Product: Trans-Dapt Performance Products Bolt-On Oil Filter Bypass Adapters
Part Number TRD-1015
Vendor - Trans-Dapt from Summit Racing

Online states that the TRD-1015 will fit the 1988 and 1989 Celica All Trac

It will not fit. It is labeled for use on old Ford V8s.
The part looks like it will fit perfect, but is about 3/4 of an inch too small in all measurements.
The image they show on summit actually looks like a slightly different part than I received.
Trans Dapt catalogs and their webpage though state this is for the Furds.

don't get this.
