If you want to be a true pimp, you'll get the Scott's brand filter. It's re-usable, and the "cap" for it has a nut on it too.

+1, nut should be used for safety wiring if you need it. You should never tighten an oil filter on so much that the nut is necessary for removal.

Also, FRAMs blow. Worst filters made.

OEM filters or K&N are the best.....actually I have ran Emgo through the years and when I cut them open, they look VERY close to the oem filters, the valving is a little different though....>Stay away from the rest, Fram, Wix, STP etc.....thats all cheap junk....
