We are very happy to release our DDMWorks oil cooler and filter relocation kit. We have been testing this setup for a long time now and it is now available.

The DDMWorks Oil cooler and filter relocation kit is a great addition for those that drive their Slingshot hard or have added a Supercharger or Turbo. We have specifically designed this kit to be a plug and play install on the Polaris Slingshot to give protection from high oil temperatures found in boosted or hard driven Slingshots.

The full plug and play kit is $795, but through 11-28-16 it is on sale for only $695

For more information or to order - DDMWorks Slingshot Oil Cooler and Filter Relocation kit

When you drive your Slingshot hard, the oil temperatures will start to climb and if you have added a Supercharger or Turbo those temperatures only get hotter. As the engine oil starts to heat up it will start to breakdown and not provide as much protection to the engine and can start to lead to failures. Our kit is designed to fight higher temperatures in a couple of ways.

The unique oil filter we designed fits in the place of the stock oil filter and cap allows large -10AN hose to be routed to an external oil cooler and filter. The oil cooler is mounted with a stainless steel bracket on the drivers side of the engine bay that allows air exiting the engine bay to flow through the cooler to take away heat from the oil. Then the oil is sent to a larger oversized oil filter that provides more surface area than the stock filter, providing longer filter life and less pressure loss across the filter than stock.

All of the extra parts in the system also increase the oil capacity of the oil system by an amazing 2 quarts. With the larger amount of oil in the system, it takes longer for the oil to increase its temperature, providing more protection.

If you drive your Slingshot hard, this kit is a simple plug and play solution to give your engine protection from high oil temperatures.

The kit it comes with:
  • DDMWorks Billet Oil Filter Adapter
  • DDMWorks Billet Filter remote base with threaded adapter
  • Stainless steel mounting bracket for filter remote (optional black powder coat)
  • High Performance Oil Cooler
  • Stainless steel Oil cooler mount (optional black powder coat)
  • -10 AN Braided Stainless Steel oil filter line
  • -10 AN Braided Stainless Steel oil cooler line
  • -10 AN Braided Stainless Steel adapter line
  • Stainless steel hardware required for installation
  • Full Color instructions

Looks like a messy oil filter change.

Dave, does the oil pan have to be drilled for the return line or is going into something existing? (hope that makes sense).
If I'm looking at the lines right it looks like a line leaves their oil filter replacement adapter, goes to the cooler, leaves the cooler, goes to the new filter location, leaves the new filter and returns to the filter replacement adapter.

What I am not sure about is the red arrows. Maybe I am missing something. It's been a looooooong week.

That's the feed line going to the oil cooler from the old filter location. Their filter replacement adapter has 2 ports. One inlet and one outlet. It's essentially just making a big loop.

If you look closely between your two left red arrows there is a red -AN fitting and that is where the oil leaves the oil cooler and heads to the new filter location.

I like that the factory oil filter comes out without dumping oil, only a drop or two and a rag stops that real quick.
Can the new filter be installed so that the filter under not over? Filter would still drain down the sides a bit but would be way better then an upside down one.

The factory filter is upside down......

Yes it is but when I remove it carefully, it only drips a bit. A rag under it catches most if not all the drips.
I'll bet a half a quart of oil is in that aftermarket oil filter, will drain out through the slingshot chassis and make a horrable mess IMO.
Love what it does tho and will live with the problem if I get this system.

You may want to do some research on how filters work when they are in this orientation before you assume they will drain out and make a huge mess.

Hmmm, I work on most of my friends cars, oil changes are the first thing I introduce them to. Most folks around these parts change there oil and filter every couple years!(I convince the on 6 months intervals) So I have changed hundreds if not thousands of oil filters on older cars in the last 30 years.... Does not matter if they are upside down or right side up, a mess happens! The slingshot is the first vehicle I have worked on that has this type of cartrage filter like an old Mercedes has, very clean coming out and going back in. Only thing i don't like about it is your unable to add oil to the filter before it goes back in.

If the systems is drained properly. Very little to no oil will be released when the filter is removed.

Like mentioned before if you do some research you will realize that DDMs setup is almost identical to the factory set-up and will make little to no mess when removing.

There's this amazing phenomenon known as "gravity". Perhaps some of you have heard of it?!
:D
If you've ever seen Tripod on a date, you'd know about gravity. They meet, they talk, he puts a little "gravity enhancer" in her drink, she falls down, has trouble getting up, he gives her a hand, takes her home and watches over her the rest of the night--gentleman all the way.

I don't know if you have changed oil on an SS, but it's the same setup as my GF's Edge Sport: Upside down oil filter. There is zero spillage. Just heat it up, pop the oil filler cap, drain the oil and then remove the filter. You will need one paper towel at most.
