STP oil filters suck, I had it on the 1jz and it did not hold pressure on start up. about 1 out of 5 trys, i would hear a knock for a half second or so on start up. Ive switched to a Bosch Filter and i have not had ANY problems since.

DO NOT buy STP oil filters.

I use TRD ones... I know it's a waste of money... but it makes me feel good.

I didnt know you were supposed to change oil filters.. once every 2 years is good enough right?:)

I use K&N because I like to pay more money for a name.

My bosch is 4.99 and seems to work great. The STP 2.99, made a definate knocking sound on start up. STP = no good.

just use oem toyota filters or event the Mobil 1 filters. much better than the stp, fram, bosch etc. not worth saving a couple of bucks using cheap oil or filters IMO.

I can get Amsoil filters for less then the TRD filters and they are better.

If you're interested contact me via EMAIL.

aperently the new toyota filters are shit.. the ones made in tawian.

They have less then half the amount of paper in them for filtering... My parts guy here tested the two.. The japan ones are the only good ones.. Other then that go with puralator
