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
