   Looks like got to use M6080-A50 90 deg. oil filter adaptor to clear engine mounts on circle track race car.Any body know if this will significantly harm oil pressure/flow in 7200 rpm race application,we are running high vol. blueprinted pump.This a 351W OEM block as required by class rules.
  Might be able to fit shorty oil filter,have thought about the Wix 51335 short filter.Any better  suggestions greatly appreciated.           Thank You

I don't know how restrictive it is, but it is a factory piece. It was commonly used on vans. Being factory equipment, I'd assume that it flows pretty good.

I can tell you that the short oil filters are more restrictive than standard length and mid length (Mopar). I actually use the extra long F-700 filter.

I'm sure you could get the die grinder out and do some modifications if you thought it would help, presuming you've already done some on the block itself for the oiling system?

The FRPP version was never used on vans.  The van one was completely different, although it did the same job.  I opted for the OE version that I got out of the junkyard for like $2.  It also has provisions for oil cooler fittings, FWIW.  Got mine from a '78 or 9 van with a 460.

I have one from a 90s van that looks identical to the FRPP version.

I believe that there is a different one used on V8 Explorers that uses a metric filter.

Are you using the stock 351w main diameter or going to the smaller Cleveland journal?

  We are running the spacers that allow the 2.75" mains,they are a must for sustained operation over 7000 rpm.

Do you mean the M6880 A50, if so I have been running them since they came out from SVO.  No problem with a HV 8800 rpm 302 and have the same on 9.5 Dart 412 in son's but only going 7400 through traps, But engine bearings after 3 years were put back in!

Before that I was using the econoline one and no problems.
