I'm not sure. Isn't the oil filter in the wrong place?

Looking at the port spacing, I'd say that may very well be an aftermarket aluminum 3800 (GN) setup. RWD has the oil filter in a different location.

Look at the uneven exhaust port spacing. That'* the first thing to look for in a GN or Turbo Regal.
