Toyota, in their infinite wisdom has decided to discontinue the 90915-20004 oil filter :eek: and replace it with a 90915-YZZD3 that is made in Thailand.
There is a limited supply of 20004's left. I suggest you stock-up if you like them.

I think some of us have already gotten something from your country, Mike, and we unfortunately can't get rid of it...

I would imagine that properly stored it would be quite some time, a few years anyway.

I plan to stash at least 30 for myself. I change every 3k miles, that will get me to 200k.

This is the same filter for the 3FE right? Just bought one last night, I'm anxious to see if I can tell the difference.

With that kind of interval I don't think you even need a filter ;)

So the YZZB5 becomes the good filter???
There is the T(u)RD filter, it makes you go faster. Add that to the T(u)RD oil fill cap and you will add 25hp to the 1FZ :flipoff2:

Actually the YZZB5 is also being replaced by the 90915-YZZD3.
