Anybody run a by pass filter?

I run about 20K a year in my car. Setup would cost less than 300.00. It would take some time to re-coop the cost, if ever, and may not have the car long enough to reap the benefits, but I can move the system from car to car.

I also like to tinker with things and try new things out, lol, so just for that I would do it.


Been researching a lot, and the benefits are certainly there.

Using a recommended oil, fully syn if recommended by manufactorer and doing oil changes w/ filter on time has worked for a century;

the idea is interesting, buy you would still be changing the oil and filter from the factory... Using a full syn oil you could prolong the changes. BMWs w full syn has oil changes about every 15k miles

I have a full bypass system for my Dodge Cummins engine.... still sitting in my shop in the boxes!

I can't find that tool that enables you to tap the oil pan without creating metal shavings. I can't even remember what it's called.

Anyway, I'd like to install it one day.

Hey tom check the bottom of page 3 on left hand side. Return through filler cap, they make some aluminum ones for some applications with a fitting made onto them. I would not drill my oil pan either, metal is to thin and could lead to a problem down the road, then you have either leave the system in or plug the hole when you sell the car.

Man I've got an '86 BMW with 300,000 miles on it, '98 BMW with 168,000 miles, an '95 Suburban with 170,000 miles and absolutely no engine problems and run like brand new. All I do is use full synthetic and change oil and filter every 5K miles.

I don't know what else you could want out of a motor or oil/filter. I can see doing the bypass filter business if your using a really heavy duty vehicle like moving dirt all day long or something like that but for every day road use I think it's a huge waste of time, money, and add components to cause problems.

Just 2 cents worth.

by having a by pass you could have extended your change intervals way out, and saved a lot over that many miles.

Problem with this entire plan is oil breaks down and absorbs burnt carbons and fuel, which the filter doesn't remove or cure. You could accomplish the same thing by changing your exisitng filter every 3-5000 miles, and your oil every 10K. That would only be recommended for full synthetic tho...

Actually, with the Amsoil system, it does filter all those contaminates out. It is incredibly efficient and is proven. They provide you a sample kit to send oil samples to a UL to have your oil analyzed too if you worry that it's dirty or want to see if there's any issues. You can do that as often as you like, it's a pretty cool tool to use.

Regarding the drilling and using grease, I know that's the preferred method, but I don't like it because I'm paranoid. There is a tool out there that allows you to basically "punch" the hole, and then thread it (with a greased tap). They don't recommend using the oil filler to return the oil because the system is not under that much pressure and could starve the engine (for my engine, others may be different).

Whatever, I don't sell the stuff, and I don't push people to use it.

The UL testing facility is independent of them, so it's not like they're the ones testing the oil. I've also sent test samples off from my race bikes to be analyzed also to see what my engine wear looks like.

Yall do what you want and continue to change your oil every 3k miles like you were taught to, matters not to me. I know that after my oil samples were pulled and tested that they came back with accurate results.

You can't argue that using a filter with an additional filter that has a higher micron filtration capability is going to filter out more of the soot and contaminates than a traditional filtering system. Doesn't matter what oil you use.

I run one on my cummins and use Royal Purple. The bypass does remove fuel and carbon from the oil and after 10k it still looks brand new. Oh and high end syn oils do not break down like your typical dino oils.

RP FTMFW!

Oh on a side not amsoil does not have an aproved full syn oil only there blends are approved.

If you were driving a diesel then I would recommend it. Guys on TDR have been running these for years with no problems. Just top off the oil and dont change it until an analysis recommends it. Nothing like 30k oil change intervals!
