    just my .02 cents here

    Best cooling reroute is Qmax, I will be ordering one soon

    Best oil filter relocation is ?? hard to say, everyone seems to make one, they all look the same, but here is a start

    Oil catch can is not really needed, maybe more needed when you are forced induction, lots of them available, I like the one from Cusco because most of the other don't have a sight glass.

    I knew I could count on You for answers!!! Thank You So Very Much! The reason I asked about the oil filter relocation was because, I too liked the Flyin Miata one, as it looks Top Quality, but there is another that mounts to the frame sideways and a not miata specific that mounts to the frame up right. Both would be under the front plastic shield thing (sorry don't know the official name) and my thoughts were maybe it would catch some air flow and act like a small oil cooler sort of. If you think that's far fetched, than OK because it would be a Big Pain taking down the shield every time I change the oil. Please let me know your thoughts on that angle. I may over think things, but in the past I didn't and that cost me too!!! I want to get this right the first time. Thanks Again! I am Very Grateful.
