DIY bypass oil filter??

Has anyone made a DIY bypass oil filter? They are pretty expensive and i thought it could be made cheaper. Anyone have any links? I did see a interesting idea on ebay. Someone had taken a stock oil filter cap and drilled/tapped it, put a gauge and a line to a remote filter and then back into a tapped oil filler plug. There must be a catch. Why would that not work?

Anyone have a link to some good DIY ideas?

I'm waiting on these guys to start selling their standard bypass kit. Might get impatient and get the basic and find some hose.

Hay that is cool. That is exactly what i was talking about except that kit has fancy billet caps. I still think you could DIY yourself one much cheaper but that is still much cheaper than many being offered. Thanks for that.


Hmm. it looks really cool too.

Don't know if the stock plactic would make a good seal. But I guess its worth a try.

kit looks nice. i've noticed some kits run the return through the fill neck and others, which mount on the frame rail, run the return through an adapter via the drain plug location. any pros or cons for choosing either method?

This is what nucmotorsports.com told me:

"Thank you very much for contacting us. Our initial release price for the deluxe kit will be $399.95 with our standard kit listing at $339.95. We do not charge out of state sales tax and shipping/handling on the kits is always a flat rate of $9.95.

We are currently still working out all of the design gremlins and publishing associated literature and will be releasing the kits in the very near future."
