    Hey guys, I have a quick question for those that have used the TYC Cabin Air Filter as a replacement on a 2nd Gen (Part # 800038P). The filter has a marking on it of an arrow with the word "UP" next to it. Since it is specific to the tacoma I think it can either mean "UP" as in the direction of the filter or it could imply the the arrow is air flow and up is labelled incorrectly for the tacoma since air flow would be down.

    Any insight before I bolt this up?

    Being specific to the Tacoma, I would imagine "UP" would refer to the direction, rather than the airflow.

    What does it look like compared to the original unit? Do the pleats make sense oriented that way?

    They look identical both ways.
