SINISTER or DIESEL SITE

I'm getting ready to order a coolant filter and was wondering which one I should get. Is there a difference between the two? Is one better than the other? I like the way the Sinister looks. Just looking for opinions.

I like the look of the Sinister, but I have heard they leak. I think the bracket on the Dieselsite is a piece of crap. So I bought the Dieselsite because I can fab my own bracket later on and not have to worry about the leaks.

If you ever do the oil bypass, you will probably need to relocate one or the other, because most want to use the same space in the engine compartment. I already had the oil bypass on, and the dieselsite kit was easy to relocate because the hoses didn't have crimped-on connectors.

Just ordered the Sinister myself. Bracket looked much better and if the hoses leak I'll make my own. The Sinsiter came with the shut off valves as well, diesel site they were an $18.00 option.
