I have been curious since I got the Camry, I was on their site looking to see what mods I could do. Not much for the 2.5 but I did see the oil filter. I am running the Toyota oil filter now. any advantage to use the TRD?

Your engine takes a cartridge type oil filter, so there may not be much of an advantage going to the TRD filter which shines on spin-on models. The Fram Tough Guard or Extra Guard cartridge filters are well built and what I use in my Toyota's. Fram recently released their Ultra Filter for your application, so also check it out too. Ultra Premium: XG9972 Tough Guard: TG9972 Extra Guard: CH9972

Do you know the apropriate trd filter # for your car? I recently got 2 trd filters for my corolla and they are 3 plies 98% at 20 microns solidly built and has the nut on the end. Depends how much you can get them for will b the factor. I paid 14$ each...doubt its worth the price over the fram ultra but i wanted to try it out.

The TRD for my Toyota Land Cruiser is Champ built and is a dead ringer for a Mobil 1 filter. The Camry filter is probably built by Champion too. So, yes, it would be a "better" filter than stock. But you could shop the oil deals and pick up the M1 version for "free". I think O'Reilly has a PP/M1 deal right now for $36.99 with a $10 card back.
