What's the bypass oil filter do? Better cooling or just longer engine oil life

Longer oil life will rely directly on oil testing. We can not say how long you can CORECTLY go on intervals because of different --driving styles--.

I am awaiting results from my oil test from BLACKSTONE LABS. 5w-40 with 8,000miles and an oil bypass filter.


coolant filter.
change to better coolant than motorcraft.
edge insight or scan gauge. Any insight will work well.
fuel gauge.
Modify the fuel banjo bolts or buy an updated set.


What are your intervals?
miles?
How do you use your truck?
what oil do you use and filters?
Do you use any fuel additives?
