bypass filter

Hi
I put an amzoil remote bypass on my 07 when I bought new, change the oil very seldom. Maybe 6 times in 195,000 miles. keeps the oil from being black,, like checking the oil in a gasser. I use Amzoil oil also.
The return is in the oil filler cap, so when I have to go to Ford for something, I just pop the stock filler cap and oil filter cap back on and there are NO questions.

I found the amsoil oil filter mount made be NUC motorsports on ebay for $20. And I got the oem oil filter cap for ~$65 total from NUC's web site. I got the oil filters from amsoil and I build my system.

You need to do an oil analysis with any sort of extended oil change.
If you want a bypass filter, do a coolant bypass filter

Hi
For me it has worked out to change my synthetic oil twice a year, approx 20,000 miles on each oil change, I change the bypass once a year.
I had the oil anylized a few times and it told me that once a year or even less is right according to the oil , but I figure that 20,000 miles is enough for me, got my monies worth out of it. Just changed it today, by the way, 22,000 miles on this one. The bypass is the secret to clean oil, I usually can't see the oil on the dipstick, it is so clean,, hard to check the oil , almost want to put a dye in it or ? Can't wait to get my coolant filter installed, I think on the 6.0 that that is more of an issue than the oil
Good luck

I'm sure it stays clean, but how does the TBN and viscosity look after that 22k? Not starting a war, but since you said it was analyzed, I'm curious.

Results came back every time ,keep in service and on the bar graphs it had a long way to go.
I have some local friends that just keep testing and changing filters and one guy on a sprinter has not officially ever changed his oil. just filters, I do realize that some oil gets replaced when the filter is replaced, but with all our Catapiller equipment, some of them take 50 gallons or so of oil, and testing is WAY cheaper than changing, and we really like to "baby" the equipment as best we can. So needless oil changes don't make sense.
I have 195,00 on my 6.0 and seems to have done fine on my 9 oil changes.
I DO know that talking about oil is kind of like religion , LOTS of views on the SAME thing.
