It could also be the vanos oil line I suppose...you try tightening that? Also, make sure the inside of the oil filter is clean...and also, I don't think this matters, but make sure it has it's o-rings at the bottom of the filter cap.

OFHG is a simple repair...and a $10 part. For $1300, I'd drive to Dayton, do it, take you to dinner, and drive back!
LOL. Yeah, I can order anything off the $1 menu for dinner, right? The new cap had all the o-rings installed, including the two green one on the filter stem. I will try to tighten the banjo bolt on the vanos line and double check the o-ring on the cap. The groove is pretty big so it not hard to put the oring in the right place.
