Billet Oil Filter Cap by Jowett Performance

Hello Tundra Talk. I've just completed the second run of my billet oil filter cap. Now that I'm a site sponsor, I can tell you a bit more about it. This replaces all plastic and alloy versions of the stock cap with a heavy duty billet aluminum piece. A 2.5" six sided nut replaces the 14 flute 64.5mm stock design, which is prone to rounding off and occasionally cracking when overtightened. An optional Fumoto/EZ Drain Valve allows easy draining of the oil from the filter housing. The stock filter support tube and bypass valve are retained, so your oil system performs just as when it left the factory. Any questions? Please ask.

Interesting... A couple of questions please!

1) What type of finish is on the cap? Paint, Powdercoat, Anodized?

2) Is the cap available with no finish, just the natural aluminum?

Thanks!

That's awesome Brian!

This will make oil changes so much easier and cleaner.

The cap is hard anodized.

I can supply you with a bare finished piece. Drop me an email [email protected]

Thank you, Jon.

Brian,
Is there still a fair bit of clearance between the bottom of your oil filter cap Fumoto valve and the stock engine under cover/splash pan?

Steve

Sold the Tundra.
Thanks for the fun and good times.
So long.

Steve

Yes, clearance is still good. The cap with a standard drain plug sits 3/4" lower than the stock piece, and with the drain valve it sits 1.2" lower.

Robust? Great description, thank you!

The only pic handy is this uncoated unit. I can take fresh in the morning if you would like?

Here's a little history lesson on Toyota and the cartridge oil filter system. For the USA market, Toyota began using the cartridge filters during the late 50's and into the 60's. This vintage filter shown here is for an early R Series engine that was used in the Toyota Stout Pickup... which is the great grand daddy to the current Tundra. Note how it is nearly the same dimensions as the current V8 filter.
