I don't think "oiling the crap" out of the filter is a good Idea. The TRD kit instructs you to use as little oil as possible, let it soak in for 45 min, and then add more oil where needed. Also, I could be wrong, but I don't think the oil is going to evaporate in the sunlight. If Oil evaporated, the filter would be dry after just a short time of driving, and the temps in the engine comp. are higher than in the sunlight. Over oiling is not good.

For cleaning I just follow the TRD insturctions. Spray, rinse from insided out so as not to drive dirt further into the filter media, air dry, reoil, and reinstall.
