Exclamation Rough idle issue solved via TSB sticky!!!

As per the TSB in the 2.5L turbo section I removed the oil feed bajo bolts to the top of the heads and sure as ***** the small oil filter in each side had fallen partially obstructing oil flow. Followed the TSB and can say that it is easily done in less than a half hour. A little finesse and some small tools were able to remove the filters (you'll see what I mean). Rough idle solved, seems to pull smoother to redline. I reset the ECU as well, maybe that also was a factor. HIGHLY recommended as it is an easy fix and there is already one report of these filters disintegrating and ending up in the valvetrain.
