While the engine is upside down for the installation of the oil pump and oil pan, now is also a good time to install the oil filter mount. This is a mount I picked up from Bradley Auto Parts, which has no bypass. Stock engines use an oil filter bypass to allow the oil to keep flowing even if the filter gets clogged or the oil pressure gets too high. This isn't the best option in racing. A mount without a bypass makes sure all the oil goes through the filter. Just make sure to use the largest oil filter you can get so that it will have plenty of capacity and keep it changed regularly.
