Hey guys,
I have a Comptech hi-flo filter and recently have removed my resonator. This afternoon, I found a rather large spot of oil on my driveway (6"x6"). I'm thinking it's the oil from the filter because the resonator had lots of oil stuck on it. Anybody else have this?

it could be. my k&n filter for the aem cai also drops quite a bit of oil when first installed. as long as you don't see oil some time later i think it's ok

I had some oil on the plastic undder the cai when i installed it, could be your filter is just dripping a little excess oil that's all. Don' worry about it, but kedep your eye on it. Also, is it coming from the filter area. Park you car in a spot, leave it there for a little while, then look underneath without moving it and feel the plastic to see if that is where the oil is coming from.

Hey guys!
Thanks for all your help. We finally figured out that it was my friend's WRX that was leaking the oil. He took it to the dealership last week for an oil change. Careless mechanics didn't tighten the plug!!! He took it back today and they tightened the plug, topped off the oil and apologized. I told him that you always have to double check to make sure people do their jobs correctly.
Thanks again for all your replies!
Peter.

Woopty do for his Subaru. I was just about to post that if your filter is leaking that much oil you need to send it back. BTW the K & N oil is red and is easily distinguishable but I don't know about the Comptech filter oil.
