I use an XDP coolant filter kit, about $130 or so. From some reading, most coolant filters are around the $130 to $150ish range. Not sure if you're planning on an oil bypass kit or not, but if you are then you might check those out for mounting options for the coolant filter.

Although my comment seems off-topic, it comes from my choice of products. I got the XDP coolant filter first, which installs on the passenger side of the engine next to the radiator. Pre-cut lines fit perfectly. Then I got the NUC oil bypass filter and it mounts in the same location. That Amsoil filter is HUGE so can really only go there when mounted vertically (there are some kits that mount the filter at an angle but not the NUC). So, I'm left with relocating the coolant filter. Some pictures on the NUC site showed the coolant filter mounted to the same bracket as the oil filter, and because the coolant filter is shorter it can fit closer to the engine. All great until I remember the XDP coolant filter adapter mounts from underneath. So, either drill / tap the adapter to mount from the back or make a mount out of angle iron or some other material. I chose to make the mount; now the coolant return line is about 3" too short.

Short story long, if you will be adding another filter thingy, determine if that thingy will cause an issue or not. In my case, had I thought ahead, I would have purchased another coolant filter kit that doesn't mount from the bottom. I do, however, like the XDP kit.
