Default STi Pink Oil Filter

Hi guys,
I've bought a STi pink oil filter.

On the filter is written to tighten 1-1/6 turns after gasket makes contact.
Does it mean I have to tighten it 1+1/6 turns? I'm afraid to overtighten it, the stock filter goes maximum to 3/4 of turn. Please give me advice...
thanks

Use you're best judgement, if alot of muscle is involved to turn it.. you have turned it too much, at the same time it shouldnt be able to easily be spun off. I have done atleast 30 oil changes on my own cars / bikes and never followed the "turn this ammount extra" rule.. make sure to lube that gasket!
