Talking Bypass filter installed!

Well, I finally got around to changing my oil and installing my engine oil bypass filter kit from NUC motorsports.

It went quickly and easily, took maby 10 minutes. Install the new oil filter cap, new oil filler cap, run lines down to the frame rail, bolt on filter base, install filter tighten lines and go! I ended up putting it on the drivers side frame rail using the top two bolts of the transmission crossmember. (No drilling required!) I think it was supposed to go on the passenger side but my coolant filter is there. I lost the instructions, but its pretty straight forward install and they aren't needed. I like that the kit keep that big filter tucked up by the frame rail out of harms way.

Anyway I'm very happy with the kit, seems to be high quality and well thought out. Very nice anodized billet aluminum caps/base and braided stainless steel lines. Not to mention that Amsoil EABP100 is a beast of a filter! It holds over 1.5 qts of oil! Reminds me of the filters we used back on the farm, feels good to know I have that protecting my engine. I don't expect to go any further with my oil changes, I'm at 12.5K now (Thanks Blackstone), but if it helps keep my engine healthy then its worth it in my book.

The place I got it from. Ford 6.0, 6.4 and 7.3 Oil Bypass Systems and Billet Aluminum Filter Caps

Well here are a couple under hood pics. Yes I'm going to secure my lines so they aren't just lying around.

Yup it keeps the stock filter, which is full flow and this one is fed a small amount of oil from there. And the return is in the oil fill cap.

Are you going to do an egr delete and ccv mod? You must live in an emissions testing area?

No i dont live in an emissions testing area. And I do have a egr delete kit but who knows when I'll get around to actually putting that on. And my egr coolers and valve were replaced under warranty at about 95k so I'm not too worried about them. Ya I have a CCV kit sitting around here as well. But I think the next thing on my to do list is install my transmission bypass filter.

Very nice kit and very clean install, did you have to add a couple quarts to make up for the extra volume? And before the kit blackstone labs had you going 12.5k on your OCI?
