    I'm looking for a forward facing 6 bolt OFH that has the ports for an external oil cooler. Do these even exist? I have a normal side facing OFH with the cooler ports, and now a forward facing OFH, but it doesn't have those ports. As asked, does it exist?

    I'm not sure if it even exists Mitsubishi one, I have never seen it.
    But FFOFH + this kind of sandwich adaptor doesn't work for your setup?

    They do exist, but they are extremely rare, and vary hard to find in the US, they were on some Euro market 2.0 SOHC turbo Starions and older early 80s rwd lancer 2.0 sohc turbos, you can no longer buy them new but the part number for one is MD041094

    No, this would work. I just didn't want to use one if I didn't need to.

    So why do you want to use a FFOFH? For what kind of racing and what oil temp do you have?

    That is because they were never sold on US models, but I will share an amayama diagram image of one.
    I do know of 1 guy that purchased one, but it took him a long time to find it, and someone willing to ship it to him, and I doubt he will ever sell it, however he may have posted pictures of it on facebook but I'd have to hunt for the images the diagram below should give you an idea of how it went it is the one in the image below with the thermostat valve. 1568722430845_big.jpg

    Once the car is finished, I might do some autocross, but the forward facing ofh is because I hate removing my downpipe every time I need to change ge the oil. Plus I never liked the oem oil cooler on the ofh. I like to have less coolant lines in places I don't want them.

    you might also want to consider remote mounting the oil filter, however that might not be aesthetically what your going for but that is also a good option.

    I see. I think a remote oil filter is the way to go.

    That's pretty awesome. I've ordered from them a couple times. Takes forever to get but they have come thru on rare and discontinued parts for me.

    I saw someone in facebook who fabricates it like the pic. I don't know if he is a member of here. And maybe I shouldn't put his personal info here, so I pm you.
