Default Positioning Pump

Has anyone had issues mounting their brew pump sideways? I don't mean the pump head. I mean mounting the pump itself to a plank of wood and then mounting the wood 90 degrees onto a brew structure?

This is the only good way I can mount this onto my ad hoc brew rig. I have the center inlet pump and the the outlet will be oriented upwards.

I am worried about cavitation or other issues. Thanks.

I have mine mounted 90* in relation to the brew stand, no issues.. as long as the outlet is up to let air out..
