Specifically, is there a Factory oil bypass valve WITHIN the Engine Block
to allow oil to be bypassed before it enters the oil filter in the event th

I can't find a reference to anything like this. I'd be very surprised if i
t had one. The only bypass I know of dumps oil back into the crankcase in
an overpressure situation, but that won't help oil the engine.
