What brand of filter are you using?
On my 6.0 i always use motorcraft filters and have never had one come out twisted. But im a heavy duty mechanic and work at a shop that fixes big rigs. A few of our customers own 6.0's and they bring them to our shop to service them. Unfortunately the shop i work for insists on using some no name filter(comes in a white box with no brand on it) and everytime i change one it comes out twisted. When i service a 6.0 at work i install the filter the same way i do on my own truck...the only difference is i use motorcraft instead of a no name filter. So im assuming the twisting of the filter is due to it being a junk filter.
Ive mentioned this too my boss a few times and he doesnt seem to care. Im just waiting for the day something bad happens to one of these trucks and the no name fuel filter that twisted is at fault.
EDIT - Now if you come on here and tell me you are using motorcraft filters then everything i just said doesnt apply and ill truly be surprised.
