Trusted Performance Oil Filter Relocate

So I was just cruising around on the interwebs while I was at work today, and I came accross the Trusted Performance 6.0L oil filter relocation kit. I don't think they are a sponsor, so I won't post a link to the site. The description of kit states that it uses two full flow filters, one 10 micron and one 3 micron. This is the first time I have seen a full flow filter that is that small. Ususally only bypass filters are 2-3 microns. Has anyone ever used this kit, or have any experience with Trusted Performance? I am wondering if there would be downside to having a 3 micron full flow filter. It would sure do a better job filtering than a bypass filter.

I might have to give them a call about it... that would be a good excuse to gather some intel about their compound kits that are in the works

I havent seen the kit myself, but I am thinking, since you mention that it uses two filters, that the kit does indeed use two separate filters (one is a full flow and the other is a bypass filter) that both mount onto one housing. I could be wrong though.

Google trusted performance. I am pretty sure the website stated that they are both full flow filter, and there are actually two separate filter housing that are placed inline, and deletes the factory filter housing. I wonder if the 3 micron filter would clog up faster, or if it is ok, because the oil flows through the 10 micron filter first...

The only place I'd relocate anything from Trusted Performance is into the garbage can. Stay far, far away.

Beat me to it Mike. Was it Tim's Deranged or Danny's race engine that they destroyed with that garbage setup and then just left him swinging in the breeze? I wouldn't buy anything from UnTrusted Performance. It's all over on PSN a couple years ago if you want to go look up what happened.

It was Deranged that had that happen to. It was the filters fault. Since that happened Trusted has changed were they got there filters from.

That trusted kit is a Joke, check out River City Diesel's kit, its better priced and it looks a lot better. Plus Josh actually put thought into it when choosing filters to use.

Tim's Deranged. For those that haven't heard of Deranged, it was a high profile, compound turbo 6.0 Ranger build. The Trusted kit caused a catastrophic engine failure and the owner/builder did everything possible to work with Trusted to resolve the issue. Trusted told him he was on his own. During the subsequent rebuild, several other Trusted components were looked at more closely and the general consensus was that their high dollar "custom performance" parts were fabricated by an 8 year old who was learning how to use power tools.

Yep, the issue with the system was the filters Trusted used weren't up to the job, blew out the filter material sending it all through the oil system and destroying a new very expensive race engine pretty much the first time it was run. Trusted said "oh well" and left Tim holding a bag of wasted parts. No support, no standing behind their product, not even backing Tim with the Manufacturer. I wouldn't give them the time of day.

Deranged is now owned by Matt at Cutting Edge and back on the track. :thumb
