Thanks! If anybody else knows any other specs, feel free to drop 'em here!

Also, anyone know where to get a proper cup oil wrench for the 4.7 filters?

Here's one for anyone that might need. The 4.7s use filter #289571 which you need an 86mm 18 notch cup filter wrench for and torqued to 30 nM or 22 ft/lbs.

Engine is 9.5 quarts of oil (QPower/Pennziol Plat Euro/Mobil1) 5w40. Aside from Mobil, I've found the others aren't readily available for that weight at most parts stores.

I am a fan of Ricambi but $80 bucks is steep. I got mine from Ultimate Garage for $35

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.

I can also confirm that the filter wrench from Ultimate Garage is a fit for our filters and half the price of ricambi!

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.
