Some type of oil filtration system, my guess. Is the VK a six or a V8?

Edit - just had a closer look at the pics, Id say it definantly an extra oil filter that worked in conjunction with the main filter. Aftermarket set up, or maybe even home made. Made up with various items.

They have plumbed it into the oil gallery where the oil pressure switch normally goes, and bypassed it back to the sump.

Whoever did it must've wanted really clean oil!

Wait. I know what this is! Someone tried to sell me one i think! It is an oil filter that makes you not need to change you're oil for like 5 years or something. It is aftermarket. I was drunk at the time and i would rather have new oil lol. But yes i remember now. He showed me the identical thing on a corolla.

lol, it had a normal oil filter too.
this one would restrict the flow way to much thats why we think it has something to do with taking the air out of the oil??????
