Oil filter relocate kit

Has anyone installed an oil filter relocate kit? I use the zip lock bag and rag beneath it trick and it works "ok" but it would be much more simple if I didn't have to stand on my head to change it out.

Tagging on for info.

I also want to relocate the oil filter. I think Amsoil has a kit, just started researching though.

I bought a kit from JC Whitney for a Nissan Sentra. I got tired of reaching up under the intake manifold for the filter and having the oil pour in my ears. I ran stainless tubing between the old mount location and the new mount location, along with a pressure gauge and drain valve. It looked reasonably cool for a Sentra....but in the end it was still just a Sentra. :-)

So...how'd it work?

I just did the stand-on-my-head oil change and I don't want to do it again.

I'm ashamed to admit that nearly a year later, it's still on the to-do list...
