Default Help... oil filter mount

I'm screwed. First oil change. Factory had the filter on so tight. Filter wrench didn't work...crushed the filter. Tried the screwdriver trick.....tore the case so bad still tight. Finally got it off but due to my efforts, there is a gauge in the mating surface. I need this truck for a 400 mile trip tomorrow and oil is spraying out between the basket and mount. I need help fast.

Fixed my frustrated, angry spelling errors.
