i was reading through this jeep forum and i found this. its all about a oil filter bypass system. inetersting after reading a little bit, and looking at the pictures, lol. anyways i was just wondering:

A: do they make these for our cars? there website just had "universal" aplications, and with my luck that means there is no way in hell they would fit my car.

B: what do you guys think? is this guy trying to sell his product and blowing smoke up our asses? let me know.

Heres the link: http://www.jeepbbs.net/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3624&highlight=oil+filter

i did a search didnt see anything.

In my honest opinion, there are many more reliability issues you need to worry about with the GA than worry about the filtering of the oil

***ditto***

IMO filtering the oil is one of the most important parts of a engine.

The guy is an apparent chain smoker, lol... If it ain't broke, don't go tryin' to fix it... Leave well enough alone and don't screw around with oil filtration issues.

It's interesting to say the least...... But. I was reading the install instructions on there website & they didn't say anything about the old oil filter thats mounted on the engine ie block off plate. So in esence(sp?) your using 2 oil filters to get the numbers that guy got & your spending close to 50 bucks on oil filters. Unless your building a full out race car I don't really think that systems worth the money and even then there's better out there.

A true remote oil filter setup uses the the location of the old oil filter on the block instead of the setup that system uses . I haven't looked into it but you could probably find a better set up out there . Maybe Summit

:wtf Why would you use it on a "race" car ?
They are more worried about flow, than filtering.

I thought all by-pass systems use 2 oil filters ?
1 for the full flow filtering & 1 for the by-pass filtering the fine particles.

IMO:
I can see this being beneficial to a diesel engine.
But on a gasoline engine: unless you are doing really long extended oil change intervals, why bother.
(unless maybe your vehicle has a huge oil tank, & it is a bother to change the oil)

If we were so worried about filtering, where are all the people here that use:
AMSOIL Ea Oil Filters ?

The first cars I ever saw using remote filters were dragster/ racecars .You are right most setups do use duel filters . I've never seen a setup like what this thread was about. What I've seen are like what's at these 2 websites. That doesn't make me wrong just misinformed. LOL . I guess it still comes back to. Is spending that kind of money for a dailey driver worth it . If your keeping the car for the rest of your life possibly yes . If it's a dedicated race car then absolutely . Just my .02 . Give me a little credit I've been around a few more years than you have. I know I'm not an expert .
