Anyone put that plastic adapter thing in oil filter?

Ok.. Here is where I think I messed up I put a STP filter in my truck when I changed the oil the other day, (they were out of motorcraft) so they have this adapter that snaps into the center of the spring assemble in the oil filter area. (center of the center) WTF is this for? Did I need to do it?? Instructions said that I had to- Noticed the truck kinda chugs a little on first start (maybe a lil paranoid) lol. Oil press is mid needle, which I think is a lil higher than normal with fresh oil HELP... going nuts Thinkin of changin the filter again in a day or two but

Well I have no knowledge of the STP. But I've never heard of that before. Most non Motorcraft / Racor filters provide a cap with the filter to correct any abnormalities. Never had a problem with the Wix / Napa filter. But I have purchased a few filters for comparison and am going back to the Motorcraft / Racor filters on the 6.0. Does the STP filter use the stock cap?

I know what your talkin about, was changin the oil on my buddies truck and he had a lubrifiner filter that had the plastic ring. I went ahead and stuck it in since the directions told me to but I was kinda skeptical. Needless to say the trucks still runnin but on my own truck I think ill stick with motorcraft only. So what I was wonderin is next time the oil is changed with a different brand filter does the ring need to come out????
