I don't expect the filter to catch much in this 97 Maxima running Recochem red (but who knows what shops did to it for the first 112k miles); I blame wanting to do this on BITOG
I want to install it in the throttle body loop (5/16" hose) which is a bypass of the heater loop. A plugged filter should not be an issue, as it would just reduce flow to the TB; I have contemplated removing the TB out of the loop more than once (making the removal of the aluminum intake manifold collector less of a PITA).
Option 1. Use a larger metal fuel filter such as the Wix 33022. I would have to strap it to other hoses in the area.
Option 2. Use a synthetic oil filter mounted on a remote base with a 3/4-16 thread. I know about the 11/16-16 thread coolant filters (cellulose Wix 24069, 24070), but most of the discussion dates from way back, when synthetic media oil filters weren't common. I figure synthetic media should hold up better than cellulose media, the only unknown would be the glue. Disclaimer: I have a large stash of 3/4-16 oil filters.
I would mount this either on the transmission (M8 threads available) or on the strut tower (M6 threads available) with more vibration.
I'd appreciate your thoughts please.
