Does anyone use this oil filter and what are the results? No bypass filter correct?

I like them and used them for years. They do have a bypass unless ordered without. Standard filtration is 45 microns. I still have one on my parts shelf, but went to a very large remote racing filter when I switched to dry sump.

Thanks

So what would be recommended for a bracket race engine only bypass or non bypass?

Also if a man wanted to dry sump this deal could he do so with the engine still in the chassis or would that job be better tackled with engine freshen up?

I don't know of any drag racers that would have a problem with a bypass. The oil is usually pretty warm for us, or at least it should be.

If you have a full chassis with motor plates, a sump swap would be pretty easy. If you have a cross member, the challenge could be swapping the oil pan.

Mine was a bit of a tight fit. Jet Boat Bob did a great job getting everything to fit without the car in his shop.

I have been using the standard System One filters on my BBF race engines since 1995. Mine has the bypass ball. It is a great way of keeping an eye on the health of your engine. If the car slows down...and the conditions did not change, the first thing that I do is inspect the filter.
It is a good idea to buy at least one o-ring kit to keep in your track tool box.
At the race engine shop where I hang out, we won't dyno a new engine without a System One. (Shop owns a couple)
System One also makes some very nice remote filter mounts.
Do Not use a System One filter with an adapter like a certain Moroso part that is flat inside the area between the O-ring area and the center stud. There must be a relief machined area to allow proper oil flow.

Keith - Great information as always, thank you. Does System one sell an adaptor or is there one you would recommend?
