Making my steering, exhaust and oil filter all work together was a nightmare.

I used the Cobra intake to allow the engine to mount as far rearward as possible and the engine is mounted low for a low center of gravity (and to accommodate the Cobra intake)....the result was cutting and welding the exhaust, replacing the oil filter mount with an adapter (Moroso Remote Filter Adapter 23681). My steering rod is very close to the adapter as it is. One of my pictures shows this mess.

Got a built lightning motor I was gonna put in my 4x4 f150 but after the local track opened up again I'm wanting to shoe horn it into my 280z that's been sitting. I know it won't fit under the hood with the S/C and being a 5.4 so I'm hoping to pick yalls brains as well as the others that have done this swap.
