How hard would it be to build my own by pass and use still use the amsoil filters? I have been doing some reads and since i have to purchase my own disblock anyway why not just DIY it?

I've bypassed alot of stuff on the old ones. I guess I'm not following. Just a bit more info please. Could be because I'm a bit hungover. Also, JC Whitney has alot of bypass stuff that usually comes with instructions.

It wouldn't be hard, just time consuming finding the parts you need. All you need to do is find an oil filter mount block that has the same size threads as the AMSOIL filters you want to use, then it is just a matter of plumbing it up to the existing system. You also will need to find a way to either plumb it to the existing oil filter mount or just "T" it off where you oil pressure sensor goes and run a return to the engine. Some just drill a port in the oil fill cap.

I'm sure there are parts available in salvage yards. Like my old GMC Sonoma came from the factory with a remote oil filter. So find vehicles that had remotes from the factory and you can go from there.

Here is the thread sizes of the standard EaO filters. The EaBP 90, 100 and 110 filters all have 1"x16 threads.
