    Hello everyone I was gonna do an oil change soon and was thinking of using a K&N oil filter this time. I was wondering if there is anything special about these oil filters like if they give better gas mileage or hp or anything at all. Any comments are much appreciated thanks.

    I havent heard anything good about K&N oil filters but the fact that they are pricey. I've always used the Toyota OEM filters.

    Since when do oil filters give horsepower or better gas mileage? Like just throwing anything with a K&N logo onto your truck will do that?

    Anything that says K&N will automaticall add 15hp as long as you put on the sticker.


    On a more serious note...the only good thing is the nut at the top. Thats it. OEM are the best quality

    I read on another Toyota website that moving your oil filter to the other side of the motor helps it stay cooler, easier to change, and lets you run a bigger filter for better filtration. It is kinda like the air box/battery swap for 22RE motors.
