Canister Filter on Gen VI BBC

All,
Can a Canister type filter system (Canister/PF 141 filter) be made to work on a Gen VI BBC? From my research, the mounting boss for the filter looks to be different on the Gen VI block. I am putting a Gen VI (ZZ454) in a 1967 Camaro and would like to keep utilizing my old trusty Canister.

I doubt it, it's a completely different setup than gen iv. The oil filter stud screws into the block. The bypass is pressed into the block instead of being in the housing as well.

Re: Canister Filter on Gen VI BBC

You can run something similar to the old school canister type, both of my cousins dragsters have these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SOF-209-512561/Which you can remove the canister, inspect, clean filter, and re install. I'm sure you can find one cheaper one cause $164 is alot of dough for that set up, I just posted the link so you could get an idea of what I'm talking about.

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.
