OK, so 10 members have looked at this post and no input, so I'll chime in. If there claims are true this sounds like an OK filter option. A big issue with a 6.0 is the shear wear on the oil. In 5000 miles a 6.0 will shear 15w40 down to 30 weight oil. This is mostly due to the action of the HPOP. So by the time you are ready for an oil change the oil is physically worn out. There are better experts than me on the topic of oil in a 6.0,but I'll put my 2 cents in and get the controversy started.

I am only looking at it for a filtration option like an oil bypass filter just to keep it clean and there are some oils out there that don't just break down that fast, you are talking about oil quality, I just want to keep it extra clean

There isn't much you can do besides bypass filtration and frequent oil analysis to extend the change interval. All oil will shear down to an unusable viscosity long before 50,000 miles as this thing claims it can keep anoil clean, or rather two to three times the normal interval.

Shear is the main reason why PSD owners have to be adamant about oil changes, not dirt.

That device has been around for quite a while and is certainly a valid option for a bypass oil filter. It works.

It looked good because you don't have to buy filters for it

For me to believe that it works, I will have to see an oil analysis for it.

I have only done one OA with my bypass oil filter. I used mobil 1 5w-40 and I went 8,000. it was not in BAD shape but it was ready to be changed.
