Coolant and oil bypass mount...

I've already got the Sinister coolant bypass mounted in the engine compartment. I'm planning on getting the NUC oil bypass in the near future. I want to mount the oil bypass with the bracket provided which attaches to the alternator. Is it possible to run both of these in the engine compartment. I've seen a couple of threads that say you can't but I believe I saw someone on here saying that it can be done. If anybody has done this could you please post some pics for me.

I have seen it done.
I have also seen where someone mounted the oil bypass filter just inside the grill with longer hoses. They said they did it to help with oil cooling.

As work&play says, I have my coolant filter in the engine bay and my oil bypass filter behind the grill.

Here is the coolant filter:

Here is the oil bypass filter (I did not need "longer" lines than what came with the kit):

Of note, it is true that there is greater airflow at the grill so there is a cooling effect but it is a bit disingenous to claim greater cooling with a bypass filter...if there were a radiator included in the line perhaps...without a doubt the oil in the bypass filter cools but that is about 1-quart in 15 (or a bit more) so the "benefit" is negligible - realistically about a decimal of one degree.

The discrete positioning makes exchange of each filter easier (in my opinion) than having both so close to each other...of course, these don't get changed often anyway.
