    The factory offroad wheels from my 2009. Wheels looked like crap, but had new rubber on them. Not making much money on them at all, but I need them outta my garage. Ironically they're picking them up in a white 4 door Tacoma as well. Hope they show, FB Marketplace can be a crapshoot sometimes. Meeting in the grocery store parking lot for good measure...

    I was waiting.

    But that was his call. Besides....it's a cartridge filter. Nothing to mess up. No can to leak, no ADBV to mess up. At least the Fram cartridges have end caps....even the cheaper Extra Gaurds do. That's more than can be said for a lot of the supposedly "better" ones.

    If you're looking to stick with a 20w....check out the M1 EP 5w-20 (what was in my pic). It's a nice heavy 20, coming in at a 9 at 100° C. 30 weights start at around 9.2 or so.

    I'm on the fence about non-oem cartridge filters. I can pick up the 'Yota ones at the dealer with the drain plug washer for $7. Gonna be nice now that both my Toyota's take the same filter.

    I don't normally sell stuff, but for something like that I figured it was a good idea. Too much "stuff" in my garage for prying eyes. Now when I sold the S10 on there it was a little different. At that time I could snoop who the person was and they were actually a friend of my co-worker and lived locally.

    Morning, kids.

    Been snowing here constantly for 2 days. ZERO accumulation. It dusts up then melts. Net result gray and soggy. Putting christmas away completely. Football. You know the drill.

    :cheers:

    Cartridge filters are a little different animal than spin-ons. There is much less to worry about. Cut open a spin--on and pull out the media. Boom you have a cartridge filter. In cartridge filters, the Fram Tough Guard has been my choice. Good filter, nicely constructed, good price and available everywhere.

    In the spin-ons I still like my Ultras though

    @Delta09

    This is why I prefer the Fram Tough Gaurds and Ultras catridge filters over OEMs. The Frams (even the cheap Extra Gaurds) have end caps to help stabilize the media.

    Hmm, the premium XG9972 looks interesting enough though... Might use one in the Camry, but the Tacoma probably not. Gonna do the first change myself at 5K and let Toyota do it at 10K. Sounds crazy letting someone else touch it, but ehh.

    Not gonna fret about the 0w20 in there either. Looking like Valvoline Advanced Syn 0w20 is the top runner for me.

    Thinking about using it in the Camry. Pennzoil Platinum was too noisy, but the current fill of Castrol Edge is nice an quite. The 2.5L is a noisy little bugger! Valvoline quieted the 3.7L in the Jeep and even the 4.0L in my old Tacoma.

    Just out of curiosity, would it be better to knife-edge the center web? Seems like it would flow better than a more blunt rounded edge. (asking for a friend)

    Had keys for the garage side door sitting in the bay next to it with the deadbolt striker for two years, saw them about a month ago. You’d think I could find em now to lock the garage now that hubbys moved up? NOPE. Only place I havent looked (hard) is the 55gal trash bin out there so might as well dump it out and start fishing.

    I saw an article many years ago about head flow from one of the NASCAR engine gurus. Very very interesting. Ideally a flow bench is what is needed however two things that stood out.
    #1
    Really smooth ports doesn’t necessarily mean more flow.
    #2
    Sharp things in a air flow don’t help.

    if I was interpreting what I read right I took it as the only way I can explain it
    Is a airplane wing flows through wind around the surface accelerating the upper surface.
    If it was sharp it could actually “cut” the air flow disrupting it and add a pocket of dead air behind it.
    Then it hinders the flow.
    Some turbulence is necessary for mixing..

    On Edit.

    I smoothed sharp edges and rounded over bumps and matched the mating surfaces. Opened them up slightly. But without a flow bench etc you can hurt the flow doing wild stuff. I know what I did helped. But, I stopped before I went to far..

    Thanks for the knowledge sharing, I ended up grabbing M1 EP 0w-20 and a M1 filter with an end cap.

    Haven't changed a cartridge filter since we sold the corolla 4 years ago, need to dig around and find the wrench. Hoping it's the same size...

    We were going based roughly on the pictures of the upgraded aftermarket turbo header that this new turbo was port matched to. I'll try and find the pic so you can see what we were recreating roughly.
