Oil filter adapter for 1996-2004 Mustang

I was wondering....
05 and up comes with a 90 degree adapter for the oil filter, that points the filter towards the front of the motor.

Could we buy this adapter for New Edge and SN95's? Would it make oil changes easier? Would it be worth the cost??
.....Would it fit!??

Why? What's hard about changing the filter the way it is?

tell me about it! i just changed my oil today and forgot hoe much of a PITA the oil filter is. i feel like the ford engineers finished building the motor and were like "oh $hit we forgot an oil filter, let's just put it there." same goes for the manifold to mid pipe bolts.

That's my complaint, besides being in a bad spot!
Look under any '05-up GT hood, and you can see the filter can be changed easily and neatly.

.....so, any news on the filter adaptor for older Stangs???

try changing oil on a 4.6 thunderbird they knew you'd spill oil all over the k member of the car so they made a special valley in it and spout so that the oil you where gonna spill would flow down to the center of the k member then off it.

I use a folded piece of cardboard to direct it out and off the rack!
