centrifuge truck filter replacement

has anyone on this site used these?ive noticed more and more advertising for these.im wondering wouldnt these things cause severe shearing of the oil just like we already have a problem with in diesels?any ideas or thoughts or opinions are welcome.im posting a link for a chevy but its only for a reference. Oil Centrifuge Filtration Kit [1140100] - $499.99 : Pacific Performance Engineering, Innovations in Diesel Performance .sooner or later they will get around to making kits for all trucks.again that page is just for reference so everyone knows what im talking about.let the open thoughts begin.

i dont think the eng would matter.for the most part diesel is diesel.i am concerned about the oil shear,but if you got 700 trucks rolling with these things maybe i should give it a try.does it really extend the life of the oil?have you seen any down falls to it?let me know what you think about them

The prinicple is solid. I work on, uh , large, expensive, (very expensive actually), things that operate in a hostile environment, and their large oil sytems (over 2,000 gallons) are only ever purified with "spinner filters", and there are no oil changes ever done (samples are taken and analazed on a regular basis though).

All of our trucks run 30,000 miles and gets changed regardless. spinner filters for us are pretty cheap when buying in bulk. The only down fall to these things are after long periods of time for instance 100,000,000 miles give or take the shafts that the filters spin on seem to wear out but you prolly won't have to worry bout that tho.....

I think I would keep my filters and get a oil bypass kit. It filters down to 1-2 microns and you can go longer on oil changes.

Those things like sick. I want one. If it were me and I wasn't a poor broke college student I would get this and a bypass system..
I would have the cleanest freaking oil in the world!!!
If you've got the $ for it, I would get it.. If not, you can get a really nice bypass for less.
