Default RE: lst air cleaner and exhaust, facing the wrong way?

It really shouldn't matter. The engine sucks air in through the filter regardless of which way it's pointing. Air is not forced into the filter, there is no forced induction. It is a natural aspiring engine and the air gets drawn through the filter by the suction of compression in the block.

Actualy, having the filter point towards the rear of the truck might be beneficial for cooling the engine. On other trucks, the filter is directly in front of the cooling head which actualy blocks cool air from running over the cooling fins. With the LST design, there is no obstruction in front of the cooling head, which should make for a cooler running temp.
