Default Plumbing question

For those running a downpipe along the pass. side of the engine.
Are you running an oil filter relocation adapter for clearance?

Here is mine with stock flange, hell it fits better than it did with headers. These are the best pictures I have. The downpipe is routed behind the filter flange.

Thanks for the info. I've been watching the site for a while, finally starting to get into my turbo build on my lemans. I'd like to keep the ac, but I'm not sure how well thats going to work. I'm glad to see that it is possible to get a downpipe to fit around the factory oil filter and housing.
