    From BITOG, the Purolator made Toyota branded 'G2' filter variant. There's a video posted in the thread.

    https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/threads/virgin-toyota-oil-filter-90915-yzzg2-cut-open.332583/

    I've been using these since my '15 was new. The dealer used them for the ToyotaCare duration, and I bought half a dozen to get me through the warranty period.

    I consider them superior to the Denso made filters which have a reputation for less than stellar filtration. This media is likely somewhere between the standard Purolator variety and the Pure One. It's OK, not great, but the best feature of the filter is likely its thick and sturdy can and very well designed O-ring. It also has a silicone ADBV.

    That said, when I'm out of these I'm switching to the WIX 51348. That's a known good filter with published beta ratio.

    Wait, the motorcraft FL400 fits the 2nd generation 4.0 engine?
    I'm a ford dealer tech and will be very happy if this is true.

    The cross reference is FL-910S.

    The FL-400 has a higher bypass valve setting.

    Will it fit, yes. Is it a good idea? Up to you.

    Motorcraft oil filters are generally contract made by Purolator.

    The 90915-YZZG2 which is what this thread is about is shorter than either and interchanges with the Denso made D1 (or Wix 51348, Fram 3614 variants, etc.).

    The longer filters will not work on my 2TR-FE equipped 2015 Base. There's something in the way.

    FL-910S is the YZZD1 equivalent smaller sized filters. either the FL-400 or the FL-910s will work on the 2.7L or the 4.0L if you research them
