oil filter with arrow header and coolant res question

hey all,

im trying to change my oil for the first time with my arrow header installed and its been a huge PITA...a 30 min job is going on 1.5 hours right now =/...anyway two questions:

1. how did you guys get the filter off without takign the header off (im using a k&n with the nut on top but the stupid 17mm wrench i have doesnt seem to be biting it

2. i pulled the upper hose of the coolant res all the way out when i was trying to move it...where do i route this hose back to? i cant seem to find a nipple it could have connected to

TIA everyone!

The hose to the coolant res goes to the coolant fill cap on 07+, should be the same for you. You should get the M108 Mobile1 filter, it is short and should help for your next filter change. If the filter is hitting the headers, you might have to pull them for the change.
