Has anyone installed one on their diesel? Did you see any benefits?
BE DAMN SURE you get everything tight and don't induce a twist into the lines when installing.
We have a truck in the shop now with a bypass system installed, has 56 miles on it, and the mains are wiped ! the installer of the system either left the line loose or put a twist in the line which let it loosen itself up and vehicle lost oil pressure on the road. $10,000 NON warranty repair, the pisser for this company is, this is the SECOND truck in 2 months that this has happened too (first truck had 11 miles) .
It is a significant enough event that the company that is installing the systems on the trucks right off the assembly line sent 2 men to the body manufacturer to check 384 trucks for the same condition.
That being said, I couldn't tell you how well the systems work or if they are a viable upgrade to your truck, just be damn sure the install is top grade and check everything!
We did one on my dads dmax, install wasnt hard at all.....Its only been on for like 2000 miles though but after 7500 hes going to send an oil sample for analysis because when he bought the kit they give you 2 for free...
