Even though I see the C word, it doesn't look bad. Looks like their old Thailand blue cans. The one thing I don't like, why the nitrile drain back valve? They used to use an orange silicone.
Yes, I donít care for the Nitrile ADBV either.
Look at those huge louvers. Toyota has always valued flow over efficiency.
There so big they are holes.
Robert: thanks for the c&p and all that you do here
Youíre welcome as usual and right back at you.
I meant to point out earlier:
Though externally it looks quite similar to the Toyota OEM filter which is made in Thailand vs China, beyond the tapping plate and perhaps ADBV not much appears in common. The can is slightly taller and not shaped the same. The media and bypass are completely diffrent.
This filter was in the $5.00 range.
