If they increase the bypass valve setting, they better also beef up their oil filters too. The bypass valve is what regulates the max delta-p across the media. Increase the bypass valve opening pressure and there could be even more pressure on the media, resulting in more chances of tearing.

So does shrinking the media area (assuming the same media).

There is another thread about a Baldwin filter having a issue. Looking at the websites, both Hastings and Baldwin filters are owned by Clarcor. Then, in Feb. 2017, Clarcor was bought the Parker Hannifin Company. http://www.baldwinfilter.com/resourceslinksofinterest.html http://www.hastingsfilter.com/abouthastingsclarcor.html http://www.purolator-efp.com/About-Us/A-Parker-Hannifin-Company https://www.parker.com/portal/site/PARKER/menuitem.4a7ba99b3c73ae7cc39acea5427ad1ca/?vgnextoid=d92e6a03af66a510VgnVCM100000e6651dacRCRD&vgnextchannel=c36e4e8717f5a510VgnVCM100000e6651dacRCRD&vgnextfmt=EN&vgnextcat=Clarcor%2BProduct%2BBrands&relatorId=e47188a979bcf510VgnVCM100000e6651dac____&vgnextrefresh=1 Reminds me of when Mann+Hummel bought Purolator, then, quality control issues start popping up.

The technical bulletin is saying they raised the filter's bypass valve pressure setting on the PF63 & PF64 because of the oil pump main gallery feedback control. They also say: "Note: Any aftermarket filter must also have an internal bypass valve opening pressure specification, element integrity, filtration performance, media particle trap specification and burst strength that is equivalent to the ACDelco PF64/PF63E filters." Thing is, they don't say what those specs are on the ACDelco PF64/PF63E filters except for the bypass valve setting of 22 PSI.

The total message from that memo is that the pressure wave (spike) at startup is longer lasting and possibly more severe with the new feedback control strategy compared to other older "normal" engines. (Actually I think other engine brands have that same control law, BMW for one...) For other engines without this strategy, there is still a violent spike at startup, just not as long lasting and severe as on the newer GM engines. This is insight into bypass event physics. Thats the only reason I mentioned it. GM is worried about them and now strongly recommends 22 psi bypass pressure filters to handle it.

Filter manufacturers know those specs. And field experience over the last 5 years have shown that few burst or leak. Certainly if you buy a 22 psi bypass oil filter (Wix 57502 and Fram Racing Oil Filters HP18 & HP19) for your GM engine, you can bet the engineers know its durable at that high bypass pressure!

Wouldn't that equate to more pressure on the media and wouldn't that be increased with cold oil?
Of course thicker oil and higher flow both increase delta-p on the media. What I'm asaying is that the "oil pressure you see on the dash" has nothing to do with the delta-p across the media. If there was 150 PSI of oil pressure inside the can with no flow, then the delta-p across the media would be zero. If an engine was very tight and restrictive to oil flow the oil pressure could be very high, but have a pretty low oil flow volume. That would also mean the flow through the full flow filter was relatively low and give a low delta-p.
Got it, thanks.
