looks like a nice set-up - but the mounting bracket puts the filter right where my coolant bypass filter sits.

definitely post some pics when you install. gotta be a way to make everything fit!

Sure will. I emailed them and asked some questions. They responded with a bunch of technical mumbo jumbo, so I said what the heck...LOL

I asked about the warranty and they said, "if anything ever breaks i simply replace it at no charge."

I asked about the fittings and they said, "it has a aircraft locknut, no reason for it to fail, and they can be viewed at, www.frantzoil.com;"

Looks like a nice kit -- reasonably priced as well. My only concern is that it looks like they've used the stock plastic oil filter cap and fill plug, and drilled and tapped them. Let us know, because I could be wrong.

I just wouldn't trust the plastic.

Sucks because I wanted to get the coolant bypass kit too, but as you know the oil bypass goes in the same place.

I have this kit. Great kit, high quality and very simple and fast to install. The bracket bolts to the 2 alternator bolts and my bracket was off a bit so I had to drill the holes out more. I did have to remove my coolant filter off and have to figure where to put it now. But I would recomend the kit to anyone on the fence.

i run the amsoil kit, it cost a more but it came with billet alumminum caps, alot stronger than than plastic. as for the mount, i went to the local metel shop and bought a piece of angle alumminum for $5.00. both kits get the job done but amsoils seems to be a higher quality.

Have you tried the other kit (one I bought)? If not, just wondering besides the fact the amsoil one comes with billet caps why you think it seems to be of higher quality? Even if bought aluminum caps the price would still be cheaper than the amsoil one. I called and spoke to the gentlemen who sells these and he's been making them for quite a while. He's a drag racer and before he decided to sell this kit he did extensive R&D. Like I said I'll be sure to let you all know my opinion on the kit after I get it put on. Should be here this Friday, so by Friday evening comes around it'll be on...

he was referring to the caps being higher quality. Billet v. plastic. the concern there is that they tapped the plastic caps to put the fittings in, and will those threads wear out in time v. the billet caps which would not. - at least that is what I took from his statement
