Thumbs up Coolant filtration System for 6.0 L PSD

This is to anyone who has a 6.0L PSD. I bought a coolant filtration fit for my 2005 F250 from DieselSite.com and just cut open the filter after one month of use. The amount of sand in it was UNBELIEVABLE!!! If you do not have one of these kits get one ordered today! Do not think about it for a few days. This is one upgrade you need to do unless you have $2100.00 you want to throw away for a new EGR cooler and a OIL cooler! These kits are very easy to install. I had mine installed in less than an hour.

does this filter remove the additive in the coolant to prevent cavitation?

Awesome filter kit, I really like it too. Install was easy and it looks very nice. I think if these trucks had coolant filtration from day one the warranty claims Ford paid out would be less than half. There would be no problems with the EGR or oil coolers plugging and the resultant issues that they compounded.

NO the only thing it will remove is the casting sand that should have been removed from day 1. If you don't have a fuel pressure gauge you should because low pressure KILLS injectors and it is a 95% chance that you are running with low pressure at WOT. Mine only had 17k on it and i had 44 lbs and 45 is a low as you can go, now i have 62 idle and 58 WOT something to look at.
