Oil Bypass Filtration System

Recommended Posts

Hey gents, First post, pretty new the the forum thing. Anyone out there have feedback on an Oil Bypass system on our trucks? Worth it? Go the AmsOil route or custom? The question was brought up to me a week ago and got the wheels turning; my truck had a rough life before me, essentially everything BUT the motor has been rebuilt my me just to get her to do her job again. With 358K on the original motor, would an Oil bypass system be effective in anyway. Just trying to put my money where the ol' gal will get the most love long term.

I doubt at this point an oil bypass would do anything to help.   after that many miles the damage is done.  I would just keep up your oil change and filter stuff.

After much time reading and asking...

My final decision to make me feel better was to just change filter more often.  Found out it was was easy to get lost in all the hype about oil.  Just my take.

the last 4 vehicles I have owned made it beyond 250,000 miles running smooth when I sold them.  No special oil, no 3k oil change, nothing out of the normal.     If I remember to change the oil at 5-7k I did, if not I did not worry.        I ran them hard and they did fine.  


I don't make a habit of worrying about oil. Heck I don't even know when I did the truck last...

I look at guy like @cajflynn that past the 1 million mile mark on Delo 15w-40 engine oil and fleetguard oil filters and changed oil every 20k miles. Still he made it past the 1.3 million mile mark before wrecking the truck in a traffic accident. Then there is @dorkweed that went over 84k miles on a single oil change with a MotorGuard bypass filter. The oil he was using was Walmart SuperTech 15w-40 and all he was doing is changing filters, taking a test sample at 7k miles and topping off the crankcase.

Thanks all for ya’lls input; its appreciated and respected. To be honest, this forum is amazing for troubleshooting those thins that make you go “huh”; but surfing the sight and reading all the input on different subjects can get overwealming; and honestly makes me second guess what Iv always done. This is my 4th 2nd gen, 2nd  24valve. This truck has been my biggest learning curve with easentially rebuilding the whole thing... it truely is that Johnney Cash song.. “one piece at a time”

I saved a fair bit of $$$$ and oil running a bypass oil filter on my 04.5.  Never had a poor oil analysis using TP (toilet paper) as the bypass media either.
