    Are you sure you have an S14 ECU and not an S14a one - seeing as you have a 96 S14?

    In case you have an S14a ECU, I've attatched the giff that Phil Morrison and Ben Taylor did ages ago.

    Oil filter! grrr

    Here's a quick bit of genius with regards to removing really stiff oil filters!
    join together 2 40mm jubilee clips (or 1 that fits already) and place over the filter. do it up tight using a ring spanner, but obviously stop before you crush the filter!! when its tight place a screwdriver over the screw head of the clip, and smack with a mallet to your hearts content! which will gradually loosen the filter. keep undoing, repositioning and tightening clip, until filter is loose enough to undo by hand! awesome
