Oil filter relocation (on3)

Hey guys, quick thread to grab some attention to this. Where are people mounting their filter relocations? Id like to do it on the frame right by the horns, but how would i secure it to that? I dont think i can get a nut and bolts on that because its a hollow square. How are people mounting these?

I actually have rivets, ill probably go that route, then maybe change it up later on. As long as i can hit the dyno ill be happy lol.

Are longer hoses bad for the motor oil pressure wise? i thought i heard once that closer to the stock location the better, i could be completely wrong though lol

It shouldn't matter as long as your oil pump is maintaining proper oil pressure in the system.
