Oil Bypass and Coolant Filters w/ Banks Intercooler

I wanted to share my oil bypass and coolant filter setup with those guys running a Banks intercooler, because the boost pipe coming off the turbo takes up a lot of available space for this install. I contacted Scott Richards about using his kit that he sells on dieseloilbypasskits.com. He said he didn't think it would work, due to the size of the Banks boost pipe. I told him that I'd buy it and try it anyway. I really liked the water jetted "6.0" on the bracket...

So, the kit arrived, and I started laying it out. It definitely was not going to fit the original way it was designed. So, I made a phone call to my fabrication partner (Kelly Hatfield in Sun City, CA), and out came the welder... Don't get me wrong, Scott's kit is solid and very well designed, but it just wouldn't fit my rig with the Banks intercooler. Kelly got to hacking, welding, bending, and grinding, and the picture below is the outcome of the mad fabricator.

Thanks to Scott Richards for allowing me to hack up his kit and working with me to get the parts I needed. Don't hesitate to check out his kit if you don't have the Banks intercooler. Awesome stuff!

Let me know what you guys think...

This is a Scott Richards designed Amsoil bypass kit.

I'm pretty sure Scott's wheels are turning already about a kit to work with the Banks setup.

Good job on the mods, looks like it was made that way.
The one comment I have is about the bracket being bolted to both the motor (main mount is on the alternator) and then also bolting it to the intercooler mounting bolt. The motor will move (torque) when under a load, so you really shouldn't have a solid bracket bolted between the motor and the radiator support. I think your small bracket may eventually break.
Other than that it looks great.

EDIT - I like your site glass for seeing the water flow in the bypass.
I had an Amarillo before I bought the 450, they are great looking trucks

Ah, that's an EXCELLENT point, Arctic! I didn't even think about that. That's why I love these forums...

Maybe I should put a rubber bushing between the nut and the bracket? Think that would give it enough room to move, or should I remove the nut and let it float?

I would drill the hole bigger in the small bracket and put a rubber grommet in it, then put a washer on each side and use a nylon lock nut so you don't have to tighten it up too much.

First I will say Scott has stepped up to the plate but I have had plenty of issues with the kit contents.

First was the oil cap and the coolant filter head. Oil cap leaked since the swivel fitting was not properly tightened up. I fixed it the first time but the cap leaked AGAIN later down the road. I got a new fitting from Scott. I do not use the swivel fitting at this time.
The coolant filter head I got was cracked from the manufacturer. Scott got a second one out to me but took a ted longer than I had hoped.

I wanted the kit since the bracket held both filter setups but there are MUCH better parts to buy out there.

As I started out Scott stepped up and resolved my issues. I just wish he sold the bracket separated from the other parts.
