Are you running AC? The bracket for the compressor is the only thing I really had to make the return line snake around.

If you're not running AC that location will work. It'll be questionable if the compressor is still in place.

I had the machinist put it in there, and now I realize that I fucked up and now have to fix it. God damn it!!!

Any thoughts on trimming the AC bracket?

It also looks like the oil-temp sensor is going to interfere with the engine mount too:

oh yeah, this is starting off well.

Since you posted an adorable picture of two cats, you must be a woman. Most women never check their oil, and therefore it is probable that your oil is low.

fixed and qft. even if you give them a fancy car that tells them on the dashboard how much life is left in the oil, and then says "change oil soon" as the time approaches, followed by "oil change required" as she goes over the interval, and while beeping and flashing the "oil change required" message as she's driving.

But I'm not bitter. I absolutely adore having to fill up the tank and change the oil every time I get in the car she took from me.

I cant tell about the oil fitting that well, but from what I can see it looks hella far back.
