    I gotta do an oil filter relocation because of clearance issues with these damn headers.I got a TD performance kit from summit, it comes with 30in hoses.
    If i put it on the inner fender it would be facing upward making for a real messy oil change right? Or would the oil drain from the filter back into the pan, and end up taking longer to circulate on start up?
    Or should I just put it on the frame?
    Thanks
