Your Engine Oil Has Never Been So Clean

Bypass Oil Filter System Filters Your Oil Beyond Expectations

The Bypass Oil Filter system uses the EaBP filter element for the best filtration protection against engine wear and oil degradation. Cleaning oil to the lowest ISO standards, the oil filter system installs in conjunction with the engine’s full-flow oil filter. The system operates on a “partial-flow” basis draws approximately 10 percent of the oil pump capacity at any time. The filter element (EaBP) traps soot and extremely small contaminants down to 2 microns with 98.7% efficiency. Oil is filtered several times an hour, sending “analytically clean” continuous oil back to the engine.

AMSOIL Spin-On By-Pass FilterAll engines operate in much the same fashion. The oil pump pulls engine oil from the sump to the top of the engine, lubricating each moving part via small oil galleries. High-quality, clean motor oil is key to preventing wear, reducing friction resistance, preventing sludge buildup, and keeping temperatures within normal operating range. But a standard oil filter media often can’t perform at a standard that protects your engine fully. However, a bypass kit offers filtration that can’t be beat.

Many truck and equipment manufacturers now install a bypass filter from the factory. For those that don’t, an AMSOIL Bypass Kit can be installed that fits your vehicle and its lubrication requirements. Whether you’re interested in extending the intervals between oil changes or simply discovering how to clean engine oil the best for dependable machinery, a bypass filter offers exceptional filtration with benefits that include:

  • Improved oil flow
  • Easier access to oil filter replacements
  • Oil that protects better against wear
  • Filtration down to 2 microns
  • Reduced oil consumption since clean oil seals piston rings better.

Tips to Install Your Bypass Filter Kit

Selecting the right oil filter bypass kit is the first step. AMSOIL offers specialized kits for Ford 6.0L, 6.4L, and Ford 6.7 Powerstroke applications, the 6.7 Cummins engine, as well as GM 6.6L Duramax diesel engines. Most engines have the option of either a single or a dual remote bypass filter system. For all other applications including gas-powered engines, a universal oil filter bypass kit is available. 

Attach the filter mount in a location that is protected from road debris and can be accessed easily for filter changes. Route hoses away from sharp or hot components and free from sharp bends. 

Fill the bypass filter with oil prior to starting the engine after installation, and watch the oil pressure when it is started. Check for loose fittings and leaking connections. 

Should you desire to take samples for oil analysis, the optional petcock kit makes drawing oil samples easier than you could dream. 

The best types of oil filters to use with the AMSOIL bypass filter kit are EaO oil filters, available from AMSOIL along with the lubricants you need to ensure long-lasting performance.

See how to install the AMSOIL Bypass Filter System. Mark Nyholm demonstrates two different installations.

Ford 6.7L Power Stroke

RAM with a 6.7L Cummins engine

Single Bypass System

Optional Bypass Filter Sizes

  • BP90 (height 7.5 in.)
  • BP100 (height 6.0 in.)
  • BP110 (height 10.5 in.)

Single Bypass kits can use the adapter block for easy access to high pressure oil supply and low pressure return. See “Bypass Kit Manuals and Parts List” for options.

Always use the largest filter elements when possible for maximum filtration capacity. “Optional” smaller elements can be used to accommodate confined space installation.

Dual Bypass System

Optional “Full-Flow” Filter Sizes

EaO Full-flow filters will fit any “Dual Mount System” (excluding *BMK22). Select the largest filter when possible. Smaller filters used when space is limited for installation and oil change service.

  • EaO26 (height 6.77 in.)
  • EaO15 (height 5.37 in.)
  • EaO42 (height 3.75 in.)

Optional “Bypass” Filter Sizes
