Alright, I am chainging my oil and took the filter out and didn't notice if the hole side(non valve) of the oil filter goes toward the cover side or engine side. Anybody know? Thanks for the help

The oil filter should only go in one way, the opening in the center of the filter should be facing you when tou install it. There is a small "wing" inside the oil filter cover that will slip inside the oil filter when you install it.
