So there are 2 versions of the oil filter housing.

One has a plastic piece with a ball on one end that snaps into the housing. The other end has 2 O rings. I have heard that this is supposed to be replaced at each oil change.

There is another version with a decidedly more complex looking part in the middle, and it doesn't seem to "snap" into the filter housing.

How is the newer one installed?

Will it fit into the "old style" aluminum oil filter part on the engine?
