Default Bypass oil filter systems?

Just ordered my first diesel, and have been reading quite a bit about oil and fuel filtration. I don't want to start a war, but what are the best mods to do to the truck in terms of filtration when I get it?

It sounds like a bypass filter for the oil system is a good thing to do, and several companies are making some pretty impressive claims about their systems: 1World claims 15K miles between oil changes, Frantz claims 30K miles between oil drains (change their filter element every 5K miles and add a quart of oil), Amsoil says extended oil change intervals are possible, and a table on their site suggests 60K miles between changing the bypass filter element, but they suggest following regular oil drain intervals.

Anyone have experience with any of the above, or other, systems? I've done a little looking around, and the Frantz (~$350) and Amsoil systems (~$400) seem to be lower cost than 1World (~$525). Frantz has replacement filter elements for $15, Amsoil replacement filters are $45, not sure about the 1World units.

From the above numbers, the Frantz system seems to be the way to go, although they have a 'unique' filter style, to say the least. Folks who have them have nothing but positive things to say. Of course Amsoil has their supporters too, as I'm sure 1World does as well.

Anyone here have thoughts one way or the other?

I suppose I should add that I live in CA and can't do any of the delete mods, and I want to make sure my warranty stays intact. If adding a bypass filter system will affect my warranty, please let me know. If there are other CA-legal, warranty-legal things I should do to protect the engine, I'd appreciate your suggestions.

Thanks,
Greg

You might be better off on the Cummins forums, this place is all about big tires and sport bars.

I'm running the amsoil on a sinister diesel kit, been on for 7,000 miles or so and still flowing free. I also use an LF9028 two stage filter which offers 2 micron filtration of a certain percent of oil. Bottom line is you keep your oil clean and you're doing nothing but favors to your engine and turbo.

Btw, Cummins recommends 15k Mile oil changes already. You can extend them out to 90k though. Mobile one with bypass is one of the oils that can do it.

Check your owners manual for oil change mileage until your Factory Warranty is up & then do whatever you want mileage wise

I worked 10 free oil changes into my 2016 Eco-diesel purchase
I wish i had known about the Fuel Filter changes that need to be done every 20,000 miles, i would have tried to get a discount on those too

A lot of the Truck Stops have switched over to Bio-Diesel at the pumps, that crap can really mess up fuel filters

My owners manual says 15k miles same as Cummins. What does it say on the 6.7's?

I am running the Amsoil bypass system and it's well made with filter size options which I really like. I'd follow the advice of others about sticking with the 5k interval for warranty purposes (don't give them a chance to deny). I still drain at 15k with a Donaldson engine filter, but only replace the bypass filter every OTHER change and that's still way overkill. Pro-tip, don't forget about the crankcase filter which oftentimes gets overlooked. I change mine every 30k which, again, is overkill, but I like knowing I'm not gunking up my turbo from too much bypass vapors.
