Oil bypass

Working inside a tight budget,but still want to add and oil bypass.Is it possible to drill and tap the factory oil filter & oil filler caps?
I'm thinking if I back them with a nut and lock washer they would do the job.I was going to pick up some new ones to keep in the tool box just incase somethiing didn't work out right.

I wouldn't tap the filter cover because if you have a leak and by the time you find out about it, it could be way too late. I personally don't like taking shortcuts especially when it comes to something that could ruin the engine. In fact i just priced out a bypass filter system yesterday for a customers 6.0 and the price you pay to do it right is a lot less then rebuilding an engine.

Having said all that I guess it wouldn't be the worst to do it to the filler cap.

I'm not looking to take short cuts Pete,but the set up you sell isn't in the budget right now and neither are the billet caps.
I pull a trailer daily and put about 3000+ miles a month on the odometer.I'm trying to keep it running the best I can without ending up in divorce court for doing the mods.

I can't see it hurting. I would also use some silicone sealant under everything to make sure it is nice and tight (probably high temp sealant).

I hear ya about budget concerns, but I doubt an engine rebuild is in the budget either. Just be careful if you decide to go the cheap way cuz I know from experience.

I am wanting to do the same but I can not find a filter mount that is under $50 for that thread size :/

That is my only hold up.

Smokersteve, I don't think you will find one for under fifty ,especially a billet one. The Amsoil bypass filtration kit for 6.0 with billet covers and a free oil analysis is around $335.00 if your a preferred customer. Add 25%if your not a preferred customer.

No one was doing this mod before the billet caps came out for the 6.0l?

I'm sure they were. That's more then likely why we now have the billet ones.
