AIRWOLF UNIV CONT AFC-K008-A
Just a heads up. My advice: order the -A kit for the O-300, GO-300 and the C series engines because it includes the oil temperature adapter fittings you will need. I believe there is a mistake on the application chart, grouping these engines with the 360 series engines (totally different) when they should all be together with the -A kit group. The mfr is looking into this but it can take some time to get the changes made.
Need to specify the kit does not include the hoses. Ad shows hoses included.
The final installed product is great. The O-300 kit however does not include the parts needed to attach the oil temp probe. That should be included in the kit as every O-300 that I know of has the oil temp probe going into the oil screen. Getting the required parts has been a pain in the neck. Airwolf customer service gave us the runaround and kept passing the buck until I finally nailed down a sales guy with the drawings and pointed out exactly which parts we needed which will end up costing us another hundred bucks. Good product, lousy customer service.
Perhaps its all in the ad and I shouldve read more carefully. For some stupid reason, I expected a universal filter relocation kit for my continental 0–300 to actually be a filter relocation kit. So, what was missing? Answer: the lines that run from the engine to the filter. That makes this a bag of hardware instead of a filter relocation kit. Total cost $588. But wait, theres always more! I called Airwolf. Time to do a little more math. They wanted $175 EACH for the lines. That turns this filter relocation kit for my Continental O–300 into a $940 proposition. Of course, its general aviation. Someones always got their hand in your wallet! Sometimes its expected and even understandable. Other times, not so much. This was one of those times when I just lack understanding. My answer: send it back and get an F&M kit. I just got the filter kit for my Continental engine today. It looks like a much more substantial product then the Airwolf bag of parts. Add in the fact that there are far fewer moving parts and what appears to be a more substantial housing for the filter and Im excited about this product! Yeah, my filter will sit next to the motor, but it stands far enough away that Ill be able to achieve the same result and be $500+ back to the green... and thats a whole lot of aviating.

The kit comes with a Champion Ch48109.
This kit does not come with hoses. Hose length is determined by where the installer chooses to locate the kit on the firewall.
These would ship with Champion CH48108-1 filters.
These come with a CH48108-1 filter but you can also use the longer CH48109-1 filter if you have the space.
The kit comes with everything you will need except hoses. The AFC-K008-A has size 10 fittings.
Ch48108 or the longer ch48109. Either would work depending on how much room you have under the cowling.
