bypass and stock filter

If my truck has the AMSOIL bypass then can I cheep out on the stock filter? I know there are some Aftermarket filters that do not fit the specs of the stock filter hight and cause oil problems. But the ones that do fit the specs, can I chose those like prime guard along with the bypass?

Thanks

There is no better filter than motorcraft filters. Stick to motorcraft parts for these trucks.

I assume single by-pass then?
Should be fine with the MC filter as the primary.

What intervals you going to do oil analysis?

start at 8, 10, 12. after 12 it will be every 1k. lets say i get to 16k and the test says the oil is loosing its properties then I will pull back to 14k and that will be my cut off. And if I tow or go on a trip then the interval will be lower.

wow. I hope you get a good deal on analysis.
after the first sample, they should give a recommendation when they think the next one will be.
also... the first analyis will give you an idea of what you want to do... maybe it's so good that another 2000 miles would just be too soon....

Use the International filter 1840752C9 if you want to save a few bucks.

The bypass filter only does something like 15% of the oil flow at a time. That means with a sub standard main filter you could be sending up to 85% of your oil through unfiltered. Kinda like using a top quality parachute with a $20 harness.

How much is it to get your oil analyzed? and this may be a dumb question but how do you get the oil out, Im just doubting you pull the drain plug to get a little bit to send away, and how much oil do you send off?

Stick to motorcraft filter IMO,

Obtaining oil for a sample is easy. You can pump it out of the dip stick tube or the HPOP with a hand pump. If you want to have it tested to see how the truck is doing and you're dumping the oil, then catch a sample about 3-5 seconds after you pull the plug. Oil should always be hot when sampling.

PM me and I can get you the pump, tube, oil sampling kits, etc.
