NON leaking oil filter?

I have a oil cooler installed to aid in longevity of the supercharger and i cannot get a good oil filter that doesnt leak, can anyone tell me what they use that seems to work well with the oil cooler, since the threads are different then the factory nissans threads. currently the valvoline VO 40 is installed and it will be fine until i park it, then it just seems to leak out what the filter holds.

What happened? You used a filter with the wrong bypass PSI? Or was it an actual seal problem because of the dia.?

it was a seal problem with the valvoline, i actually tried 3 of them, because i couldnt believe it was from the filter, we use them at my work and i even use the VO 40 on my SE-R sentras and they dont leak. if you were driving the car around it would never leak, but you would park it, and it would leak everything out of what was inside the filter from the seal. so initally i thought it was the cooler o ring or coming from the timing cover.
