    More cylinders and especially more stop and go shorter oil change intervals.

    Lab values aside, in the real world I run full synthetic with the largest factory spec filter I can find in all my vehicles. Currently use the Mobile1 M1-301 oil filter, holds an extra .5 qts of oil (for a total of 7qts) and has a lot of filter media inside for extended oil change runs. Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic for the last 150k miles. Have been changing at 10k miles or annual intervals, whichever came sooner. Last 4-5 years, have changed annually with only 5k or so miles driven. Had a BMW 525i go 455k miles on synthetic with 10k changes (sold it to a friend in Cali). My Tundy is at 256k. Wife's previous SUV (GM) went 188k before we sold it with no leaks, smoking or issues. Son's Mustang is at 178k miles, purrs like a kitten. Wife's current car and daughters car (both Jeeps) are over 100k with no issues as well. That covers all the major brands and every engine configuration out there with no issues, and long life on full synthetic at 10k mile intervals.

    I just finished up the oil change. I went ahead and removed the skid plate, It came off easy and quick. Overall probably the easiest oil change i have ever done. the oil didnt look too bad and still had color. not sure what kind of cheap ass filter they put on but it was way shorter that the yzzd3. I checked the air filter and it looks good to me, see pic. I noticed a lot of my wire and vac hose plastic retainer clips are crumbling. I did a few temp reattachments with zip ties and taped up a couple areas where the plastic wire covers were gone and exposing wires going to the maf sensor. Cleaned up the skid plate real good before putting it back. was going to repaint it but i didnt have enough blk rustoleum to do it,this time.

    Something odd occured after drain and fill. I started her up and ran for a couple minutes to check for leaks, none found, then shut down and dipped the stick to see that it appeared slightly over filled and above the top dot on the stick .I put in 6.4 qts. when i discarded the old oil, it only filled up the 5qt jug. I barely spilled that much oil transferring it.

    So should i be concerned that i over filled it or more that it probably ran a qt low for a few thousand miles.

    Mine always takes 6-1/2 quarts + or - a bit with a genuine Toyota filter. Park it level tonight and check it in the morning and see where it is. With the oil in the filter and residual oil in the drain pan, you probably had closer to 5-1/2 quarts drained out. Probably nothing to worry about and you can't do anything about it anyway. You have a good baseline now, so you can see how things go from here.

    Probably under filled by prior goofy oil service tech. Your truck will love you for putting on the proper Toy Sized Filter. If you did over fill, easy enough to drain it by lightly unscrewing the plug and let it drain around the threads of the bolt. I like my oil at the high dot on the stick.

    I always put in 13 quarts so I can double my oil change interval.

    I just put on a 301a. My engine is much louder, lifter tick, and start up pressures are noticeably higher. not sure if I like all that paper. Makes me nervous, not sure I can last 5k on all that noise.

    If it doesnt saturate the paper and flow smoother, might have to revert to the mini can or toyota factory long before this 301 is due for replacement.

    I haven't used the YZZD-3 filter, but the M1-301 is big. It takes 7qts of oil to fill instead of 6.5. I've not noticed any change in engine sounds, certainly no lifter tick, no change in the pressure compared to the smaller filters I had used before. I would be worried if that were the case. I'm on my 4th oil change with this filter. I was previously using the Bosch 3422, also an oversized version of the 3330 for these engines. No issues with that one either.

    What mileage does your truck have on it, and why change now from what you’re currently running? I do agree with running a high mileage (maybe it’s snake oil, lol)
    Adam Carrolla had one of the main guys from Joe Gibbs oil on his carcast podcast a few years back, and was talking about high mileage oil having extra zinc added, which helped, especially in older engines.
