Kawasaki Engine

I recent purchased a Toro personal pace push mower with a Kawasaki 5 hp engine. On Kawasaki's web site, they list 3 versions of this engine including one that has an oil filter and is pressure lubricated. Does anyone know if you can convert this engine to the one that has an oil filter and is pressure lubricated?

I know if you have a splash sytem, it wouldn't do any good to put a filter on it. I did have it added to my JD 21" when I bought it.

If I remember right, there is just a plate on the motor instead of a filter adapter, so if you see this, I would think the filter could be added.
