SVT oil cooler is a leaky sumbitch.
Yeah it's on the list. A sandwich plate would probably be half the thickness of the SVT cooler, and not as leaky.
I just wouldn't trust all those rubber hoses under there with both a remote filter AND a cooler. Maybe if they were braided -AN lines - but that's getting pricey.

EDIT: I'm trying to picture how the lines would run, and I'm seeing difficulty no matter how you do it. To the left you're passing the FEAD, which would be a catastrophic failure if the belt breaks and slices a line. To the right, you have to run behind the exhaust manifold, which hampers the "cooling" aspect.

How do people do these things?
Yep that is the pan that came on my Taurus 3.0. I think it has a bad gasket so perhaps I should look at an escape unit when I find time to fix that?

The 2.5 oil pickup wouldn’t fit on the 3.0, so I had to use the 3.0 pan to clear the 3.0 pickup.
