      Yeah. Someone said Ryco filters are no good. I use them. Don't think you have them over there. I'm still not convinced genuine is better though. What do you guys think/

        Looks like a winner to me. ...though charles is the only one i know on this side of the pond that uses those. The non-cali US models use a different filter.

          Looks like Toyota believes in toilet paper filters:

          http://groups.msn.com/toyotasurf/gen...o&PhotoID=7437

          That filter is $38.00 from the dealer here. I just checked.

          Almost time to head up to Costco for another 30 'filter elements'...about $18.00 with taxes. :banana:

          So, why do we call it a "Diesel" when he didn't invent it?

            Heh! I knew you would like that filter 87-2LT :D

            They are slightly cheaper at my local Toyota dealer...last one I bought was about $32Cdn after taxes etc...still pretty painful on the wallet.

            I'm still looking for a local distributor of the Hastings LF151 clone thats 1/3 the price.

                WIX oil filter vs. Toyota vs. Toyo vs. Terrain Tamer

                Good Day.
                I've used the Wix filter from Napa. It fits my Townace with the 2C-T motor and the Prado with the 2L-TE engine. It still cost $24.51 + taxes with a discount from Napa. It has a smaller volume, is physically shorter, definitely has less filtration area and I'm not sure if it's 2 stage filtration like the Toyota or Toyo filters.
                4WD Automotive in Edmonton now sells the 'Terrain Tamer' brand of jobber filter made in Australia for about $34. It looks the right size but weighs a lot less if that has any relationship on quality.
                I have all of these filters in my possesion to compare.
                Hope this helps.

                    Pricey Toyota here sells the genuine one for $38.00. Why bother with cheapo knock-off?

                        I'm in Victoria. How about you? I don't think Lordco has anything that fits a JDM import, or what exactly are you driving?

                          WIX # 51368 oil filter

                          Hi.
                          The WIX # 51368 from Napa at $24.50 is $13.50 cheaper than the Toyota one for $38.
                          Or about $9.50 cheaper than the 'Terrain Tamer' at $34 from 4WD Auto in Edmonton.

                          Yes this filter fits both my Pardo and the Townace. The thread is the same 24mm diameter x 1.5mm pitch. The original 'Toyo' jobber brand filters that I use (TO-1214M for the Townace and TO-1216M for the Prado) are only different in height by about 1-1/2" or so.

                          Not 100% sure of the internal relief valve / bypass specs on the WIX filter though. It seems to work fine. If anyone thinks I'm going to do my engines harm, please let me know.

                              wix # 51368 oil filter is $13.50 ( before tax and shipping) through AMSOIL. This is not the first time they are way cheaper than the other guys. i got hosed through Piston Ring on a wix fuel filter for my Terrano- paid about $60 bucks for it and amsoil has it for around $20!!!! i already buy all my oil and diesel additive through amsoil and looks like i will get my filter through them too...
