I've never heard of the FS-2500 . But from what you guys are saying it sounds like a very good piece . I'm familiar with the Amsoil unit . If it's good enough for a big rig , it should be good enough for a pickup truck . I'm gonna read up on it myself and get back to this thread .

I think all of the by-pass systems will benefit these diesels and are worth adding. Having any additional oil filtration with the engine oil filter is more than enough as these engines have gone hundreds of thousands of miles with just one filter. Yes, the 2500 may be a superior filter, but the cost for a marginal increase in filtration makes it less desirable.

This may be true but most oil filters r 7 to 12 micron filters and the FS i no for a fact filters smaller than 3 micron witch is smaller than a human hair. That said to each there own but just the money for a cummins motor alone is way more expencive than a simple bypass filter. i no want i turn for Rs in my truck and the oil analysis alone give me a great piece of mind. the FS granted is not cheap by anymeans but i feel is well worth it......i got my first one for free at the diesel power challenge and have since purchased 3 more for my other vehicles....

Again, its all in what you want. I really didn't think my truck needed it as I am dpf deleted and egr unplugged with a smarty but my by-pass was free and I thought I might as well put it on. Amsoil products have been around for quite some time and are quality products. I change my oil every year need it or not so I really don't take full advantage of what a by-pass system is designed to do. I dont believe in the extended oil change intervals regardless of the brand of oil.

You can also upgrade the filter cartridge to .9 microns for a little more money. Nothing will get by that
