Bypass filter for CRX

Okay - now that the Silver Sipper is getting back on the road next week, I'm ready to put in a bypass filter. I would LOVE a dual-filter setup if I can a) afford it and b) fit it in the engine compartment.

Suggestions, comments, pitfalls, other? I'd like to hear from anyone who's set one of these up. Best place to obtain one? Cheapest place? I know I want one so I don't need to be talked into it - just need to know about the installation more than anything.

Why does your sig say "looking to trade for a CRX" when you already own one? Also what is a bypass filter?

buddy of mine runs dual filters on his chevette. he used a relocator attachment where the filter went and put the filters towards the side of the engine compartment.

I will say that he has a lot of room in his engine bay but on top of that, his filters are huge. his oil changes usually run him $40 or so. I think he uses synthetic.

I have more than one CRX I want to experiment with - that's why I'm looking for another. Plus they are great for parts cars.

A bypass filter is a setup where you relocate the oil filter via hoses and adapters, and it allows you to use much larger filter(s) elsewhere in the engine bay. I know people who change their filter but never their oil by this method - you lose a quart each time the filter (usually significantly larger) is changed, thus no oil changes. Also, you get MASSIVELY increased oil filtration so your oil stays much cleaner - thus extending the life of the oil and the engine. These setups are often used with Amsoil or other true synthetics (POA), giving OCI (oil change interval) of well in excess of 50,000 miles. I've personally witnessed a Jeep with over 1 million miles - never changed the oil with this setup -just swap out a quart at a time.
