Both the oil and the filter.

Do you know how to do that? There may be a how-to on here if not (though the pics might not work if they were hosted on Photobucket).

There ya go!

Ecotecs are really nice and easy to do oil changes on. Before I put the M62 on, it took me about 5 minutes of actual work - the rest was waiting for the oil to drain. Even now, it only takes a couple minutes more, it's just a blind operation for the filter - I've done it so many times, I don't need to see it anyway.

The supercharger certainly made it more interesting, although I only had to do two oil changes after the install before I blew it up haha

Yeah, you just need a few extensions. The filter just barely squeezes between the blower and the core support, but it fits.

Its insanely easy on the saab though haha, I swear there's more room than I ever had even with the stock l61 intake manifold on the g5

I actually use an axle nut socket for the Durango to get the cap off because it's the right size and fits no problem. Can't seem to find the socket for the filter cap anywhere haha
