BPD bypass filter system-

Wonder who has a BPD oil bypass filter system on their truck and how do you like it?
In the real world,how many more miles cold I possibly expect to get out of my oil (T5 10w30) with this type of set up? I know this is a difficult question just askin opinons. Thanks

How often are you changing it now?? It will more than likely extend your oil change interval but the amount that it does extend it should really only be determined/confirmed through oil analysis.

Ive yet to actully run more than say 2000 miles on a oil change yet. (Ive had the truck for 7 months, get 5 free oil changes at dealer,have used 2, then installed BPD oil cooler and put Rottella 15-40 in, and today changed over to T5. So 4 oil changes in 5000 miles!!) But this is the first oil change I plan on keeping. Just tryin to see what kinda pay back time I might be looking at with the bypass set up

Well buddy, if you give it a few, I'm installing the BPD bypass in my current build along with their cooler and I'm utilizing T6 5W-40 synthetic as it's my understanding these 6.0's love 5W-40 synthetic so when in Rome....Anyways, my build isn't complete yet but I will keep you updated on my results. I think Nate is onto something with the oil analysis. We could put all the bypasses in the world with even the lowest micron rating filters but analyzing results are going to be the go/no-go on extended oil services. Any particular reason you went with the 10W-30?

I'm gonna stick around with this one as I'd like to see others' results and will also post mine as I go. I think for grins, I'll probably do my first oil change from the build at 2,500 miles, just to do it and then bump them back up to 5,000 miles.

I'm curious what others have to say as well. Have you contacted BPD about this? They are full of excellent information.

I have the BPD oil bypass filter kit and plan on hopefully getting it along with all my other BPD goodies installed here shortly. However I have came up with a way to retrofit my bypass filter kit to allow me to run the Amsoil EaBP100 series bypass filters that filter to 2 microns absolute at 98.77% efficiency and remove up to 39% of soot from the oil as well. Now I plan on using this setup along with oil analysis, BUT I plan on seeing just how far I can push the oil life in my truck. Also if I have to upgrade oil from Rotella T6 to a better full synthetic such as Amsoil's full synthetic to gain better results than I will do that as well just to see what kind of oil change intervals are possible with a solid bypass oil filter kit.

That's the setup I have (BPD with Amsoil bypass). Have not run it long enough yet to add any info though.

Thatís what I was going to try to install (BPD oil cooler with the Amsoil oil by-pass kit) did you have any problems I sure be aware of? My brother is running a Amsoil oil by-pass kit with Amsoil 5-40 and did his first oil change with 45000 miles on the oil due to he didnít feel conferrable even though lab test results were within margins and was told to run oil for another 7500mile ,and now he has 38000miles on this oil change and still going.
