OR---It's a bad filter.
Or---There's a holed piston
Or---There's a piston that has melted down on one side because the shrouding 
that goes under the jugs wasn't replaced---Don't ask me how I know that one.
Or--Perhaps the car's just in dire need of a ring job, and there is 
excessive pressurization in the crank-case.

Happy Hunting

Subject:  Excessive oil pressure at oil filter

Had friend call me to look at an oil problem on his Vair. Oil was sprayed 
all over the engine bay and investigation showed a new Clarks oil filter 
cocked to one side and the seal as sticking out. Appears that the pressure 
relief has stuck.
Any one had this problem in the past?  Lots of work ahead.
