Factory installed oil filters on SkyActiv 2.5T and 2.5L are Japanese made Tokyo Roki PY8W-14-302 and PE01-14-302B respectively.Just did the first oil change on out 2020 CX-5 GTR. Found the factory installed filter to be be larger than the one provided by the Mazda dealer. Putting up some photos, hoping that there is a simple explanation. Factory installed is on the top. Thanks in advance.

They are made in Thailand, not Taiwan.dont know about the 2.5 turbo but on the
non turbo the factory filter japan made is no longer sold by the dealers. The oem they sell is smaller taiwan made. They also have the cheaper oem MV line mexico made but people usually stay away from those and prefer the taiwan one.
For some reason dealers not longer sell the japan made filter in Usa at least for 2.5 non turbo.
btw the taiwan made one is very good filter too. dont worry its a bit smaller as long as its the right part number for the 2.5T
