    Grunt calibrations can vary, apparently

    there is no way my oil OCD would let me run that filter. get a new one and like someone here mentioned get a piece of sandpaper and use it for grip but in reality it only has to go about 1/2 turn once seal touches. the rubbers on them are not like the old filters that need a turn to be "tight" these new gaskets are harder and seal up in less rotation.

    Turds will put a cheap filter in the K&N box. when you get home you will have a Fram instead of a K&N.
