Heya guys, I was planning on getting the fs2500 filtration setup, but just heard about the amsoil. How do they compare? Opinions please. Does teh amsoil stack up to the fs2500's rep?

Here's a

I would like to know too. I'm in the opposite situation. I had hoped to get the Amsoil Dual bypass filtration setup, but just recently heard about the fs2500.

Which is better

I have Amsoil remote bypass filter on my 88' f-150 , 300 6cyl, I put it on when i got the truck in 94' with 65K, now 155k. Mybe changed oil 4 times and still runs like a top.

Was looking at same thing for the Excursion, looked at the FS2500 web page, "looks like 6 one half to the other" between that and Amsoil's to me. Then I found a remote filter head on E-Bay that Amsoil's Bybass filter fits onto, and it was a lot cheaper too, $40 ,so I went that route. It doesn't come with a restrictor, but thats easy to make. just got the thing so haven't installed it yet.

They are both great systems and both filter to 1 micron. The ease of install and replacing filters is much easier with the amsoil kit and well it's 200.00 less than the fs2500.

Their adds in every mag mimicks that of another company we are all aware of and the price shows it
