The manual says 12.9 ft/lbs torque for the oil filter. With a swipe of new oil all over the rubber seal before spinning on a new filter (I use KN303) I've never had problems getting the filter off when I apply the factory torque recommended. I'd buy an inch-pound torque wrench, 0-200 range, set it to 155 in/lbs, and you'll not have problems getting the filter off. Just my experience....
