I wish the 2.7 in my wife's '11 Highlander had a spin-on filter---I don't get the point of a cartridge filter. But it is a great engine; 128K miles so far and no leaks, no oil burning, and nothing but oil and filter changes and a set of plugs.

I agree. They are vastly under appreciated as most go for the V6. I had the 2.7 in my Ď96 Tacoma. It was a strong performer and I could haul full loads with no worries.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

That looks like could be new version of the factory Japan filter made previously. Has the silicone valve. Rare bird in the USA. Good to see, I can appreciate the mess involved in cutting these open and taking pictures. I got oil on my camera last time.

Good to know. Iím planning on buying a Tacoma in the near future and was debating on which engine to get. I donít tow anything or do much heavy hauling but I was concerned the 2.7 might feel underpowered.

I can't imagine it would be any/much different than your Frontier
