Dual Amsoil Bypass Oil Filter

I purchased a Amsoil dual oil filter bypass kit off of a member here. This is the one that takes the place of the stock filter. After reading a number of threads how this setup leads to higher wear metals, I decided to hold off on installing it.

Then I got to thinking, what if I were to install these dual filters in the two smaller ports above the stock oil filter? Obviously I would need the correct adapters for the threads, but does any one see a reason this wouldn't work? I wouldn't think there would be any significant oil pressure drop or anything.

Im interested in how adding the bypass filter can increase wear metals. Got any links?
Also, I go 10,000 miles per oil change with a FL1995 just fine, I'm sure with a bypass you can go even further.

I'm going to guess that he has utilized the existing oil ports near the factory filter and plumbed them to a bypass filter head. Pretty simple setup and a lot cheaper haha

I just got this setup from another member and I am having the same thoughts after reading other threads about the same issues. What did you end up doing?

What is funny is all you guys running bypasses and multiple oil filters... Come on these are the bread and butter motors. They dont need oil changes every 10k. The way oil is made these days 25k is pretty standard on oil life. I run 18-20k miles on oil changes. Now sure if i have been out in the desert then i would change it more as dusting the oil is not good but if you stick to the normal roads and are not bajaing it oil doesnt need to be changed that fast. Big rigs are going 25-30k miles with no issues on the same oil.

With your three oil filter setup.... So every 10k you are spending what 200 bucks to do oil change/filter change? Ouch.

No one is worried about the heui injectors eating the oil quality??

Well things are a little different on say an ISX that has a 14 gallon sump compared to 7.3 which is a 1/4 the size. That isn't to say that it can't be done, just some additional monitoring might not be a bad idea.

Well technically it would be the HPOP beating the shear out of the oil. There will be shearing, no doubt but a decrease in oil viscosity without an increase in wear metals is nothing to get too excited about. If someone is going to run extended OCIs you really should be monitoring via UOAs. While UOAs are far from infallible they at least give you an idea of what is going on.
