It took me about 30 seconds to loosen mine, Oil Filter strap wrench, Now I have the K&N Oil Filter that has the nut on the back of it, so it will e even easier next time.

When I did my first oil change the filter was really on there tight. I advise against getting a normal oil filter wrench , at least the kind that is bare metal to take it off. I went to sears got a set of craftsman strap wrench and went at it. Took me some 10 mins but it came off.

just go on the k&n web site, and enter in the srt-4 search by car function... it'll list the filter there for you as well as other Srt-4 specific products from them

I used a rubber strap wrench on the factory filter... by the time it was off, it was crushed pretty good...

they sure put'em on tight..

other than that, this is one easy, accessable filter....

A chain link fence post strap with a socket extension works just as good too. I found that out one night after mangling the oil filter on another car with a strap wrench and then made it worse with a screwdriver. (Anybody tells you to use a screwdriver, don't do it!) The post strap works in a similar fashion as the strap wrenches, but doesn't tighten up when you crank on it. It took all of ten secs once I put it on the filter. Occasionally may need some duct tape sticky side out for some filters. Has worked well for a few years now on multiple cars. Makes me wonder why some people think the filter has to be on so f'ing tight! :eeeek:
