FS2500 oil filtration

I am looking into buying this secondary oil filter to my truck. They say it will reduse the need of oil changes because it filter the oil even more then the factory filter does. It also say that it remove the deposits in the engine and elimates 99% of the ware factor. If anyone knows anything about this please drop a line. I am looking to see you guys would do this or leave it alone. Nick

That's one of the first mods I wanna put on the new truck. My dad runs it on his truck and the proof is in the oil anaylisis, just keeps getting cleaner and cleaner. The only down side is that you have to send in about 7-8 anaylisis's to start with until you get to know the oil change intervals your truck likes and then it is still good to do it a couple times a year. but it's only like 12 bucks a whack so it's not too bad givin what the product does for ya.

Fs 2500

The FS 2500 is around $475. It is engine specific and it comes with everything you need to put on your truck. This kit is the heat. It provides you with very detail instruction on how to install it. I like the feeling of knowing that is has stopped 99.2% of my internal engine ware. If you have any question please let me know because I am going to be a sales rep here soon. Thanks Nick

Fs 2500

The service intervel is any ware from 10-20 thousand miles between oil changes. To start out you do an oil change and install the system then at your next 5000 mile oil change you send and oil sample out for a reading and you need to replace you 2500 filter at this time. You will need to send a sample for testing. Now you are probley going to do another oil change at 5000 miles deppending on the milage that is on your engine. Now you are going to send out another sample and you need to change the 2500 filter also. You will now need to send another sample out. The goal is to have your readings come back clean. Once your engine is clean then you change only the 2500 filter every 10,000 miles and add one quart to make up the lose. Most engines go between 20,000 and 25,000 miles between oil changes but you still need to change the 2500 filter every 10,000. the replacement filter cost 20 bucks. If you have more question drop a line

Based on the initial cost and everything you ran down in the post as far as changing the 2500 filter, it appears that it would cost just about the same than doing the regular 3-5k changes, whatever each individual owner prefers. But the obvious upside is the gradual cleaner oil and likely extended engine/internal parts life.
