if you DIY or piece meal a kit do not forget a flow restriction

or you may overwhelm the bypass and rob oil from the motor

the cooler ? I don't think it will contribute any benefits to an OEM system that if working properly has no issue with oil temps

Oil restriction hole depends if your going to use a "full flow" filter like the Amsoil EaBP series or a "bypass" filter that has restricter hole built into the filter.

well I assume you wouldn't pull full flow system from the OEM oil filter and dump it back to a oil fill or drain plug like you would with a like you would with a restricted flow Bypass

otherwise it seems you would seriously compromise the OEM oiling system

also My bypass filter does not have a restrictor it is inline and why I mentioned it

As for adding a cooler to the bypass oil lines, I've heard of two people doing this. Only one reported a EOT drop, but no evidence was posted to confirm his findings.

Your right, but some people think that using a Amsoil EaBP series filter has a built in restricter hole, it don't. The EaBP series is a full flow bypass filter that you need to make a restricter hole somewhere in the bypass head or lines.
