    Thease filters are on our C32 Cats that run at 1800 rpm, we wash and reoil them every 500 to 750 hrs. They are a hi flow filter and not the most efficient for filtering fine dust and would be bettor off in the basment of a hospital not on a ship transporting taconite. If you want hp then your going to eat a little more dirt. Oh and the wine/whistle frome thease is almost unbearable.

    @Pudge if ya go with with a washable one, I would get another that way when it's time to clean and let "air dry" all these other brands say to let air dry naturally, that way you have one ready to go, just my OP

    I see they have the WIX for $35. Maybe I should spend a bit for for a reusable?

    I honestly don't know why anyone would use any Gauze type of filter anymore when there is so much information available. In fact, if I look at any bike/car that has one when i'm looking to buy, that vehicle is now off the list.

    Anyone that has spent any time in a dusty environment with one of those knows what i'm talking about. The do flow really really well, but that's the problem, they flow so well they let crap through. Spend a day in talc dust with a K&N or any gauze type filter (oiled correctly) and you'll find a film of dust in your intake tract that got past the filter.

    If you want "cool" then get one, but if you want to save your cylinders, use Oiled Foam or Paper.

    I like wix too. I will probably go with that. If I go drop in I'd like a oil-less one like afe dry. But Idk if it filters as good as a wix. I only drive 8-10k a year so reusable may not for me

    i wouldnt use K&N garbage either like others said... just get the factory part, no need to reinvent the wheel here. they are like $20-30 bucks.
    just my experience...

    I requested an engine air filter from the dealer parts counter by vin (non-flex fuel). the part he handed me was 17801-0P100. This does not have the white cover over the filter element.

    the one i removed out of the truck (factory) was 17801-09020 and it did have the white cover thing glued to it. i just used the dealer provided part (7801-0P100).

    i see some online vendors stating 0P100 replaces this...

    I went with OEM from my dealer. I get a lot of maintenance parts from the guy and he always gives me online pricing. In store the air filter is 27.99, on line from their store is 21.60. He's a nice guy and always bullshits with me when I go in. Nice to have these small connections.

    Funny you should mention these. I just replaced the filters on These Detroit Turbos with Walkers. Do it every year regardless how they look. Walker sends them to me automatically every year on May 20th.

    It is mostly marketing hype concerning air filters. Actual measurements & testing indicate OEM or equivalent is darn near optimum for flow & dirt capture ability.
    eg:
    http://nicoclub.com/archives/kn-vs-oem-filter.html
    https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/airfilter/airtest1.htm

    I havent actually bought a Tundra yet, tho' very close to it ... on my other vehicles I've preferred filtration products from Baldwin or Wix ... their build quality , especially for "sealed can" style oil filters, is superior to typical OEM.
    I dont think it's applicable to Tundras, but many models of sealed-can oil filters rely on an internal anti-drain valve, to eliminate the first 1-2 seconds of low oil pressure during startup. Baldwin & Wix is the only ones I've found that consistently have no leaks (mouth "blow test"). Common retail brands like fram & purolator are horrible.

    I'm also pretty sure NAPA "gold"-series filters are re-branded WIX ...

    I put the new filter in today. I was surprised that the old one wasn't really that bad. Truck just rolled 30k miles and idk if its been done so I just did it. Good piece of mind for $22. Maybe I'll see an uptick in gas mileage as some have reported.

    I simply put the regular STP air filter in. Costs about $15. Will change it out at every oil change. But I will go OEM next time with the Denso air filter.
