Re: Anyone heard of the FS-2500

These guys have been selling kits for years and they work. I had planned to install one on my Super Duty but sold it instead.
Most quality bypass filters do a great job...

EXPENSIVE!!! But they have been around forever. I will be on the look if they come out with one specific to the GC. It would have the right bracket and hoses.

Nothing new, just another companies idea. Cummins has used bypass filters for years on most engines larger than 19 Liter, many large displacement diesels have a bypass oil filter, id say the smaller 5.9/6.7 probably don't have them due to cost.

Re: Anyone heard of the FS-2500

Bypass filters from my experience are generally much larger than the regular filter, take a bypass % of the oil that is going through the system, and filters it to a tiny micron level. Usually they run about 3-5 oil change intervals.

The most overlooked benefit in my mind is the extra oil you can now run. That increase in volume helps control heat as well!

Re: Anyone heard of the FS-2500

I used it on my cummins. I worth while piece when your using them to work hard. its overkill for an ecodiesel (IMO), I would just use a catch can, and service at slightly less intervals than normal.

Re: Anyone heard of the FS-2500
