Thanks for spaming my thread FrankReece.
Anyway haven't been on here for a while, got a promotion at work & my 2 year old son both keep me very busy.
Still found time to chop open a few more filters, this time another genuine Toyota made by Denso in Japan off the 4AGE (LH), genuine Toyota made my Denso in Thailand (CTR) & Fram Extra Guard (orange can of death) (RH). As you can see Fram Extra Guard lives up to it reputation. Very low build quality, less filter media & thin metal can. Avoid using them if you can.
Also cut open a WIX 57145 I ran on the 4AGE a while back. WIX are my favourite aftermarket brand readily available here in NZ. As you can see they are very well made & have a nominal micro filtration rating of 20. Most genuine filters are only rated at 30-40 microns!
I'm currently running a WIX XP filter on the Altezza with Motul 300V 5W30. I'll be cutting that one open soon then I've got a TRD filter to try & that will be getting opened up as well. Wouldn't mind getting my hands on a Purple Royal filter at some stage too. Subscribe to this topic for updates if you're interested.
