So far we know this.
Fleetguard - Fleet service heavy duty filter
Baldwin- Fleet service heavy duty filter
Bosch- good over the counter filter
Mann- decent filter not the best specs for efficiency but well built
Fram- Orange can of death, one of the worst on the market.
OEM-Toyota black can not made by Mann, Low quality filter
OEM-Honda low quality filter paper end caps, cheaply made
OEM-Madaz decent filter good for 5000k oil changes
OEM-Nissan white can, total garbage, foam filter media thin cardboard
Nissan- made by Mann, decent over the counter filter 5000k use.
Mobil1-good over the counter filter
K&N - good over the counter filter
WIX- above average oil filter heavy duty construction.
OEM-Ford (Motorcraft filter) Good over the counter filter
ACDelco-None Ultraguard and Duraguard are of very low quality
OEM-Hyundai-good OEM filter
VIC- Very cheaply made, restrictive bypass valve, poor filter media
Union-Decent over the counter filter, basic paper media 5000k Change out
JHF- Decent Koren made over the counter filter 5000k use
Fil- lable says (for) Toyota, red and white box, Yellow lettering on filer, undersized filter media, bad bypass valve cause filter to recirculate unfilterd oil.
Fil-Fram Koren version. same issues. Steel on steel relief valve fails to seal, leaves dirty oil circulating.
Toyota (Denso) Japan, has on average fewer pleats for fitering vs other filters. Example MANN has 60 pleats vs Densos 29, vs Frams 59 in the same size filter. Very short life filter.
