TRD parts
So I'm going to take my car into the dealership on Friday, while I'm there I may get a TRD Oil Filter and brake pads, how much do they cost, and will they do all that much. I run my car hard ALL the time, so my oil tends to get dirty fast, also , does TRD make brake pads for GT drums?

brake pads are about $50 without labor.

if you run your car hard all the time--try using pure synthetic oil or at least synthetic blend oil

no pads for drums

What's the difference between the TRD Oil Filter vs. a normal one?

The supposed benefit of the TRD Oil Filter is that it allows more oil to flow
through it and has better filtration than regular oil filters. Kinda like how their Performance air filters work, except with oil instead of air.

It would be difficult for the average consumer to tell if that's really true or not, my guess is that a big company like Toyota's TRD division, that banks on
their good name and reputation is not going to risk the liability of flat out
lying about a products capabilities.

But who knows, such things are not without precedent. Leap of consumer faith I guess spineyes
