Been awhile, finally have the means to get back to projects. Working on my 455 swap and wanting to run a remote filter for access and ability to easily mount a pre-lubing pump.
I'm trying to decide what to do with the filter, both in where to mount the filter base and what filter to use. My initial thought is to just stick to what would be stock configuration, but running a remote filter gives the option to run pretty much whatever I want on the engine. (455 going into a 84 cutlass, 7qt pan, hopefully headers, aluminum head/intake)
So I guess the real question is, are others using non-stock filters on their setups?

I have dual remote filters on both BBC Monte and my SBC Regal, I used Transdapt filter mounts and installed them both on the core support to give me easy access and there is plenty of ground clearance in this location.
I use 10 AN braided lines and hose ends for this set up and I use the K & N HP 3001 filters.
You would just use the Olds block adapter for your set up.

Any reason for using filters with a 8-11psi bypass?

Not sure. I recall seeing a "thinner" oil filter adapter thingie before. Mondello has one, but I think Rocket Racing had one too, but don't recall. I believe it doesn't use a bypass and moved the filter further inward toward the block to maximize header clearance.

I'm not sure of any adapter plates to bolt on the side of the block, and there may be those "spin on" ones as well, but I'm not too sure about them. If you can find a bolt on adapter, that would be good. Getting to the oil filter from under the hood is way better than getting it off from underneath with headers. Also, you can run an oil cooler with the filter setup.

Contact Extreme Supreme in that link you put up. He might still have one for sale. I have his Serpentine Adapter Brackets, well made.

Hadn't thought about the oil cooler, I'll look into that. And yeah, I'll probably just contact Extreme Supreme. Not really finding anything else. Thanks

Not sure but a Olds diesel may have what you’re looking for as far as a cooler but I think they went to the radiator tank with the hoses. Been a long time since I’ve seen one so I could be wrong. Haden makes an oil cooler adapter but don’t know about a filter relocation setup.

Yes, they do, have the fitting on the adapter but still use a regular filter. Now just to find one, a lot those blocks were scrapped.
