Question Toyota Oil Filter

I understand that there is a Toyota Oil Filter that can be used on the Elise. My Toyota dealer stocks the following Celica GTS filter for the 2ZZGE motor:
Part # 90915-YZZF1. Is this the filter that can be substituted for the Lotus one?

If you don't mind mail order, here's where I found the high quality original filter.

Mechanical sympathy makes us better mechanics and better owners. Ducati dry clutches .... I just don't get it.

there's a TRD filter also which is better. I don't remember the # off hand.

** save ~10 lbs gain 1 hp ** EQ: Y=(190*X) / (1984-X) where Y is (HP) and X is (lbs)

Checked that oil filter # with my local Toyota dealer (90915-10004A) and he says it has been superceded by 90915-YZZF1 which he has in stock and is used for a lot of different Toyotas including Camrys as well as the Celicia GTS.

This is Toyota of Canada so does this part number jive with anyone else's experience?

Thanks. Looks like the Toyota 90915-YZZF1 is OK to use.

Yes that is the correct part #. I have already put one of those in and just bought another one for my next oil change.

Was at my dealer today picking up a new set of brake pads. Since I was there anyway, I asked for an oil filter. What he handed me looked EXACTLY like the 90915-YZZF1 with the exception of a painted Lotus logo on the black can. The white-colored Lotus filter is no longer available.

It appears to me that Lotus has adopted the Toyota filter as their OEM fitment for this engine.

I believe the Toyota filter has always been the Lotus filter.

FWIW, the 10004 P/N looks identical to the TRD filter (maybe the media is different?) and both are made in Japan. The YZZF1 is the cheaper Thailand sourced filter and may do a good enough job.

Denso makes the Toyota filters and you can source the Denso non-Toyota branded filters (P/N 150-1001) for a bit cheaper than the YZZF1 (http://=http://www.densoproducts.com...3058&pid=13962)

The old style white filter is very different from the YZZF1. I cut both of them open and every component is unique: Media, drain-back, bypass, everything.

As to which design is better, I really don't know. I'll post pictures of both at some point.

Deleted info. Sorry I had posted about the air filter but this thread is about the oil filter.
