Since my first engine went south because a wiped Reed cam and now the talk of wiped roller cams (which I am now running), I think I want to block off the oil bypass to keep all the crap in the filter. Maybe this will save the internals. I'm currently running PTE's Turbo Saver which always brings filtered oil to the turbo. What is the down side of blocking it off? How do I do this? I only have about 500 miles on this engine and I do not want to be yanking the intake every other weekend to take a look. This cam situation reminds me of a carnival or circus game. "Spend your money and take your chances." Or is it a sucker born every minute? I thought the R&D was done upfront by the cam companies. But as I read the horror stories I realize that the R&D is being done in the field by the comsumers.
