Oh, I'll be ticked if that's the case since I just ordered mine. Our filters are 86mm with 18 notches, correct? I didn't see our filter number on the UG website but I did find somewhere else online that our filter was 86mm width with 18 notches so I figured it would be satisfactory. Grrrr
My only concern with pliers/strap wenches is the bright yellow bold lettered warning on the filter box and filter that says must be tightened to 30 nM which you can't measure with hand or pliers. I'm used to giving a filter a good hand tight twist and calling it a day but Maserati makes it seem catastrophic if not 30nM.
Can't find torque specs for much of anything else on this car but the filter its specified blatantly.
Yeah I caught that as well. 60nM is a massive amount of force for a simple plug. DaveRocks, can you double check your data sheet? I'm hoping we can get a good source for torque figures at least for the basics....oil, calipers, misc bits needed to check belts and such.
