What do you mean by standing up? It's an upright flat four, not a boxer. The main difference changing its angle will make is to the amount of transmission fluid you need to fill. See the discussion about engine angle toward the bottom of this page: 020 Oil

I'm running a bug transmission so all good there. The stock 8v engine angles towards the firewall in a car. The adapter plate I have can be used that way or clocked like I have it with the block straight up. The guy I got it from raced it that way for years. I'm just curious if I'm going to have oiling problems.
