Thanks, I realize now what Amsoil means by a "by-pass filter." It is a filter that is added to supplement the factory filter. Looking further at their website, Amsoil describes it as follows:

"The AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter provides the best possible filtration protection against wear, oil degradation, rust and corrosion. Working in conjunction with the engineís full-flow oil filter, the AMSOIL By-Pass Filter operates by filtering oil on a "partial-flow" basis. It draws approximately ten percent of the oil at any one time and traps the extremely small, wear-causing contaminants and water that full-flow filters canít remove. The AMSOIL By-Pass Filter typically filters all the oil in the system several times an hour, so the engine continuously receives analytically clean oil."

This will not help me. I am looking to "relocate" the factory, full flow filter to a more convenient location/orientation for changing.
