I have the Amsoil bypass system and it uses the same filter. The only thing I would ask about this kit would be does it have a regulator built into it. The Amsoil kit has a bypass valve that only allows a small amount of oil through on each pass. It looks like this may have a valve with the tiny lines it has, but I would be worried about how much pressure it takes from the rest for the system. Let us know how it works. Vic
I have this kit. Where the filtered oil would exit the filter, in the center of the threaded mount, there is a tiny hole. Too small to measure with my calipers. The hole restricts the flow leaving the filter.
As to the size of the lines, they're at least 10 times larger in diameter than the size of the restrictor orifice, so it really doesn't matter if they're small.
------------------REPOST FROM ANOTHER THREAD
I ordered a kit from NUC Motorsports
The kit comes with everything needed to install on an 99-03' 7.3 with an automatic transmission. The parts included:
- Stainless steel braided PTFE lines
- laser cut mounting plate
- Billet aluminum spin-on filter adapter
- Amsoil EaBP100 filter
My dilemma was that I have a ZF-6 manual, not an automatic, so the mount wouldn't help me any. So using some 2"x2"x⅛" aluminum, I fashioned my own bracket. I know the ⅛" stuff sounds weak, so I doubled it up on one side to add rigidity.
The flywheel cover bolts are M8 if I recall. I nabbed some continuously threaded stainless steel set screws that were about ½" longer than the OEM bolts, and secured them with flat washers, followed by lock washers and a hex-nut, all of which were stainless steel.
I ended up mounting the filter on the horizontal plane, which will allow me to use a EaBP110 in the future if I desire.
For those of you doing this yourself, I encountered a big problem removing the return plug on the side of the block. I ruined the plug trying to remove it. So off to Lowes I went, to find a #6 screw extractor
. It was very difficult to get out.
Then after about 600 miles, I sent a sample to Blackstone. They said I'm in real good shape, TBN was 7.7, Insolubles was 0.1%. The second analysis at 9,500 miles showed insolubles at 0.2% and TBN @ 7.1. I'm running Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40.
Here's a picture of the filter.
Here's my last Blackstone analysis.
