Great advice. Someone on IWSTI has a possible turbo failure and it likely won't be covered under warranty due to lack of receipts.

On the FB engine the oil filter is inverted and on top of the timing cover on bank 2. I pull and swap the filter before I raise the vehicle to drain the pan. Since the filter is up-side down there isn't a dribbling mess like you get with an EJ block.
