When your at your local parts store ask for a 94/95 cobra oil filter. They had the factory oil cooler and the filters were about an inch shorter.

I run a motorcraft fl 910. It bolts right on and gives me plenty of room.

I still have the on3 alt bracket. I didn't use it cause I relocated mine to the driver's side. I have the bracket and the tensioner arm, but i no longer have the bolts or the spacers. If you would like it, feel free to pm me.

this is my 1st 5.0 and i went to my friend local shop and he said the reason the short oil filter wont fit is because it has a oil cooler,my car is a ssp.
