LS swap corvette reg/fuel filter

Hey guys, dumb question, can the corvette fuel filter everyone uses for their LS swap be mounted anywhere on the rear frame rail ? Are there any restrictions on where NOT to mount the filter or forbidden angles?? I would like to mount the filter on the rear frame rail that's on a 45 degree angle if you will. Thx

I put them on the vertical of the trunk pan directly above the tank.

Frame rail will work you just have a longer return line.

That's exactly where I put mine. I didn't want mine on the frame rail because of the longer return line and also it would be closer to the exhaust. I am paranoid about leaks and if it leaks where it is now there is a reasonable chance I will detect it before I have a fire.
