    Default GReddy Oil Pressure Tree

    Kick ass piece! I blocked off the thread on my head for oil pressure.. I wanted to either start to take our pressure off of the oil filter in, or the turbo oil pressure feed.

    Reason being is because on my 3S-GTE, the location on the head is actually one of the worst spots to get oil pressure. Not only does the oil have to travel upward but its also one of the last spots to recieve oil and far away from the pump. So I wanted a good, clean, solid reading.

    Diagram of oil travel:

    *Note on the head, the stock location is in the top right with the arrow sticking out.

    So.. I got ahold of this part after Chris D pointed me in the right direction.

    Its a GReddy oil tree which sits below the oil filter and above the stock oil cooler.. a very cool unit! Infact, I have an oil relocation kit but I'm kind of sceptical of putting it on because of the increase in oil needed in the system. Suprisingly, with the 3" downpipe, putting this unit it you can still retain the oil filter in that location.

    This is a great piece! Well worth the 60 bucks or so shipped to my door for it. I now no longer have a T off the stock oil pressure out for the stock sensor and the oil pressure guage sensor. Just wanted to pass along the word! This was universal piece, part #12002801

    What kind of downpipe do you have? Also, is the dip stick better off, worse off, or no change? Does it just use the threads on the oil cooler where the oil filter would screw in? Like a oil tree sandwich right? Thanks.

    I have the 2.75 to 3" Top End racing downpipe. Dip stick isn't changed. And yes there is a small 1.5" adapter the screws over the stock oil coolers threads which just extends it to put the tree in. Very self explainitory piece.. I think you definately have the right idea, oil tree sandwich

    were you able to use the stock size oil filter for this piece or did you have to get a different size?

    Yes they are 1/8"NPT but they give you plugs with it.. unless your planning on T'ing in me.

    sorry.. didn't notice this thread got some posts. I'm still using the unit with the stock oil filter in place.

    Greddy does make a very nice sandwich adapter. I lucked out on the 1MZFE as there are oil gallery access plugs in the block behind the A/C bracket.

    Clayton, are you planning to install an external oil cooler? If so, I am curious to know where you plan to mount yours. I have most of the parts I need for my setup and the current plan is to mount it in the fender well.

    I also would like to run one of those, get a filter relocation kit (more oil is better from what I have heard) and get an aftermarket oil cooler to run in series with the stock one.

    I have the same plans (oil tree, relocation, and cooler). Anyone have a parts list and/or write up for that?
