That's my experience also, but the S2000 filter prescribes 7/8 of a turn once contact is made, and I could only muster nearly 6/8. I perhaps wouldn't normally worry, but I'm conscious I'm going to asking a lot of the car at the weekend so want everything just so.

Thanks again for all the replies/offers

Playing "Bet your engine" for some reason? This topic has been documented every month since 1999... Hand tightening won't do it properly on this car with the OE filter.

Tool is $6 in USA and probably the same elsewhere. See my earlier note.

Then you are chancing a filter coming loose and throwing burning oil all over your exhaust manifold.
Honda spec is to tighten to contact then 7/8 more turn. If you can do that by hand then good for you but I doubt if you can. with an engine that revs to 9000rpm there's a lot of harmonic vibration that can shake the filter oose.
Mine is ALWAYS tightened to spec and I have a filter retainer fitted, I think that's far better than risking £Xk for a new engine or even the risk of a fire write off.

Just so you know mate, I bought this exact tool due to your post and also on the Tegiwa site it says something about s2k's using the Mitsubishi tool, anyway, it's arrived and it's waaaay to big for the OEM s2k oil filter?

Have I been sent the wrong one or...? If not, it's deffo the wrong size!

That's weird man, I've just messaged them to find out! The one I have is about 84mm external OD (?) We shall see!

Way too much hassle going on here, install new filter with rubber coated work gloves, can get 7/8 of a turn no problem at all. Then simply tighten your filter stopper. I only ever used the tool to undo the filter.
