The filter base that Berg sells has the inlet/outlet coming out at right angles 
to the axis of the filter, but I worked out a nice plumbing arrangement that 
requires the I/O at the top. Last time I ordered one, he just said that if I'd 
wait a couple of weeks he'd get that style base in and sell me the kit with the 
base I wanted. That worked fine.

I mount the filter base to the rear mount crossbar. This lets me plumb the 
whole thing on the bench and install it with the engine. It ends up as a really 
neat installation, and the hoses are kept short, too.

I think I also have to buy some fittings that he does not provide, but that's a 
small point.

I bought one of his pressure relief pump covers, too, for the car I drove here 
in the winter. That engine is now in Mike W's car in NYC. For summer cars I 
really don't see the point. The way I see it, if I get in my car and start it 
up cold and try to drive 35mph down the street in 1st gear I deserve to blow up 
my oil filter. That may actually prevent my damaging the engine any more.
