Best bypass oil filtration

What are all of you running for an engine oil bypass filter system on your trucks? And how do you like them?

What do you think is the best bang for buck?

Re: Best bypass oil filtration

There all good. They all filter to 1 micron. I went with oilguard because of price and the quality of the kit. I installed it with some miles on my oil change to start so it wasnt clear oil like some are reporting with the fs2500. I am sure if I start without any old oil at all, which would require a few oil drain and fills to get it clean, it would maintain it somewhat.

My last oil sample was high on viscosity even @ 8500 but I changed it anyways because it was recommended because it showed a trace amount of fuel. most likely from excess idle times. It makes a big difference on oil life and cleanliness. I pulled a sample just to see if you could see a difference and the oil was much cleaner even to the touch. It didnt have that gritty or dirty fell to it.

The fs2500 is like 600.00

The oilguard kit is 475 and has nice billet oil filter and filler caps for easy hook up of the lines. overall nice kit.

You can get those cap for the other ones too but they dont come with them. you have to pay extra.

No but you can always change them out if you like.



The one thing i liked about the oilguard kit was the fact it can remove water from the oil also.
