I tried that today. You'll get most of the oil out and 90% comes out the back drain. But I decided to see what would happen if I jacked up the back end... more oil came out. Probably about 1/2 quart.

Anyone else get oil coming out of the top of the filter cap when you pulled it off? Kind of annoyed me since it spilled some oil. I also had a lot on the bottom of the filter housing and sucked it out. I took about 1/4 quart to replace it.

My drain plugs were a BITCH to get loose. I had to improvise. I'll get a proper secket next time.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
