    What you’re running now is perfectly fine. The oem filters can usually be found for a lot cheaper than the K&N and filter just as good.

    In all seriousness. There was an update to the forum a few years ago. Most of the changes were in fact improvements. The search feature took a nose dive though. If you want to effectively search this forum, go to google and type "site:tacomaworld.com, {what you want to search}" and...

    I'm sure they all do a fine job, OEM seem to be a decent value. I wouldn't get too worked up about finding the "best"

    Synthetic media and tougher construction will allow longer oil change intervals.

    OEM or literally any other name brand works if you are just sticking to 5k changes.

    I run a Fram ultra 3600 for 10k with a quality synthetic.
