No. Try hosting it on Photobucket first then post it here. It's free. Google it.

Ok actually im not too sure if it was astock one. I would guess so cause it says "this vehichle comes equipped w/ a non disposable air filter" but like i said we bought it used from a CAR LOT not a dealership

I know this is an old thread, but I have the same Borla reusable filter. Toyota of the South East installed these and Borla exhaust on a lot of their trucks under the XSP option. My Borla filter is also melted some around the rubber frame of the filter. Last time I checked I noticed that. I didn't remove it, but left it in, it was stuck in there basically. I'm going to replace it with a stock or a K&N filter. I think it is a manufacturing defect on the part of Borla. The engine hasn't gotten that hot, it just looks like the rubber frame is really soft.

PLEASE do not use K&N. Those POS filters most likely cost me a engine. See here for reference.... http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/new...ml#post8363871

I'll just get a paper filter then. That's cheaper, but I got to change the more often, but probably better in the long run. Is Fram okay, I want to stop by the Auto Zone and not go to the dealership.

After seeing the inside of their oil filters I stopped using Fram.

I got a 10pk of Wix online for dirt cheap.

You are the OP that keeps on giving...you may want to switch out that air filter sometime soon.
