Fram, just because I got a whole lot of them lying around. :D I bought quite a few of them when my wife had an older model Camry. That car used the exact same oil filter as my 4.1 RAV. Now that she has gotten a newer Camry, I am stuck with all of those Fram oil filters. I guess they work about the same; and maybe OEM probably is more expensive. Then again, I could be wrong. :D

The reason I'm asking is because the OEM filter is about a 1/8 of an inch from the header. This is because the middle plate of the oil cooler lifts the filter up towards the header. I use the V6 Toyota oil filter. Maybe the Fram filter will give me some more clearance. Easy, go to my nearest Pep Boys or Advance Auto parts and ask for both filter and compare them.
