oil filter relocation

I am relocating my oil filter, does it matter if the filter is upside down or side ways for the oil pressure to be correct?

it doesnt matter,try to make it easy for you to get at and change
also somewhere that it might get some cool air (at least keep it away from heat sources) would be best.

i would also say, use a good quality filter with an anti-drainback valve if you end up mounting it sideways or upside down

How do you relocate a oil filter? Are there kits to buy for this? I may have to do this also since I am installing headers.

Yes, there are kits, contain an adapter to replace the stock filter that has hose ports, a pair of hoses and fittings, and a remote filter mount. Trans-Dapt is one I know of off hand, Moroso, Canton, Fram also has kits, and there are several different companies in Jeg's or Summit.

My T/A has a moroso on it seems to work fine, but i really like the "Trans-Dapt" Eric and Richard are talking about.

Avoid at all cost mounting it upside down. I have seen that on some new cars and it is an absolute bonehead idea IMHO. It makes a huge mess every time oil is changed.

I don't like them on their side either IMHO.

I had to use a remote oil filter kit on my 468 bbc '86 Monte SS.Between the kicked out oil pan sump and the 2 inch headers,there was no room to get the oil filter off.I made a couple of brackets and attached them to oil pan studs to hold the oil lines in place.I didnt want them rubbing where they shouldnt.Then I had hoses made from braided SS line,and I covered them with some old spark plug boot protector material and Thermotec wrap where they run by the block & headers.I mounted it behind the left side headlight.Heres some pictures;

Thanks for the compliment !!!
Its very easy to get at the filter,which is a K&N unit,with the anti drain back feature.I also reinforced the other side of where the bracket bolts to with a piece of thick aluminum.

I like your set-up also Guy. Here's how mine is on my T/A , guess you can see it on the passenger side. Pretty simple seems to work alright.
And also mine is a Moroso relocation unit.
