TRD Drop in Filter
Can someone here tell me what color there TRD drop-in filter is? I'm trying to look for a picture on the internet, but can't find none.

The reason being is I managed to purchase a brand new filter that was sitting on the shelf for like 1.5 yrs, and its says its from TRD JAPAN (made in Japan) and the box is all japanese except for like 1 or two words of English. But the element doesn't look anything like the K&N, and I thought the new TRD Filters are K&N rebadged filters, made by TRD USA.

Anyways, can someone let me know.

Thanks

its red colored with a metel mesh on it, and it doesnt feel cheap either, and its rather heavy for a TRD Air Filter too.

Thanks RookieGTS! That's exactly what I'm looking for. Now the one I got isn't anything like those two. I can clearly see that the 2nd picture, its red/yellowish, and totally looks like a K&N. The one I got, its got a dark grey paper like element which plus its got TRD on the wider part of it (like in the front part, not the side). So could it be I got an EARLIER generation TRD Filter, or an actual Japan TRD Filter? Does anyone know who made them before K&N started making them?

forget the filter, save the money, and get an Intake...
