Coolant filter bypass????

I was talking to the technician at the shop that I am getting ready to take my truck to for an EGR delete, and he said that this mod is not necessary and not to waste my money on it. I would like to hear from you guys and maybe some other techs, and see what you think.

SOLD-2000 F250 SC 7.3

New-2004 F250 CC 6.0
New oil cooler, EGR valve, Thermostat
EGR Delete on new EGR cooler()
Coolant filter
Zoodad mod
Cat and muffler delete
2" leveling kit

Coming soon- SCT Tuner, and head studs as soon as I can cause the ones in it to fail!


Yes I'm a Republican, because we can't all live on welfare!

I have it on my engine. 2 filters so far. First one I changed at the 300 mile mark. A few table spoons in the filter. Let the next one go for 3000 miles, and found roughly 1-2 table spoons in the filter. I'm not cleaning the filters out very well though. I usually just turn them over and let stuff run out before opening.

I'm going to let the next filter go until it clogs, then will see what is in there.

Here is a picture of a clogged oil cooler. So, it's your choice, I'm glad I bought one.

Thanks brother, I just wanted to hear from people who did it. And if it is a good thing to do, or necessary.

Thanks guys! I am going to do it, when he finishes with the EGR delete I will do the filter bypass myself.

Is it better to get the kits with the inlet/outlet valves on the filter head, or does it matter?

I have the valves, built them myself. I can turn the outlet off and see if it is still flowing into degas. Some have put a sight glass in the outlet hose to watch the coolant flow. Also, depending on location of install, it's cleaner for changing the filter.

I have about 1500 miles on my kit and have changed my filter at 400m and at 1000m and both times a good about of nasty sand fell out of the filter. I also did not cut them open, but just turned em over. Its not necessary to have, but its well worth it. That amount of sand will do damage over time to waterpumps, radiators, heater cores, and the rest of the coolers.
