By-pass oild filters

Has anyone installed a by-pass oil filter, such as Amsoil, TransDapt and others make, on their Taco?

I am considering it for my 2001. I do not run synthetic (too many miles by the time I got it and 114K now) and am considering possibly a under the hood install if I can find the real estate.

If you have, what filters do you use? The Amsoil set-up uses theirs, however are a little pricey. Did you run into any issues?

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out screaming "WOO HOO, WHAT A RIDE !!"

I plan on running one on my 07 for sure, and maybe my 03 as well.

Amsoil are $$ but they are the best, hands down. If you look on thier website it shows 2 installs on 3.4L's

114K isnt too late to add synthetic. I started my 92 on it at 150K with no issues.
