Default Oil Filter Cap

Ok so here is the deal i have used possibly every tool to get this thing off. i almost took a brass punch to it to get it off. i broke two of the tools made just for this and couldnt find anything else to fit any ideas out there for this stupid filter cap. Any help would be appreciated

If you have big channel locks, use those.

theres a few things you can do, if theres room tap it with a hammer to help break the seal, heat the seal with a torch, just be careful not to get it too hot cuz it is oil and it is combustible, or put a screw driver through the filter and use the post to get leverage, but be very careful not to damage the threads cuz taht will cause another headache. when you put the new filter on dont use your wrench to tighten it, hand tight is fine good luck
