The Blue base Oil Filter you removed is NOT anything I've seen for the 2GRFE Engine.
That may also explain why there was no oil plug sealing ring, and the missing bolts. The collapsing pleats is usually associated with the oil pressure crushing the pleats, from dirty clogging, or excessive oil pressure. That one looks VERY dirty.

The OEM filter is the GENUINE-TOYOTA-OIL-FILTERS-04152-YZZA1, and looks like this:
Genuine Toyota Oil Filters 04152 YZZA1 Case Qty 10 | eBay

The TRD #PTR43-00082 is the correct one, and is stronger with the metal end caps, and has a finer filtering element.
