        It says that this adapter faces forward. In my aplication I need it to face backward, will it work properly or not?? Thanks, Mark

        • Unfortunately, this will only work properly when it is facing forward.

            Poor packaging

            First impression of this product is not high. Packaging was very poor and damaged.

            Great product

            If you need to relocate your oil filter to say, make clearance for the exhaust when installing a turbo, use this part. Don't bother with the other type of filter mount that moves it to the fender well. The one I got always leaked. I installed this mount and haven't seen a drop of oil since.

            I currently have a 351w swapped 90 Foxbody with an On3 turbo kit and had to use a microscopic oil filter. Although it did do the job, I wasn’t comftorable with it. This 90 degree adapter made it able to run the MASSIVE oil filter and it cleared my hot side piping. I now feel super happy with how it came out.

            This item now makes my oil filter more accessible and makes my oil changed cleaner by dropping the oil further form the block and oil pan

            Perfect fit

            With my turbo setup was almost impossible to change filter..this made it so much easier

            Already bought 5!

            These 90 degree oil filter adapter is good for engine swaps... But I've used them for a different reason! On my '94 GT, it moved the filter out of its tight hole, and pointed it forward. It made filter changes a SNAP! Neater too. I also put one on my '95 V6, also pointing the filter forward. On 3.8s, it stops old oil from filling up the front crossmember and wire loom every time you change your oil! It's a permanent mod, that WORKS - and makes your life easier, and your Mustang - and driveway, CLEANER!! It fits all 5.0s and 3.8s up to 2002-03, when I believe they went to the same metric filter as the 4.6. EASY to install. ~ Carmine
