Yes. TGMO 0W20I usually do Mobil 1 syn oil and change my filters every 6k and change the oil every 12k . I’m doing extended service . I know Toyota has a extended service program for synthetic oil . I do like and have run the TRD filter just for the overkill factor , If I’m going threw removing my skid pan crap I just do the better filter .
Any one know if the Land cruisers 5.7 come filled with synthetic oil from the factory ?
From 08-11 they were recommending 5w-20. in 2013 they went to 0w-20 for gas mileage purposes to meet CAFE standards. In the book it says 0w-20 for increased mileage and better starting in cold weather. I don't know of any differences between the 3UR-FEs in the 08-11s and the 13+.
Just to keep things real .. I own 5 turbo cars … if the bearings in the turbos have less resistance u will get a slight increase in boost.. at least on precision turbos .. wtf would I make it up ? I’ve been doing research looks like amsoil signature series is the top choice on oil .. I’ve read their filters are awsome tooJust to keep things real here, there is no POSSIBLE way that engine oil could cause a change in boost pressure. Not. Possible.
I would strongly recommend 0W-20 full synthetic - just like it says in the manual:
As far as brand goes, the TGMO (Toyota Genuine Motor Oil) you can buy at your dealer is probably the best available. Not as cheap as Mobil 1, but worth it, IMHO.
Note that the Manual states that 5W-20 is for one-time emergency use only when 0W-20 is not available, and must be replaced with 0W-20 no later than the next oil change.
Good old big government and EPA.Where are you seeing this? I'm looking in my FSM docs at the US manual for my 2008 (appears to be same version here: https://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om-s/OM60C95U/pdf/OM60C95U.pdf ) and it lists 0w-20 as preferred. I understand they listed different weights for the same engine in other countries, say what you will about why that might be. But it appears they were recommending 0w-20 in the US.

5W30 like recommended ROTW for me.Not sure what you are trying to convey here, but Toyota TGMO is not the same as Mobil 1.
As best I can determine, Exxon-Mobil is a toll manufacturer for Toyota. This means they manufacture the oil here in the U.S. and add Toyota's proprietary additive package to bring it up to Toyota's specs.
Check the label on the TGMO bottle:

Particularly this part:

My understanding is the oil is the "domestic" component while the additive package is the "imported" component.
However, since neither of us works for Toyota or Exxon-Mobil, it is just conjecture. Both Mobil 1 and TGMO are excellent oils - I just prefer to go with TGMO. Your money, your vehicle, your choice.
Seems like Toyota would tell you this if it was a concernThe filter housing on a LandCriuser has a perforated support tube to prevent the OEM filter from collapsing.
If you use a TRD filter which has a perforated support tube built in, should you remove the perforated tube from the Landcruiser housing? Seems to have both in place with the TRD filter only complicates the oil passage ways.

The TRD filter isn't intended for the Land Cruiser, AFAIK it's intended for the Tundra TRD, which uses the same engine, but presumably doesn't have this additional piece on it's OEM TRD filter.
Please report back. I'm using Amsoil signature, I'd love to see how the filter does.I’m going to try the amsoil filter .. that guy has a lot of good info on Toyota’s… Ive been running trd since I got my lx .. had zero problems with trd filter . I just want to see how the amsoil filter compares
