there are two ways.

one. get a sandwich plate for the oil filter and run lines fromt there

two. get an electric pump, drill and fit two lines into you sump and run one from the sump to the pump to cooler back to the sump. mount the return line as close as you can to the oil pick up and it can help with oil surge problems too
