TRD Oil FIlter

I recently bought two TRD oil filters from trdparts4U.com. After opening and looking at the filter I noticed that they look just like the K&N filters with the wrench bolt on top. Does any one know if Toyota bought the filters from K&N and just slapped the TRD branding on them. They look like they could be twins.

FYI: The TRD BBK is a Stop-tech BBK rebranded.
good info
