Remote Oil Filter.
Since I started using the spin on oil filter with the GT6, doing oil changes on the GT6 has been nothing but a pain. The steering shaft on LHD drive GT6's gets right in the way. Add the braking system, fuel lines and oil cooler setup to the mix and its a total nightmare. In the spring of 2008 it took over 3 hours to do a simple task, that is going to change.
On the 7th of Dec 2008 I placed an order with for a Remote Oil Filter Mount Kit. Part # 771-10695, Single Mount Kit.
771-10695 Single Mount Kit $47.99
Fed EX Shipping $12.90
Fed EX Broker $19.36
Total $90.24 US = 117.86 CND
Back in 2004 I found this info on the Yahoo GT6 forum.
A GT6 owner named Matt reported his was using the kit.

Photos he included on the forum:
I will run my setup similar to above, but I will route my lines a little differnet so I do not require an 90 degree adaptors. If I can run the lines between the shock tower and the block I should be in good shape. Time will tell.
Another link I found on the product.
Talking to the Jeg rep, I should still be able to run my K&N HP1002 filter or longer filters once I reloacte the system.
