If you think the best way to protect your engine from grinding out the cylinder walls, scoring bearings, and overheating is by keeping the oil perfectly clean then this is the most important letter you will ever read.
Here's are two reasons why:
Reason #1 Dirt and particulate contamination in your engine oil is destroying your engine because your main flow oil filter is not cleaning it all out. General motors proved decades ago that 60% of your engine wear is due to tiny dirt particles in the 5-15 micron range. Sadly oil filters can not catch all of the really small dirt in your oil. Is it really dirt? Yes, the dust and dirt contamination is sucked in through the air intake system (make sure you have an excellent air filter).
Reason #2 Water and condensates from the fuel burning in the engine create acids that eat your engine from the inside out. If you do any short distance stop and go driving it is critical that you get the water out of your oil to keep acids from eating your engine alive from the inside out. Your main oil filter does not get water out which means acids are forming in your engine.
Bypass Filtration Will Remove Particles of 1 Micron or Less While Getting the Water Out of Your Oil
Because bypass filters only pass a small percentage of the oil flow as a side stream they can be very restrictive and filter out the ultra fine particles that main flow filters can't even touch. The dirt particles in the 5-15 micron can not escape the bypass filter which typically process all of the oil in your engine in less than 10 minutes.
Benefits of Bypass Filtration
AMSOIL EaBP Filters have an efficiency of 98.7 percent at two microns. At normal operating RPMs the EaBP Filter will filter all of the oil in a typical five quart sump in less than 10 minutes.
The superior construction of AMSOIL EaBP Filters provides better sealing and increased longevity along with superior corrosion resistance. AMSOIL EaBP Filters have a marine powder coated exterior; and their zinc-dichromate base plates increase rust protection. EaBP Filters have a nitrile HNBR gasket and an orange silicone anti-drain valve. The two stage pleated and layered cellulose/full synthetic media has an efficiency rating of 98.7 percent at two microns.
When used in conjunction with AMSOIL motor oil and an AMSOIL EaO or Donaldson Endurance™ filter, the EaBP90, 100 and 110 Filters should be changed every other full-flow filter change up to 60,000 miles or one year whichever comes first. When used with other brands of motor oil or full-flow filters, the EaBP Filter should be changed every other full-flow filter change. AMSOIL recommends using oil analysis when extending oil drain intervals.
AMSOIL recommends changing the EaBP120 every other full-flow filter change up to 90,000 miles or one year whichever comes first. Extended oil drain intervals should always be accompanied by an oil analysis program.
Increased Oil Capacity
The increased fluid system capacity and filtration life provides improved oil cooling and ensures that equipment constantly runs on clean oil. Engine efficiency is increased, providing extended engine life.
AMSOIL has designed a high-efficiency by-pass filter element that is also a soot removal device. AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Filters use a synthetic/cellulose sandwiched media. The inner layer of the element is composed of a highly efficient cellulose media covered with a full synthetic media outer layer. These filters remove 39 percent of soot contaminants less than one micron. Soot removal efficiency increases approximately 10 to 14 percent when the EaBP Filter is used in conjunction with a standard full-flow filter

Hey if you only plan on driving your vehicle for 50,000 miles before you trade it in then this is probably not something you need... but if you want to keep your engine pristine for 200,000 miles or more than you better take a closer look at a bypass oil filter system.
