Oil Bypass, dual filter or single and placement.

I am looking to get a Oil Bypass as my next addition to the truck and curious who has one, where you may have it mounted and if your usuing a single or dual filter set up and why? I have been researching the AMSoil system as it looks to be more in my price range at moment but still a solid system with good reviews.
Any comments on where you may have mounted yours, pics and singel or dual filters would help, thanks.

i have the Filtration Solutions FS2500. It is great. The oil is pretty much clean all of the time. I had the Amsoil unit a few years ago, and didn't like it. I have mine mounted on th R/S frame, after the cab. (supercab) They give you all of the fittings and plenty of hose to get it done.

The kit is expensive and the filters are expensive (2). I also noticed the oil is cleaner with the FS2500...........

Around $450.00, and the filters are much less money than the Amsoil.

That is the nice thing about the bypass kits you can mount them just about anywhere you like. I wish I had some pictures of where people had placed them but I don't. I would say that if you do some off road travels I would look for a high spot just in case you kick up a tree limb or something. Im not sure if you know but AMSOIL bypass systems have an efficiency of 98.7 percent at 2 microns. Which is almost absolute efficiency that removes particles less than 1 micro. At normal RPMS the system will filter all the oil in the system in about 30 mins or less. Because of the construction of our filters they provide better sealing, and last longer. Also with an AMSOIL bypass system the oil cools better and last longer.

As to the price Im not sure if you are dealing with someone, but I feel sure we can get you into a system cheaper than retail.

If I can be of further help please feel free to PM, Email or give me a call.

Thanks
