I am planning on stocking up on some of these, how good are they? Do our trucks use crush washers on the drain plug?
I don't know what part number the latest OEM filters are. I bought a bunch of the 15208-9E000 filters a few years ago. My truck and car use the same filter. They are good filters unless they changed to a different part number. Yes, there is a copper crush washer on the oil pan drain plug.I am planning on stocking uo on some of these, how good are they?

Wix 51356?i bought a nissan filter once. it seemed ok. some people on here say they are junk because they use a cardboard end cap insted of steel. i didnt buy anymore of them because they are $8 a pop and are made in china. a wix filter is good and thats what i use.
The Titan oil filter is really larger? I thought the VQ35, VQ40 and VK56 all used the same and the QR25 was just a bit smaller but still the same thread?if you want to run a slightly larger filter (one of those "it can't hurt, it can only help" things) you can order titan filters. they are the same thread and diameter, but slightly longer and have a slightly higher capacity. i've been running them for a while now. i just request they use one at the dealership when they change my oil (it's only $27 so why bother doing it myself when i don't have a place to do it anymore?)
titan one is a hair bigger. maybe 1/2 an inch or so. not really a big change and yea the GTR uses the same one as us because the VR38 is based on the VQ roughly (though it's completely different, it shares a lot of the same design and architecture)The Titan, Frontier, Sentra and GTR use the same filter.
Funny, the Nissan JDM filters are called Pitwork and made in Japan.
I thought the same thing. I am giving HKY the benefit of a doubt and will wait for the PNs from him.I owned a Titan LE for three years, the filter was the exact same part
Filters came from multiple dealers over the years. They all can't be making the same mistake.
