Cool install but man is that a spaghetti factory under the hood. Nice blue/red colours!

Its a Forester not a diesel truck.

What are the benefits this will provide? Will you run 16,000 to 20,000 oil changes?

I don't plan to save on oil changes (almost decade I'm with Redline 5W50).
Recently I had Manley H-Beam connecting rod broken in my Forester, so the engine was fully rebuilt (new block, Darton sleeves, JE pistons, nitride treated crank, stronger connecting rods).
How is better to break in new engine: with bypass filter or without? smile

Nice looking rig. Yes, just leave the bypass filter on there to catch anything coming off your engine block sense the rebuild. No rust on that truck- do they spread salt or gravel/sand on your roads during the winter?

Thanks! I was pretty sure, that my mechanics will install it with bracket (left side, close to fuse box). They decided different place, which I can't even imagine before and I' m happy with their decision.
