I would just buy the bpd kit. Eliminate the stock oil cooler all together, plus a spin on oil filter. This kit looks like it still uses the factory oil filter. Plus the added hoses looks like it might be a pita. Just my 2

Sent from my smart phone that seems dumb compared to my wifes new phone...

What's the point in doing this if it's still using a stock oil cooler?

20 minute oil cooler change, and a reusable stainless oil filter.

My concern would be, how is the design of the oil filter bypass? What are is the psi of the before/after of the remote cooler housing? How about flow rating before/after?

This was what I was kind of wondering as well. I mean they do filter the coolant before any of it makes it to the cooler but they even say that there is a possibility that it may still clog. Just seems like a lot work and a lot of space taken up for not much gain. To the OP thanks for the link though.

Reusable oil filter? Seems kinda dumb to do that.
That seems like a tiny coolant filter too.

The purpose of this kit is to keep everything in a small package and make it very easy to install and keep the cost down under $2200 which does not require an excess of over 15ft plus oil hoses and oil filter adapters for a spin on filter, it also does not require an additional thermostat to regulate oil temps. You will also save money on labor since it takes only 1hr extra to install the kit.
The oil filter is not a factory filter, the capacity is larger than OEM which flows about 7-11 GPM
The hoses coming off the filter cap are no longer than 36" each. Not that much hose at all considering if you had to run oil hoses from 1 side to the vehicle to the other.

The resuable filter is the coolant filter not the oil filter.
A reusable stainless coolant filter cuts operation cost down and you can service it anywhere without having spare parts. It's not a new idea, K&N has been doing for years.
A larger cartridge stainless steel coolant filter similiar to the size of a bypass coolant filter will be an available option with this kit.

The coolant filter may clog due to excess contaminants, you clean the coolant filter at the first 500 miles, again at 1000 miles. Depending on how dirty your coolant system is you can inspect the filter during your oil changes.
The gain is to allow easy access in case you have to service your oil cooler. The coolant filter stops the oil coolers from plugging up. The coolant filter is much more effective than a coolant bypass. With a coolant bypass you only filter out a small amount of coolant which is T off a 3/4 heater hose, the internal orifice of bypass filter is only 1/8, this info was obtained from Baldwin Filters. This leaves quite a bit of unfiltered coolant flowing into your OEM oil cooler.
