LLT LFX oil cooler

I feel engine over heating is one of the bottle neck on the track. Iím thinking about adding an engine oil cooler. However, thereís no adaptor for the OEM oil filter housing.

Wondering if I could replace the OEM filter housing with 2012 Impala filter housing, then add an cooler adaptor? I think the pressure sensor is different. Not sure if thatís possible.

Any ideas?

Attached is the impala filter housing

Looked into doing this myself and found that the A/C compressor prevents this part from being mounted.

Did it on my twin turbo LLT. A few mods to make it work but turned out great.you have to cut the drip flange off the adapter and plug the oil psi fitting hole then mount the oil pressure sensor in the line going out. Clearance the hose adapter for AC line and/or clearance the AC fitting and that should do it. If you check the specifications on the oil pressure sender that is used on the Impala, you may find it to match the Camaro is electrical resistance values. I did not take the time to do that. If it will work, leave it in the same place because it will clear the top of the AC unit and simply splice in the connector from the Impala. That would make this a very easy swap.
