    That is an option that has been done with a remote filter. Ideally you would not swap the lower case only since it's line bored but I have seen that done as well.

    You could even just loop it back to the bypass and not worry about a filter. Just change the oil regularly. The filter only captures about 5-10% of the flow at any given moment anyway.

    You could do the remote setup like pictured or just not worry about it! Added another picture of a repair we did years ago. It worked but not super great. Use the later model spin on adapter thread in bolt to hold it on. Then you simply used a spin on filter. Another fix we've done is weld on a spin on adapter to the block.
