    How are these filters with the Tacomas? Any issues? Previous users feel confident?
    I know they have the anti-drain back valve, so that issue is covered.

    My father sells these filters for NAPA. I have been to all the demenstrations and I've been sold on the fact that they are great filters.

    There is no one technology that the other company can't re-produce. But for the time being, you would be hard pressed to find a filter that is better!

    We could even do a group buy and I could get you all a sweet deal if I got enough people interested!

    They are compatible with full synthetic and natural oil

    They are fiberglass media, meaning the inside filter isn't paper, it's fiberglass and they have a high burst rate meaning a higher capacity for holding dirt better and more of it!

    I'm not to sure about anything when it comes to K&N... They are a racing brand, and by this I mean:

    K&N air filters claim to let in more air than most aftermarket and OEM filters out there. They are NOT lying... Their filters do let in TONS of air. This means that the filters are porous. So not only do they let in more air to your engine, you're also getting more dirt.

    Like I said, I'm not to sre what the OIL filter claims to have, but I'm sure they stick with their racing theme throughout all their products.

    Just go with NAPA gold!

    All NAPA Premium filters are GOLD filters... They do make them for Tacoma's...

    If you have a question about any one in particular, get me a part number and for whatever vehicle it's for... and I'll let you know ASAP what the difference is or I'll be happy to answer any question you have.:D

    That number is not a Wix/NAPA Gold filter, It is a Beck/Arnley filter. B/A is an expanded import line of parts, and they do carry some filters, 90% of which can be had in the regular NAPA filter lineup for less money.

    you guys like the mobil 1 filter too?

    I guess Napa gold filter is good too. But is cheaper? why?
    isn't quality costs more? dont get me wrong i love the price... but sometimes you get what you pay for!

    That's not always the case, there are always exceptions to the rule. ;)
