Typically the filter is 1/4 turn past when the gasket meets the block. How would you determine the torque when tightening the oil filter anyway? You using a K&N with a nut on the bottom?

Thanks, I don't like to just snug if I don't have to. I've been torqueing oil filters on motorcycle for the last 9 years and have had very good luck with them. I know hand tight is okay, it's the oil pan drain plug I worry about.
Thanks for the help.
