Precision LS Billet Barbell Stops Unfiltered Oil & Increases Oil Flow.

The Oil Galley Barbell in your LS based engine is something that is over looked. And yet it serves a very important mission of directing oil to the oil filter. If oil leaks pass the Barbell it will go unfiltered directly to the Cam Bearing, Lifters, Crank and Rod Bearings. The factory Barbell is approximately .020” to loose so particles as big as 500 Microns can leak passed the factory Barbell. Your oil filter will filter out approximately 25 Microns depend on the brand of filter. Our 6061 Aluminum Precision Billet Barbell fits with approximately .001” clearance which will let only about 20-25 Microns pass by, that is the same as the filter.

Another important part is the shaft of the Barbell. The oil has to flow around it to get through to the oil port. Our Billet Barbell has a 30% smaller shaft for much less flow restriction.

We have also added a 1/4-20 threaded hole in the end of our Barbell for easy removal. Just screw a 1/4-20 bolt in and pull the barbell out. No more digging and prying to get the factory one out.

Better engine protection from much less and smaller particles bypassing, smaller less restrictive shaft for better oil flow, replaceable High Temperature Viton O ring and for ease of service a threaded 1/4-20 hole.
Why would you ever put the plastic factory Barbell back in your expensive LS engine and let unfiltered oil by? Check out the videos at our website!
$26.95

In the Diagram you can see how the unfiltered oil gets by with the loose factory Barbell and how the smaller shaft will improve oil flow.

Billet Bypass Delete Plug
Keep unfiltered oil out of your engine by plugging off the oil bypass check valve. The factory bypass check valve can let unfiltered oil into your engines bearings and lifters. Our Billet Bypass delete plug replaces the factory check valve preventing unfiltered oil from getting into the engine.

The factory bypass check valve is a safety in case the oil filter never gets changed and the filter gets restricted. Most oil filters already have a bypass built into them for this reason.

Why would you ever take the chance of unfiltered oil getting into your expensive LS engine? Install one of our Bypass Deletes the next time you change your oil filter.

A 1/4-20 threaded hole in the end of our Bypass delete is for easy removal. Just screw a 1/4-20 bolt in and pull the delete out if ever necessary.
Better engine protection from less particles bypassing.
Replaceable High Temperature Viton O ring.

I had trouble at first but I jammed a 3/8-16 bolt in the stock valve with my cordless impact and "force" threaded it in, rocked it to the side, and it popped out. A little cleaning and I was back in business. I tried on an old truck pan I had to make sure this method would work without damaging anything. I was able to do it on my good pan no problem a second time. You will need a 13mm, or 1/2" hex socket though to get out the threaded filter neck/insert. This was recommended to me after a quick PM to SAC City. Very fast customer service.

I have a dumb question. Why can't you put an o-ring on the other end too and block all the oil flow?

That's been asked. The O-ring hangs up on the edge of the orifice in the block, plus the fit is so close the amount of oil bypassing that end of the barbell is negligible.

If your doing the rear main seal, its a good time to toss the loose factory oil diverter/barbell and install one of our Precision fit billet barbells and start keeping unfiltered oil out of the bearings.
