effects of wrong oil filer?

Hey just wondering what might happen if the wrong oil filter is put ona car. I have a nissan skyline and i put a 300zx twin turbo oil filter on. The filter fit, and the car runs with it on, but could i possibly be doing any sort of damage??

I would change as soon as possible. Some times they will seal correctly and then all of a sudden the gasket blows out.

Other things are checks valves and such.

If you have the brand and part number of both filters you might look in the cross reference section of a filter catalog (usually in the back) and see if they are equivalent.
