IPR Coolant Filter-Company is Lacking, I aint' impressed
So I pay the $249.00 plus $20.00 shipping for the IPR High Flow Coolant Filter. Open the box and was pretty impressed with the filter housing. Then start looking and see that this company is taking ridiculous shortcuts. No instructions, finally found them on their website next to the product. Look at the instructions and they are horrible quality pictures. But just enough to give you an idea of how to install it.
The T-fitting in the picture is metal, the one supplied is plastic.
Then they want you to get an 11/64 drill bit to pre-drill two holes into the fender to mount the overly thick filter housing. Really you couldn't supply some self tapping screws.
After reviewing the bracket design I find it lacking as well. Looks like I'll be welding an angle support to the supplied bracket to make it more stable.
They also want you to buy their tool to remove the filter from the filter housing. Looks like i'll be making a spanner wrench to alleviate that problem too.
I figured since I was overcharged for shipping at least you could have supplied instructions and self tapping screws. Or hey how about using a decent camera to take the pictures posted with the instructions.
I don't mind paying for quality and this appears to be partially well built. I won't be buying anymore for my other vehicles that's for sure.
