Heres to hoping my filter hasn't been torn then, because I surely didn't 
pre-fill it. Also, I ordered my filter from sjm autotechnik and it came 
with the washers taped to the bottom. (Well, the silver ones. The copper 
ones I reused.)

Anyway, thanks for all the help, it easy to replace and also seems to 
have alleviated some of my throttle-lag issues as well. Gonna go give 
her a spin around the neighborhood to be sure.
