it looks pointless. The stock oil filter location on the fc is the best location i've ever seen a filter located. My old 88 MX-6 was a bitch, it was located behind the block next to the exhuast pipe.

You really shouldn't be spilling any oil anyways. Just drain the oil before removing the filter, and at most you should get a drip or 2 while removing the filter.



and use your ******* space bar.

the trick is to puncture the oil filter with a screw driver while the oil is draining out of the pain. But just simply draining oil before you remove the filter makes it less messy.
