Search for some UOA's that have been posted on here or at bobistheoilguy.com if you need some comparisons. I run the M1 filter and M1 5w-30 with great results. My UOA is in this forum somewhere if you need it.3fj40 said:Yep, just went with an M1-102 filter.

I'll send the oil in for analysis on this new-to-me 100 and we'll see where any issues lie. I'm generally not that anal as you know, but it will give me a good place to start. Let's start with the fact that I had to use a breaker bar to get the oil pan plug out and smash holes in the Fram filter on there to turn it off :O
The M102 is small. The M209 is larger, has the same specs, costs the same, and fits I've been running the M209 on my LC and my buddy has run the M209 on his Tundra for 150,000 miles.3fj40 said:To kick a very redundant topic.

Robbie, you're right Toyota's `official' statement is that it meets their warranty req's which in it statistically will get you to the end of the warranty I'm guessing.
M1 filter # is M102
