Oil filter wrench

The K&N filter has a nut welded to the filter housing.
No special wrench needed, and it's cheaper than OEM :D

I bought a cup filter at walmart for $2.50. Bought the smallest one they had. It fits perfect.

I use the strap also. Fits well in tight places. $6 at the auto parts store.
I've been using the rubber strap wrench, medium size f/ Sears. Been working OK, tho I haven't liked the fiddling around w/ it to get it positioned and snugged just right to prevent slippage. I hand tighten the new filter w/ reasonable firmness - I'm not very strong, anyway. This spring when I changed filter while getting rid of winter storage oil, the damn rubber strap actually broke trying to loosen the filter. I'm going to try a different wrench, either the metal one pictured here (that Spke posted):

or the cup one. Probably will try the Spike one first. But later, when I use up my inventory of oem filters, I might switch to the K&N with the bolt end.
