Re: Blowing oil filter gasket (Scirocco61)

Not a good idea to put a higher pressure oil filter if you're having oil pressure problems. You will lose lubrication if you have too much oil pressure.
Is the oil filter pressure relief valve failing? Stuck closed?
Sounds like your oil pressure regulator valve is also stuck closed or failing, giving you the high oil pressure.
