Default Here are a couple new products that keep unfiltered oil out & improve flow!

SacCityCorvette's
Precision LS Billet Barbell and other Oil System Improvement products!

Also, available for the new Gen 5 LT1/LT4!

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 past the Barbell it will go unfiltered directly to the Cam Bearing, Lifters, Crank and Rod Bearings. (See Diagram Below) The factory Barbell is approximately .020 to loose so particles as big as 500 Microns can leak past the factory Barbell. Your oil filter will filter out 15 to 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 same as the filter.

Another important part is the shaft of the Barbell. The oil has to flow around it to get though 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 build?

See Our other Oil System Performance Improvement Products below.

Fits LS1-2-3-6-7-9-LQ4-LQ9-4.8L-5.3L-6.0L-6.2La and more!

Only $26.95 Free Shipping

Here you can see how the unfiltered oil gets by the loose factory Barbell. Also you can see how our Barbells smaller shaft will improve oil flow!


Check Out all three of our Oil System Improvement products!

If you don't know much about how the Barbell works check out video.

Video of how loose the factory Barbell really is compared to our billet Barbell.

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.

Has anyone ballooned or blown the oil filter off of the engine using the bypass plug?

We have been running the Bypass delete for a couple yrs on our CTS-V that pushes 70-75 psi at 6600 rpm and one in our 440ci Stoker Zo6 that pushes 85 psi at 7000 rpm. It pushes 115-120 psi when cold. We go easy on it when cold. We run Wix and Fram racing filters. No issues.
BTW a good filter is rated for over 300psi.

Thanks
Christian

What are the part numbers on your preferred oil filters with this plug?

Right now we are running dual remote mount HP1 Fram filters on both cars.
They have a thicker housing and sturdier internal parts.
The pic is under the front of the C5 Zo6 440ci.

Thank you,
Christian

Dual remotes is what i have always run in the past when eliminating the bypass. Plenty of filter area.

One other thing is most filters have a bypass valve built into them.
