Oil Bypass filteration!!

Being a diesel tech Im starting to see more and more oil bypass kits ,I have read there claim and they have some good facts, one being of the weaknesses of 6.0 is all the heat the engine creates .I was wondering what kind of resultes you all have had with these kits if any at all! They claim that it reduce all engine oil heat and reduce headgasket and injector failures,if this is really true than its a great product .But iwould really like some input from all the great people here on the org...

If you're a diesel tech then you should understand the advantage of oil filtered to 1 or 2 microns vs 20 microns where our oil fired injectors are concerned. Need I say more.

I plumbed my own and didn't buy the caps yet, just to get me going(direct into oil pressure port). If you search long enough you may be able to find the caps cheap.

I got the NUC oil filter mount on ebay for ~$20 and the NUC oil filter cap from NUC for ~$65.

I mounted the amsoil filter in the passengers bumper in front of the wheel. I did not want to cram the engine compartment. I already have a coolant filter in there.

I installed the amsoil kit about a year ago. The kit worked out great and was very easy to install. I installed it behind the grille. The coolant filter and oil by-pass won't fit in the same area. No leaks, just did an oil change this week and everything was very easy to manage. In the 6.0, the answer to most of the problems is a coolant and oil by-pass filtration. But its not cheap!!

Uh ok. Yes I have a Gulf Coast bypass filter designed for semi's. It was a bear to mount due to its size. It does a great job filtering. If installed correctly there is no reason for it to leak.
