    Anyone running this oil bypass unit? Saw it reviewed on one of the off road mags on a 4runner with the 1gr and it got a positive review.

    I know theres one guy on here running a similar setup. My question is: Is it worth it if you're oil change interval is at 4-5k miles?

    Found something...

    Amsoil bypass filters.

    "EaBP Filters should be changed every other full flow filter change up to 60,000 miles."

    I dont know what its "rated" for, But my buddy that check it out when I took it apart, said it looked like it could be rated between 10 and 15 microns. Know way to accurately tell without a microscope. He did say it was the best looking media from any OEM filter he has seen.
