Ummm...spending more money on additional filters is about all I see you will get from it. Unless you really have a hard time reaching the existing oil filter and operate your truck commercially or in severely dusty conditions I don't see a benefit. I'd just cross reference your existing oil filter and find one that is a bit larger that will fit in place of the OEM filter.

I run synthetics and do oil analysis but I cannot comment on this. The UAO's on Titans I have seen are excellant from a wear metal standpoint, say, compared to the domestic gas trucks though they seem to chew up the active additives (if your familiar with TBN). It has been postulated that the chain driven DOHC are responsible for this.

Personally, I can buy a lot of oil for the cost of a bypass system, but it's your investment. To be fair, 3K OCI's are probably 10-15 years (or more) behind the times. The quick lube places like them though.

If your not familiar with this site I would recomend checking out the Oil Forums here. These guys are all over this stuff (bypass filtration systems).

Good luck.
