Bypass filter, are they worth the cost.

Researching some bypass oil filters. Are they worth the $500 investment for daily driver and occasional towing.

I don't believe so. That's just my opinion though.

Any input 97HotShot that might actually help the OP? Like where he should be looking? I don't see the bypass filters as necessary unless you plan to use extended drain intervals and have oil analysis done.

I'm just wanting to protect my investment the best I can. Traditional filters are 98%at 20 to 30 microns. Bypass filters go down to 2 microns as well as add to oil life. I will test the oil at normal intervals. I'm still stock and plan on staying that way. There is plenty of power for my needs. I'm planning on keeping this truck for the long haul and want to take care of it early.
The FS-2500 is what I've been looking. Ok $623.00 not $500 excuse me.

Adding life to oil can be a misnomer. They keep the oil clean, but don't prevent the oil from shearing and molecularly breaking down.

I have been putting them on my vehicles for almost 10 years now. I am an Amsoil dealer, I don't realy sell it but it is cheaper for me to be a dealer. You save a lot on the bypass kit if you are one. They really keep the oil clean. Running a high quality synthetic oil is a must or you will be replacing filters very often. It is easy to install. Any more info needed just ask. You have already done research though so I would go with that.

Sorry for my ignorance on this subject but would it make a difference if you are deleted or not? I mean to need a bypass filter?

I would assume it would be more beneficial to those that are undeleted because of the soot in the egr
