Blew a hose off last night
It wasn't pretty. I installed the remote oil filter kit from Summit a week and a half ago. Ten minutes away from my house, a hose blows off, my oil guage dives down and the check guages light comes on. I didn't know what had happened, but I figured it was the hose. I pulled over (at 9:30pm) and oil was all down the underside of my car. I called my mom to bring a hose clamp and a few quarts of oil. (I had some in my trunk). She brought me the items needed, and I fixed it and now it's fine. I really want some stainless braided lines now. Oh and I busted my knuckle on the metal reinforcement bumper bar pulling the hose back off. I had put it back on until my mom got there so no dirt or anything could get in there. I yanked on it and it popped off and I popped my knuckle. It's swollen now. Oh well. This morning on my way to work I saw my oil trail. You can see exactly where the hose blew off to where I pulled over at. Just thought I would share.

Don't use a standard hose clamp. Those can shred the hose and they get loose real quick. Go with a fuel line clamp that doesn't have those slits in it.
