Ford is a name that has been a part of American history for over a century now, and today the diesel trucks that roll of their lines are still some of the best on the market. But, they can always be made better and by adding a Ford bypass oil filter kit to your Ford truck you’ll be able to increase the lifespan of the truck, and much more.
There are several Ford bypass oil filter kits to consider investing in, depending on the make and model of your vehicle and what you’re looking for. Some examples of your options include the following.
6.0 2003-2007 Powerstroke Kit
This is a kit designed to be easily mounted using factory bolt holes and sits neatly beside the powerstroke engine. It is well worth noting a couple of things:
- The IPR brand coolant filters are the only option that will work under the hood with this kit.
- If a non-IPR coolant filter is under the hood already, a 6.4 under chassis kit can be used on the 6.0 truck instead.
- This option is available in clear and black, depending on the overall look you want to achieve.
6.4 2008-2010 Powerstroke Kit
These are designed to mount underneath the chassis instead of inside beside the engine like the 6.0 kits. They mount on the passenger side traditionally, but can be mounted on the drivers’ side as well. On the 6.0 trucks, if a coolant filter is mounted under the hood that is something other than IPR, this kit can be used instead.
As with the 6.0 kits, you have your option of choosing clear or black depending on the style you want.
The Best In The Business
Good bypass oil filter systems will improve almost everything you get from your truck, including longevity, and more. By installing the right one for your Ford, you’ll give your truck an upgrade that won’t disappoint.
How it works
All bypass oil filters that return the oil to the fill cap or oil pan and not to the pressurized system must use an orifice to retain the engines oil pressure, ours is .032 in diameter this is one of the reasons you do not need large diameter hoses, it takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes driving down the road to cycle one complete sump of oil, much slower than the full flow factory filter but the key is it is cleaning at least 25 time better than the full flow filter because all full flow filters are 25 to 35 micron and the Amsoil filter is 1 micron.
