OIL FILTER BYPASS

Looking at all oil bypass filters. What are some of the main differences? Is it the bypass that make the big difference or the filters that are used?

Thanks,
Shep

Re: OIL FILTER BYPASS

The bypass allows you to use a more restrictive, better filtering filter, without sacrificing the full-flow capabilites the engine needs.

Check out the OilGuard.

Re: OIL FILTER BYPASS

I know what the bypass does. Just wanted to know differences between bypasses like the Oilguard, FS 2500, AMSOIL, and any other? Is it the way the bypass is designed that makes it better or the filter it self?

Re: OIL FILTER BYPASS

I think the basic concept of a bypass filter is that the bypass filter (not the full flow) is constantly taking a small amount of the oil and filtering it at a rate the full flow filter is not capable of (i.e. finer particle filtering). I'm guessing the filters themselves have the largest effect on cleaning process of the oil.

I actually have an Amsoil bypass filter I'll be installing soon. But, until I get a chance to install it, I just ordered a Filter Magnet to aid even more in the filtering process. Check these out if you haven't already.

Re: OIL FILTER BYPASS

I think they're all pretty similar. Just check out the filter specs to see how fine it filters the oil. 1 micron is 1 micron, no matter who makes the filter. I have the Oilguard and I'm very happy with it. I ran the oil for 12,000 miles before changing out the filters and topping off and the oil analysis came back great.

Re: OIL FILTER BYPASS

I notice some bypass kits tap into the stock oil filter mount, Amsoil does not. Is there any benefit of one to the other?

Re: OIL FILTER BYPASS

I have the amsoil bypass and it does attach at the filter block. The only thing that I dislike about the amsoil unit is the fact that you have to use their by-pass filter. Locally the filters are $34.00 plus tax. I would look for one where I could use a donaldson or hasting filter to reduce cost.
