Never had an issue with that method.
That's because it equates to the torque printed on a Champion Aerospace filter.

I asked an oil filter test engineer and he said (and I looked at the test standard) that the test protocol requires the pulsating oil leakage test to be performed at 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 turns. He said they all pass the test.

So 3/4 is good, golden in fact.

Just let your oil get warmed up before full rpm in cold weather. You probably do anyway.
