Wouldn't you really rather build one yourself? Then you'd know how to install it, and you wouldn't need any vendor support!

I run a Gulf Coast bypass filter. Not cheap but a long reputation running on big rigs. In a pinch you can use a roll of paper towels for a filter. I am happy with mine.

I run the Oil Guard setup and have been very happy with the quality of the kit.

The purpose is to filter the motor oil down to 1 micon, this helps to increase engine and injector life.

Does anyone know if its safe or helps at all to run an engine oil cooler with a bypass setup? Id like to run a 10 micron into a 1 or 2 micron secondary filter. I was just wondering if I throw a small yet effective oil cooler if it would screw anything up. It sure would be nice to have easier access and dual filters for a lil more oil and lots more control on shavings.
