Default FWI installed

installed the FWI with a bit of help tonight. one of the screws wouldnt stay in so i went to home depot and bought some new screws, washers, and a nut that was a bit longer. im extremely satisfied with it.

heres the pics (i only took three, no need for more]:

will the base of the filter rest on the round part that it goes through? or does it just fall through on the 00+?
