nice install. I did mine a couple years ago. easy install. just an FYI make sure that the coolant hose does not rest on the red pipe. it will rub it and eventually rub through it. I noticed mine was rubbing just recently and had to bend my bracket back so its flexed back some to stay clear of the pipe.

I just did mine a few days ago. My feed line for the filter is T'd in the heater core hose in front of the oil filler neck. Did I splice in the wrong location? I can't take a pic as my truck is getting some bady work done, but the T is almost directly under the CAC tube. Did I eff this up?

As long as it's not rubbing you're fine.

I cut an extra hose in half and zip tied it to my coolant filter hoses where it was rubbing as an extra buffer to keep it from rubbing through the actual coolant line.

Looks good, plan on getting one, when I do the flush and elc switch. still in warranty and oil cooler is within 8 deg tops. I love the powerdercoated turbo pipe, now i found something else to do to my engine bay! On a side note, how do you clean your engine bay? What do you cover, pressurewasher vs hose?? looking good

^^^ yeah not worth doin the filter till after you do the coolant swap i did the cat swap a little while ago plan on using a good solid day and as far as the clean engine bay it wasnt really dirty to begin with the trucks only got 40k but i sprayed it down with some simple green then just sprayed it off with the hose and let it dray then sprayed everything down with hot foam tire shine looks better than when it rolls off the show room floor lol

Judging by the very new looking "powerstroke turbo diesel V8" badge and the what appears to be a perfect condition rain guard above the turbo, I can only assume:

A. You have never had to work on your truck aside from routine maintenance as these two above listed items are always compromised during engine repairs.

OR

B. You have spent so much time under the hood fixing the engine and in doing so destroyed the above listed itmes in question. After the many repairs, you have decided to purchased new items in these locations making the underhood look good again.


Scenario A...I hate you and scenario B, I feel for you.

haha well it happens to be scenario A. other than oil changes an fuel filter changes she has served well under the hood that being said i only have 40k on the clock only a matter of time before she goes under the knife for ARPs, egr delete, powermax turbo, oil cooler and MAYBE bigger injectors and an air dog, but i also spend a lotta time cleaning under the hood took make the up coming work a litter easier an cleaner
