Oil Bypass Filter Discussion

Have at it people... im trying to put together a little discussion to get you better oil filtration for a cheaper price if you dont mind the hunting for parts

Putting together your own lines and fittings, using a baldwin filter head or a Napa filter head... you know something similar, also by using filters that are easier to get ahold of than ordering amsoil product online such as CAT, baldwin, Napa, John Deere etc.

Anyone know off hand or have done any research on this? Im looking to try and cross reference the Amsoil EABP100 filter to something else thats cheaper and uses a more universal thread pitch design.

I guess I'm no help to you here. I run a Gulf Coast. However I can throw a roll of paper towels in it for filtration.

You can always look on eBay for a Franz bypass. They use a roll of toilet paper for a filter and work great. I had one on my 73 F100 and put 176k on it before I sold it and it ran like a top.

Come to think of it, I have one in the garage.

I would like to do a bypass set up for my 7.3 but can't justify the $500 for a set up like FS2500. I would like to know too if those CAT filters would work. I know you can get a filter base from NAPA and they have bypass filters that filter to 10microns but it would be nice to do a little better IMO.

There isn't a cross reference for the AMSOIL bypass filter. They are made by WIX for AMSOIL to AMSOILs specs only out of a synthetic nanofiber material. I would be willing to help with offering the wholesale pricing for whoever goes down this road. If you are interested in just getting the complete AMSOIL setup, I can help with pricing on that as well.

Just PM me if you are interested.

Gonna dig this back up. Does anyone know if a Amsoil EaBP100 filter will work on BPD's bypass oil filter kit? If not does anyone know what it would take to run this filter on that kit or is it even worth it? The reason I ask is that BPD's filter filters to 9.9 microns and this Amsoil filter says it is 98.7% efficient at 2 microns "absolute". Just looking for some insight. So school me guys.

Been a while since I have been over here. I personally can't say for sure. It would depend on what the threads are on the BPD setup.
