I now understand your username.
Reread your first sentence. Are you a toyota engineer?
First off, are there any disadvantages? Don't think so
Second, the larger filter holds more oil = a little more dilutution.
Third, larger filter = less resistance. After 7000 miles, do you really think the stock filter is still flowing at the same rate with the same pressure as a brand new one?
Forth, they are the same price.
