Here’s a look at the filter assembly broken down into its components. In the foreground is the bypass valve. It’s equipped with a 16-pound spring to ensure that the only time the filter goes into bypass mode the conditions will definitely be extreme. The filter media is cleanable and reusable. Simply blow or wash the screen, pushing any particles that may be trapped in it back out the way they came. Then blow it dry and reinstall it on your race car. Here’s our dyno cell setup for our testing, thanks to The NASCAR Technical Institute’s hospitality. The dyno mule is a previous-generation Dodge Cup motor that has been slightly detuned but still pumps out 700-plus horsepower. In the background you can see the dry-sump oiling system with the baseline oil filter (black) still attached.
