I know the vertical oil filter wont fit the low mount turbo where the exhaust comes out between cylinders 2 and 3. But what about where the exhaust comes out between 3 and 4, will this maniford fit a vertical filter?
I have a 4BT here with a vertical oil filter and low mount turbo, CPL0767, I think. The turbo is angled upward toward the front, putting the intake ducting above the filter housing. I believe this manifold was commonly found on engines that used a Ford trans.
I also have the 767 and had the same clearance AND TURBO tilt with original parts. When i changed to an HY35W and it's 4" air intake line that all changed. The vertical filter mounting flange was in the way. A low horizontal filter mount will most likely clear a larger intake hose like the HY35w.
