I know I'll take some crap for this but Amsoil has a good single bypass unit.

[/ QUOTE ]


Doesn't the Amsoil bypass return have to be drilled in the side of the oil pan? I have wanted a bypass system but do not want to drill the pan. I like what I am hearing about the fs2500 system but since I have a 2wd I don't know if it would be such a good idea to have the hose hanging from the drain hole. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img] I would like to switch to synthetic but I have 82K on the truck and don't know if it's too late.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

The FS2500 has a port where you plug a hose in to take a sample, it has a nipple fitting that when you push it up the oil flows and when you release it, the flow stops. It is a really clean way to take a sample.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

As far as drilling the pan or not all depends on the make. THe 7.3L has threaded ports already in the engine block that are plugged. When you get ready to install, they supply the wrench to pull those plugs and put in the supplied fittings. No Drilling. The 6.0L however is a different story. When I spoke with the people from FS, I didn't ask specifically about the 6.0L since I have a 7.3L but they did say it was installed in the pan. Hope this helps.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

The fitting included in the 6L kit replaces the pan plug. Screws right into the pan boss. I like my fumoto also, so if I go with the FS2500 filter, I am going to use a oil cap return.

If you look at the 3rd page of the install, there is an arrow depicting the sample port.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

I will be using the Amsoil BMK-11 single bypass filter mount and the Oilguard oil filter and oil filler caps to hook up the bypass oil supply and return lines, respectively on 6.0. No other interface or connection to the engine. $175 from Oilguard.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

So lets see... pro's and con's...


Oil guard ~$300. More if I want shut off valves. I get a specialized kit for the 6.0L with anodized oil filter cap tapped and return line in the anodized oil filler cap. Filters to less than 3 micron. Filters ~11 bucks.


and


FS2500 ~$450 and may still have to buy other fittings if I don't want the return line in the pan and no swivel off the oil filter cap. Still more if I want shut off valves. Filters cost ~22 bucks and they filter to 1-2 micron range.


Which way to go?

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

I have the OilGuard and love it easy to install and mount.
No drilling required of any kind, Not even when you mount it to the
frame. IMOP OilGuard did the research for the 7.3, Doesnt sound
like the other guyes did very much research. That is why I choose
OilGuard, the results as far as filtering are pretty much the same. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

Another big plus for the Oilguard is that you DON'T have to change the element every 10,000 miles. You can pretty much run the element as long as the oil. Heck some people change the element every other oil change. As long as the unit is hot to the touch, it is still flowing.

That's how I was told to tell if it was still filtering.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

Ok I have to install it but I got the Oilguard as it filters down to about 1 micron and their filters are less money. I went with the bigger unit EPS-60 as it has twice the filter area and only costs $3 more. I figure this will extend the filter change time by at least 50%. I njust need to figure out where to mount the canister as it is about 12" long.

For what it's worth Oilguard also sells fuel filters that are exact replacements with the water screen material and all. In fact they sell all the filters too.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

OK Skeet,

Where and how long ago??? You knew some one was going to ask. If I could find it for 2 bills I would purchase tonight. That is for a 6.0 truck.

Let me know...pm me if you don't want to post.

Jeff

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

I got the FS2500 today and I plan on installing it tomorrow after I get off work. I will take photos of the system and the before and after photos of set up. I will also try and take a photo of the oils before and after as well.

I will send more later.
