Hello, I did the full coolant flush about 18 months ago. I got on Ebay and picked up a filter kit and installed that last October. I changed the filter after 3 months since I just did a flush and the filter was clean. The recommendation is change after one month, then another three, then annually. I jumped right to annually since my recent flush. I don't know if is 100% necessary, but if it saves my oil cooler then well worth the 145.00. Hope this helped.

Well I guess you can't really see the fruits of it till down the line but over all build quality and what do you think so far? And I'm assuming you didn't get the kit with the oil filter?

I may never know if I wasted my money, but I had the money and would rather spend it this and be safe then sorry. I didn't get a Sinister kit. I got the whole thing including hoses and three filters off Ebay. Dfuser is the name brand I got. The kits are on Ebay still, but no hoses and filters.
