I just skimmed it really fast. I didn't see him mention the TRD oil filters. These are sold by Toyota, with Toyota PNs
, as an alternative to the stock filter we are all familiar with. Basically has a similar (better?) filter element, and both ends are capped with metal instead of open, and there's a metal tube in the middle for extra strength too. They fit inside the stock canister housing. So if someone feels the stock $6 filter is not good enough, they should look at the TRD filter as their first choice of upgrade. You can find this by searching oil filter on parts.toyota.com for your year of Sienna, or ask for it at any Toyota dealership.
Nope. Metal crush washer is in the filter box if you buy from a dealer.

The oil drain plug on parts.toyota.com
doesn't appear to be an aluminum crush washer, but some sort of plastic or composite material. It supersedes a lot of part numbers though, so they may have been aluminum originally, and dealers may still have aluminum ones?
