the banjo bolt on the other ones. If that is the case, I wonder if the banjo bolt off the similar VW setup will fit (just thinking on alternative sources).
