Oil Bypass assembly DIY question!

So after looking online, i have decided to "build" my own bypass system. for starters the amsoil 1 is nothing more than the caps the truck has on it already! just "billet" no advantage to billet WHATSOEVER imo. So what is stopping me from drilling the holes and adding the fittings myself?? anyways i cannot find mounting surface anywhere that the filter joins up to. Has anyone found this peice anywhere as a stand alone peice?? i would like to buy the same amsoil filter and just the peice needed to spin it onto. The rest i am going to do myself and save alot of money in the process. Thanks for input! if anyone knows the thread size of amsoil filter i might be able to find a bracket elsewhere off that info.

Actually, the amsoil kit doesn't come with those billet caps. They must be purchased seperately. Their kit hooks to an oil gallery connection and drains into a fitting tapped into the oil pan. See http://www.amsoil.com/bypassfilters/...BMK21_BP83.pdf for details. I was actually thinking of tapping the OEM caps as well.

For a mount, see how Bill did it (just don't use vice-grips on a hex fitting please) POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners

I have the oil by-pass system and the cap and return Oil Fill Cap for 6.0L Ford BK-1102. I am not into drilling into the oil pan to install a return line and get steel in the oil not on my 6.0 Get the cap that is used where you add the oil in 30 second install

why would you drill the oil pan? take the oil filter cap and the oil fill cap drill and tap for a fitting...

Paying that much for the billet caps to some is a waste of money. I myself like to do things cheap where I can so I understand your reasoning...

you wont have any problems with doing just that. When i do my oil bypass im going to buy the NUC motorsports kit its only $329 and includes all billet caps, fittings, and lines and it saves me time and agony putting a kit together when theirs is priced very reasonably, i would definitely check it out.

I pull my oil feed from a billet cap on the oil filter but I return the oil from the bypass filter to the oil pan. I have run that configuration on several vehicles and never had a problem.

Are you asking about a mounting bracket or the filter head unit?
