    True that -- putting a TC filter on an EVO makes a bloody mess of things! I know! Had it happen on my 918ST, puked oil all over the place for 2 days before we figured out what it was! (Wrong filter in the box!)

    Do you want to purchase and install new filters every time or do you want to reuse a cleanable filter each time?
    Just another option:
    OIL FILTER CLEANABLE CHROME SPIN ON FOR ALL BIG DOGS
    [​IMG]
    Kit includes canister housing, mount plate, seals and cleanable element.
    Filter down to particles as small as 2.56 microns and has an intergral magnet placed in the element. Replacement stainless steel or paper elements are available separately.

    Been using one like this since 2006 on my Mastiff.

    What torque value do you use to tighten the filter, or what did the instructions say about torque?

    I have a K&P filter and am planning on going back to the 170-c next oil change.

    I still offer the K&P on my website at a discount.
    A variety of finishes are available.
    The S4 fits the Big Dogs.
    Check it out.

    me too! It comes with no instructions, I have never torqued a oil filter, first hand tighten as I do with the K&N no leaks, but noticed leaking and tightened with wrench and got a little better but still weeps

    Just checked K&P install instructions and they recommend 18 to 20 foot pounds torque.
    this might be why some are leaking. I know they were talking about another brand but still may be the reason. Evidently "hand tight" doesn't cut it with the reusable units. The link to the instructions below is from K&P.

    Generally hand tighten then another 1/4 turn with the filter wrench and you're good to go if you don't want to break out the torque wrench.
    I have never had an issue with the K&P.
    Always clean and re-lube the gasket before reinstallation.
