My first filter was pretty nasty and I didn't even cut it open -I let it drain out some and saw sand filled coolant, the second filter that was cut open after running it about a month looked decently filled with some sand with other scale, and crud. The waterpump and the whole general cooling system gets a benefit from the filter. Something must be improved to have lesser amount of junk flowing with the coolant in there.
