Looking at the 90915-1003 vs 90915-yzzf2 and I came across this site. Interesting to see oil filters from Europe and Asia. http://sparex.livejournal.com/4369.html

I use Mahle, Hengst, Bosch regularly but have used JapanParts and BluePrint a few times.

Been many years since I used a Champion.

All look decent quality to me, but my knowledge is limited hence why i stick to names I know to have a good reputation

I find it interesting that only 1 or 2 (brands) have wavy pleats...Wavy pleats turn me off a filter...The overall quality of most of them looks very good...

Nice, somebody put some serious time, effort and money into that effort! That Ecofix looks somewhat like an ecore.

Nice find, thanks for posting.

Looks like they have more good filters than we do here in the USA.

The filtration media in the OEM Toyota filter was quite different. I have never seen a filter like that before.

Also, did you notice in the other Toyota filter, that the ends of the pleats were not sealed? Am I missing something here, or wouldn't that be a major bypass point for unfiltered oil?

I picked up 3 of the OEM Toyota filters. Going to run one next and see how she looks after.

I've dissected a few Toyota filters like the one you're talking about. The ends of the pleats are sealed with glue, it just looks like they aren't in the photo. And yes, if they were not sealed it would allow dirty oil to bypass the media.

I like how the BIG filter, the one with Cyrillic all over the box, is made in Glen Rock, NJ. USA

No, it' not. BIG is a joint Israeli-Russian company. Many of these small companies try to make a big deal out of the fact that they use some American (Japanese, German) technology.

Although, some of the presented filters look decent, the design of the OEM filters is cleaner and nicer.

Big Filter

The company appears to be based in St. Petersburg. The NJ address is a limited liability entity formed in 2009 that is basically a mailing address.

I believe you, but why would a joint Israeli-Russian company need a mailing address in NJ?
