Neither did I. That is until I took out the A/C and P/S. Now oil changes and spark plug changes are a breeze.

Why do you guys torque the bejeezus out of them? I just put them on as tight as I can twist them on. Wearing rubber gloves while working on my car definitely helps get a solid grip on the can.
the regular mechanics tighten the **** out of them after they have had one fall off

same here, tighten by hand, but getting off is the harder part.

Another word of advice stay away from WIX and Moroso



I had a Wix filter burst at a measly 70 psi oil pressure on the dyno once, and the moroso filter might as well be a coffee filter.

I cut all my filters open, I got me that nice tool. It looks like a huge can opener,but its anodized green I have seen never any thing like that in an oil filter. I can tell you what color rags you used while building your motor though
