95 Camry.The oil filter is around 4" from the pre-cat.This day,when i checked the filter,the decal was kinda curled up and sorta burned. Should i do a remote filter setup?

+1. You know those unmodified dam Camry engines buring up at 300K miles... I wouldn't worry.

Can't get any hotter that the oil touching the hot surfaces inside the motor. Plus there is a constant large flow rate thru it.

The oil filter on the WRX is less than 0.5" from my exhaust manifold. Suffice it to say I'm sure my exhaust gets hotter than a Camry's exhaust. I'm not worried.
