Diselsite coolant filter

This isn't really a dieselsite specific question, but that is what I am installing. In the instructions it says to route the hose to the "IN" port on the filter base. None of them are labeled "IN" or "OUT"?
There are four ports on the filter base and they are all straight shot to the filter. Does it really matter which I use for the in and which I use for the out and which 2 I plug? Because of my cold air intake I can't do it like the picture in the instructions shows.

So basically it doesn't matter which port I used for what right?
(I've got pictures if I need to post them)

Thanks

Anyone? Does it matter?

I'm getting ready to install it. I don't see any difference in any of the ports, so I'm going to do it the way I want to.

i think it does matter because of the way most housings are made.if you look at the manifold it should come in and hit the outside of the filter and then pass through the filter and leave from the center of the filter.this is how all manifolds i have ever seen are designed.guess i should have given you this info on the first post,sorry.

Well there are two pics on the website, the older style and the newer style and there are no specific instructions as to an in or an out on the website or the paper sent out with it.

Here are some pics of the one I have.













This is ho I planned on doing it because of the stuff under my hood that is in the way. Otherwise I would just run it in from the right, and out to the left. You think this way will be OK?

Actually, you're right, I just looked at it again.....the holes in the front and the top do NOT go to the same place the two outer ones do

It looks like the holes in the front and the top both go to the outside of the filter, and the holes on either side are the exit from the center of the filter.

The way I have it set up will work as intended, I'm glad I asked though

I was so focused on the damn housing itself and where to put the hoses, I wasn't even thinking about the bigger picture about the oil filter and how oil is routed through one

Thanks guys
