    My drain plug and oil pan have a factory paint mark so I just line those up and it's quite snug by then. As for the filter I just twist it in until the 2 seams are touching and then go a touch further. Remember with the filter housing you're using plastic threads so you don't want to giver her too much ass.

    None taken, and I'm not saying I would never use a torque wrench. If I were rebuilding an entire engine, sure, use the specs. But for these things it just isn't necessary, IMO.
