I run a Wix or Ac filter. Mostly Wix.
Does that make any differance?
=====================================Not really Bill.
The stock filters that you mention are fine though, provided your
sticking to the factory recommended oil change.
Don't quote me on exact numbers, but I believe most stock oil filters
only filter down to something like 20-25 microns.
With something like an Amsoil Bypass Filter, you'd be getting much
better filtration than this, and also, some of these bypass filters that
could be utilized are as big as semi truck filters.
The additional filtration capacity is tremendous versus stock, but the
downsides are initial cost for the kit, the installation of the kit, and
finding room in an engine compartment to mount such a large filter, and
bracketry. With a bypass filter, the stock filter would also remain on
the engine, so you would have in effect two filters.
The installation of a bypass filter is not all that complex. A Tee is
installed on the Oil Sending Unit, and a Line from the Tee will send oil
to the bypass filter. The oil could return to somewhere as simple as
the Oil Fill Tube on the engine.
Please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to persuade you to use a
bypass filter, nor spend money, but I would pretty much stick with
Factory recommended intervals if you're staying with factory stock sized
oil filters, regardless of brand.
