I plan on running the Amsoil bypass filter until it's cool on the outside. Of course that may change for the second filter once I cut open the first filter.

I have the Amsoil Dual Remote cleaning my 6.4 Powerstroke with 25000 miles on the filters. They are cold on the bottom 25% now, and soon will be cleaning my Detroit 4-53T. When they are totally plugged I'll cut them and show.:) Could be quite a few more years mind you for this to happen:)

The thing I often relish is that Amsoil uses a leaf spring, and yet no one ever complains about it. But when you see a leaf spring in a Purolator, MC, or some other filter, folks whine all day about the "cheap" construction components. Personally, I have nothing against the leaf spring; coil or leaf is fine by me. I just note for the sake of irony the way some folks are willing to overlook some things due to brand loyalty or bias.

Same goes for "cardboard" end-caps on the media. Few realize that Bentley filters use fiber end-caps as well, yet no one ever worries about how their Bentley survives such an atrocity. https://store.millermotorcars.com/Bentley-Filter-Element-11D-Oil-Filter-p/079198405-d.htm


This is not a condemnation of the OP of this thread; just an observation of some of our BITOG faithful.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Couldn't agree more. In the decade I have been using their filters I have had 0 issues and when I cut open the filters they are doing their job well. Plus the UOA's show low metal counts so the combination of filter/oil seems right. thumbsup

A while back was someone claiming "there is no such thing as a (useful) pleated paper bypass filter!!!"

The claims are there isn't any "depth" to the media.
