CONGRATS! Another Bay Area Guy on here... And Elite too! :bounce:

No offense taken J/K. Something I wanted to do anyway. I thought that I need to get a few more posts under my belt to call myself "Elite". Does it matter? No I thought not.

Ipozestu, I was a member here for almost 4 years before I became Elite:p Then I finally found out that Rick used Pay Pal and I quickly became a supporter :D

Welcome to the club!

Welcome to the elite's. :cool:

Where is the Amsoil by pass filter mounted, I couldn't tell from the pic.?


I am not really happy where I mounted it, I will be relocating it. Currently it is mounted to the A/C coil support. If you look at the second pic of the front of the truck you can just barely see the mounting bracket.

Where do you think youmight relocate it?

I want one but have not come up with a suitable mounting location.


I was thinking on the frame rail inside passenger side. Some place that it is accessible.

I have considered that location also. Please post when you relocate it.

will do

Congrats Jeff on becoming Elite :D
