Why do you want to remote mount your filter on an inline 6? It's not easy to get to now?

I'd put it somewhere that you couldn't burn yourself.I put one on the firewall and placed my arm against it and burnt it.Those oil filters get hot.

Took a nightmare of a system off someone's car recently. The filter was mounted upside down so when you removed it, it dripped all over everything. Hoses were twisted and it leaked. I say forget it, it ain't worth it.

There is no advantage to it for your application, only disadvantages like having a hose blow and loosing all your oil and your motor, and them maybe spinning out in your own oil.

They are only used on race cars where clearance is an issue or when dual filters are needed, my buddy has to run one on his turbo ford because the headers are pointing forward and run right in front of the stock oil filter mount location.
