Oil port, 302, before or after filter?

Hi Everyone,
On the SBF, there is an oil port right next to and in front of the oil filter on the left hand side. Is this port before or after the oil filter?

Thanks,
-Andrew

The out is the offset port and the in is the center. Out into filter outer and in through the center

No, I mean the 1/4 npt threaded port just forward of the oil filter. Is that located before or after the filter in the oil system?

That is usually the oil pressure sender port.

Yes, that one. I have my sender attached to that one.

But the question is this:
Is that sender port located upstream of the filter (as in, reading the pressure between the pump and the filter) or downstream of the filter (as in, reading the pressure that the engine components see after the loss in the filter)

Put another way, if an oil filter becomes clogged or the element fails, does the oil pressure go down (because sender is downstream of the filter, the oil is being blocked by the filter, so there is less pressure to the sender and engine components) or does it go up, (because the sender is reading pressure before the blockage)
