The Engine Oil Filtration System

After replacing both my oil cooler & HPOP recently (265000) miles, I ran across a site:

http://www.bulletproofdiesel.com/DL/...iterDiesel.pdf

They suggest the following:

"The oil filter filtration system also has several problems. According to the OE oil filter marketing information, the 6.0L Power Stroke engine can demand up to 18 gallons of oil a minute. The filter specifications for engine oil filter shows it flows less than half of that amount. When the volume of oil needed exceeds the filters capacity, the filter bypass valve opens. This allows unfiltered oil to join the filtered oil bound for the lubrication and injection oil circuits."

If this is the case, aren't we all risking potential engine damage?
At what RPM would the 6.0 demand 18 1/2 gal per minute (5000)?

Hoping one of the many experts here can discredit this claim and give us some peace of mind..

If this is true (I'm guessing the folks at Neal Tech are saying so...?) then here is another good reason to run a bypass oil filter iot help with keeping the oil cleaner. Their system is very expensive$$$!!

Their system is very expensive and from all the pic tures I have seen I believe it to be flawed as well. I have not seen anything that mentions a thermostat on their oil cooler setup and believe that for a larger air to oil heat exchanger that this is a required part of a well designed system. In the colder weather this system has the potential to over cool the oil which is also not good for the system. I run a large oil cooler on my open track Cobra and I have incorporated a 180* thermostat which bypasses the cooler if the oil temp is below that. Just something to consider.

I contacted Racor quite some time ago. The spec on their oil filter is 20 gpm. I do not know where Neal may be getting that.
