DO IT YOURSELF COLANT OR FUEL FILTER

Dont pay for the overpriced kits for a anodized piece of aluminum and some hose, save your money and spend it on better upgrades. Im here to share the wealth, i did some reasarch and here you go,

Go to your local hardware store and buy all the hose and clamps for this install, roughly
10 ft hose
8 hose clamps
2 tee fittings
2 valves to mount to block ( not nessicary but when you change the filter you can close the valves and not loose much or any colant)

Order these from NAPA

Filter adapter base
part number# FIL 4763
$49.99
NAPA AUTO PARTS

Colant Filter
part number# FIL 4070
$15.49
NAPA AUTO PARTS

Or if you wanted to use it for an aditional fuel filter
Filter part number# FIL 3225

Either way this is way less expensive then the kits and will help save your money for better mods and longevity of your engine.

I will post install on this thread

I made my coolant filtration myself and it was cheaper until I bought 10 feet of silicone hose ( lasts forever ) and that alone was $75 so basically same price as the sinister kit!! Just my .02
