What do you think about this eBay find, bypass oil filter kit with anodized caps.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FORD-...item3a5e0ce696

looks like a pretty good kit
not to mention the cool anodizing
doesn't leave much room for a coolant filter mount which i plan on soon
but i like the bracket it uses and i can always finr another place for the coolant filter
maybe right next to it

let me know what you think
if anybody has this kit on their truck truck that would be awesome too

Honestly it looks like nothing more than a couple of Amsoil filters coupled with braided hoses and anodized stuff.

Personally...in the ad they talk about going 100k miles with a synthetic oil...but there is no way in hell I would do that...synthetic or not. Too much is dependent upon the oil. And Amsoil only recommends extended drain intervals with their filters AND their oil.

For $400 bucks...IMHO anyway...thanks but no thanks.

well, i will not be extending my oil change cause i dont drive that much
i would rather change it regularly and be on the safe side
400 is cheap insurance either way
its your opinion and i appreciate it

If you went that route, wouldn't it just be easier to get the Amsoil bypass kit?

I have installed the Amsoil kit on a 6.0. That is the same kit; save the fuel filter cap, anodized finish, mount and $7 gauge. If you want the pretty stuff; this might be better suited to your taste.

I used a piece of 1" angle aluminum from Lowes for $6 to make my mount.

As was previously stated, that kit is no deal.
