    Here are some pics, before I added a blower. The tow package has an oil cooler.

    A Ford Motorcraft FL1A will also work.

    do you throw that filter on for shows. I can't imagine why you would want to paint a new filter every six months

    I buy 3 or 4 filters at a time and paint them all at once.

    I do like a clean engine compartment.

    Great ideas, I'm sure the Toyota filter is whoefully insufficient. Better run out and buy a filter spec'd for another Brand.
    There are however 2 different sizes available from Yota...

    Great news, I happen to have the FL1-A filters which from my research is a good filter. I like using a larger one whenever I can.
