AMSOIL BMK23 oil filter relocation/bypass cause issues?

does anyone know why the BMK23 causes "oil pressure issues" that everyone says they have? which I don't understand why they do.

I know the bmk23 comes with a "smaller" (3/4-16 instead of 1-16) full flow filter. is there a way to adapt it to run the standard cummins size filters?

I want to run a remote oil filter aswell as a bypass. but don't want to plumb the bypass into the oil cap or have to drill and tap anything. and if I could have it all in one simple mount that would be even better.

Why not use a Fleetguard LF 9028? It spins onto the stock filter housing and incorporates a bypass element. I'm currently using them with 15,000 mile filter changes and 30,000 mile oil changes. Even at 30,000 the OA comes back as "continue use" but I change it anyway. Before you comment on it's cost, figure what the cost in actual money and hours buying and installing a bypass system would be.

A bypass oil filter has a pin size hole in it that the oil enters into the filter so they can't be used for a permanent type oil filter.

well, the main reason is I want it to be easier to do oil changes/samples right there on the side instead of struggling in the side there. cost is not a factor here, I simply want the best. to be quite honest I planned on/wanted to run both a amsoil bypass and the LF9028. but with the BMK23 its a smaller filter thread size which was the reason for my post.

I am aware, the BMK23 is a full flow filter plus a bypass.

Then you could do a lot better than an Amzoil product. Here's one option and there are several others.

The Amsoil duel bypass mount is what you. No drilling, no oil cap return and not all the extra hose. The single bypass is way different.
