oil bypass filter...

Anybody have a recommendation for one of these? I bought a coolant kit and must be going through some 'bypass' phase cuz now I want an oil one . I searched the threads but not a lot of info. Seems like Amsoil and the FS-2500 kits are the most popular but I can't seem to find specifics as to whats included and actual prices. Any feedback from somebody already running one (or an org vendor) would be appreciated!

- wasn't sure if this qualified was a 'performance' modification so I posted it here. sorry if it's in the wrong spot...

- and do they make bypass kits for transmissions?

This guy, who seems to be quite knowledgeable, highly recommends a oil bypass filtration kit. The one he shows in his video is an amsoil kit. POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners

Look at Oil Guard by-pass kits. IIRC they are made by Racor and come with the billet caps included in the kit.

Quick question: the remote mounted (frame rail) kits look nice but won't this become one big frozen can of chapstick in cold temperatures? Or is the oil pressure/temp high enough to 'roto-root' its way through shortly after starting? I wasn't sure if an engine bay mounted unit was necessary to avoid problems in the winter. One more: what is standard oil pressure in a 6.0? Is it high enough to actually force fluid through the bypass or, once the filter gets slightly clogged, does it just bypass the bypass? Thanks for all your help.

I can't speak of the temps causing problems. If you were to lose a hose or have a leak the oil pressure will dump oil until you notice it and it could be all of it.
