MKM Coolant bypass kit.

I really like the looks of this kit but don't know much about it. I wanted to see if anyone has any experience with this kit before I order it. I know most people run the Dieselsite kit but I think this will really go good with the NUC oil bypass kit when I order it. I have included a link for the MKM/Sinister collant bypass below. All input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Just so i understand 100%

You take out your stock filter entirely. Put this new cap on. Which routs the oil to the AMSoil filter and then it drops it down the filler neck?

Does the oil still go through the oil cooler?

Does that oil filter cap replacement have some piece that i do not see fit down over the inlet to the stock filter?

Thx,
M

It must some how block the normal return of oil to the pan.

Okay i went to NUC Motorsports Web site and read the installation instructions.

Where do i get a new flow through filter? The reason i ask is that my WIX filters i have bought have a cap on them? I guess i need to buy some stock Motorcraft filters

i bought a system on ebay, weak moment, but my truck will like it hehe.

I just got this for Christmas! I will be installing it once I flush my system. It seems of a good quality piece and it has some good weight to it.

As far as the coolant kit, mine (ordered from MKM) came with all Dieselsite packaging, brochures, etc...

1.No, you will still use a OEM filter system (with the new type cap)
2. The new cap is for mounting of a fitting which will take some oil and send to the bypass filter only.
3.Yes
4. new cap works the same with the exception of the fitting at the top which routes oil to the Amsoil bypass filter.

Don't get hung up on the new oil filter cap, it just holds a fitting. Theoretically you could drill and tap a hole in your old cap and put a fitting in.
Oil filler cap also just holds a fitting to route the bypass filtered oil back to the pan.

So, is this essentially a dieselsite kit?
