I'm looking at getting a sandwich plate and need to know the thread size to get the right one.

For those wondering what I'm talking about:

I don't know the actual size, but I do know if you get one from summit racing, they include adapters to work with almost any thread size.

Also I've used both the sandwhich adapter and the filter relocation kit... both of them with external oil coolers and both from summit. Gotta say the filter relocation kit is MUCH easier to use. The sandwhich adapter makes the filter stick out farther and it comes off every time you have to change the filter and drips oil everywhere and makes a mess. The relocation kit adapter stays on the block, and the filter adapter stays wherever you mount it, so you only have to remove the filter. Plus you can mount it vertical so it doesn't drip oil when you spin it off. :thumbs:

Any link to those? Do they have the taps for oil feed lines?

I might look into the relocation kit and kill 2 birds with one stone.
