Anyone here do any UOA and oil particle count tests before and after using a good bypass filter setup to see the deltas? I don't hang out in this forum much, so if there was a thread about this already I didn't find one with a search.

There was one from several years ago.... I'll go search for it

Thanks Linctex, I'll search some more too. I'm surprised there aren't a few "before and after adding a bypass filter" UOA & ISO particle count reports posted.

Thanks Linctex, looks like some pretty low ISO particle counts on some of those setups.

Are you thinking of installing a bypass setup?

I threw this together from random scraps & pieces
in my friendís machine shop one afternoon,
itís not able to filter down to one micron,
But I donít have maybe $10 in the entire set up so farÖ

Not really, but would like to see some good ISO particle count data of a "before and after" the use of a good bypass filter setup on the same engine under the same driving conditions and mileage.

That bypass filter setup you made looks good, what's it going on?

Wow, nice! I am going to have to remember that. That looks fairly easy to make. Now if a person sources cheap bypass filters they are set!

I think Iíll install it on my 2008 F150, itís sees a lot of highway miles

Thanks!! I got 4 of the Hastings filters for $10 plus $9 shipping on ebay

http://catalog.hastingsfilter.com/PartSpecification.asp?URL=PartEntry.asp&partnumber=LF334
same as:
http://catalog.baldwinfilter.com/PartSpecification.asp?partnumber=B164

I figure I'll run each one until it quits flowing (stops getting warm) should be good for 30,000 miles each or so

Yeah, I have a LOT of them to play with.

They are N-S-N-S-N-S-N-S-N-S except that gap has two opposite poles, so one won't stay flat... which is fine, it's the furthest from where the oil comes in.
