That's exactly how ours is right now and it still interferes.

I was also going to suggest 90 degree hoses
but if that hasn't worked for you
You might try a oil heat exchanger intended for the Ford truck.
Ford F150 F250 F350 5.4 6.8 heat exchanger F8UZ6A642HA
(the oil lines are located on the side of the heat exchanger)

Oil Cooler Ford F150 F250 F350 Super Duty 5.4 6.8 heat exchanger F8UZ6A642HA | eBay

dimensions are in the PDF

All the parts are ordered and are on the way, but it could take me a couple weeks to actually get it finished. I'll take a bunch of pics and get a nice easy way to take care of this problem.

Maybe the filters are a different size but our lines are above it, protected by the rear of the engine x-member.

I think I've got all the parts on the way. I've tried a few different solutions laid out on the garage floor and this is the one I've settled on. I think this will work assuming the oil filter has a backflow/check valve built in (Wix 51515xp). It's a super simplified drawing, but it gets the point across.

I dislike hose clamps on line that may see the high side of 75 psi. That must be counter balanced with hard lines getting crushed by impact from below. In the field a crushed metal line is junk. The hoses can be re worked, or even stolen from a heater core circuit to get the leaking part bypassed.

I suggest the highest quality rubber line dedicated to oil cooling and the style of clamps that completely encircle the hose with a smooth, snag free clamping face.

If you are setting up a bypass system anyway, have you considered doing an Amsoil dual filter bypass setup?

I looked into it. They don't offer anything "off-the-shelf" that fits. They did say they could put together a kit that would work, but the cost was far more expensive than the parts I put together. I'm not sure if it would be worth the extra investment.

That makes sense. It sounds like you have a good solution worked out.
