With those you are still only filtering to a certain point. If you are going to go to all that trouble at least add a By-pass filter to get the smaller particles.

Yea it is over kill and to be honest the reason why I got it is so I can easily add two sending unit sensors (oil pressure & Temp). I did not want to find some place in the block to Tap and worry about metal shavings getting into the block or remove the stock sending unit since I wanted the two gauges using different sending units.

Don't really have a write up, got a 2" wide and 24" long steel plate from HomeDepot and used a oxygen and acetylene torch/welder to bend the steel. Coated the steel after bending in bed liner. I tied the steel plate (support bracket) into the hood prop and the steel support for the fuse box / coolant reservoir.

The Adapter comes with a plate to go on the stock location and routed the lines up and around. you will just need some large open ended wrenches (15/16 and a 7/8).

The other + is that I have about 1.5 extra Quarts of oil in my system... takes about 7.5 to 7.75 Quarts of oil.

But yes on that picture the sensor is an after market Oil Temp sending unit.

Edit: I would like to do a by-pass filter also (since I now have the ability to easily access the oil.

Edit2: The kit is universal so it can be mounted any direction so they provide two plugs so you can have many different options for routing the lines. I just used my sending unit as the stop in place of the provided plug.

It cools the oil and increases the oil capacity over stock. Both are good things.

i guess if your running hard trails or aggressive off roading its more of a concern so i see that.

as to adding the extra sending unit i can see it being a logical way but i dont think i would have thought to go that way

also it will be easier to do oil changes and I won't have oil going all over the side of the block or control arms. Just put some rags under the filters and since they are strait up they won't spill all over the place. and they will be easier to put on and take off.

Wow cool we're talking about aircraft engines because of the way Lycomings and continentals are cool, [not via a radiator], I don't think you can compare their respective oil filters.

Just took apart a OE Mopar oil filter (was used on a 3.7 Jeep motor) and the bypass spring from it required 20 lbs to fully compress it. It took only 7 lbs to fully compress the Fram bypass spring.
