At the risk of sound like I dumbass, I'm going to ask this anyways so flame away.

How much oil will I lose removing my filter without draining my oil?

I'm running a remote filter with an anti drainback but the adapter is leaking at the O ring seal on the remote adapter on the block.

I only have 300 miles on an oil change and would rather not drain it all. I also don't want to wash my driveway with oil.

I hate the adapter I am using because it has an O ring that tends to leak but with the 460 conversion I haven't found a better one that allows directional manipulation along with an oil temp port. The adapter is a 2 piece which lets me spin it on and then adjust where the in\out oil ports point.

I wouldn't mind a different adapter but I still need a place to get accurate oil temp reading and I''m not going back to trying to stuff a stock filter in there.

As long as you didn't just get done running it, then you should't worry about it much. If there is any that comes out, if at all, it should be very little.

Let the engine set a while if you just ran it, take it off and all that will come out will be in the filter already. I would say you only lose about a half a quart when you take the filter off. Start with that, then add a little more if necessary.
