Can't you just get a better oil feed line made? My brother got a quote for like $10 a foot on a stainless steel braided oil feed line for his turbokit that he was going to put back into his Altima.

Yes, you can. But, if your going to stay stock. You have to inspect and clean that stupid filter periodically. Damn service techs won't take it out for you either. They say eliminating it will void the warranty because it'll let the carbon deposits destroy the turbo. I counter argued that a clogged screen will do the same thing through oil starvation. So, what's the difference? Mute point....like i said. If you want rid of it. Get a new oil line with two ends or make your own if your handy enough.
