In the Porsche 356 and 912 world, the common opinion among all people I know is that one of the best things you can do for your engine is to convert from a bypass to a full flow filter. People have been doing it for at least 40 years. Those engines are higher revving, and don't have a floating oil pickup, I guess that makes a difference. It should be possible to convert or adapt an oil pump to include an oil filter and Bypass valve with a modern Spin on filter. I guess there is not much market for such a thing however.
Perhaps Hans knows about Aircraft Engines that were converted to full Flow oil filters. I Heard that was common, but those lycoming Engines are closer to Porsche than Packard Engines. Given that we all change our oil often enough, a full flow might not be a world of difference compred to if we were really daily driving.
