Installed Frame Mounted Coolant Kit From DieselSite

Well got it in yesterday and it went on this morning. Wasn't as bad as I thought. The toughest part was mounting the base to the frame. After that though the install went pretty easy. For those like myself who have an oil bypass kit mounted using a rail off the alternator this kit from Dieselsite solves everything. Highly recommended!

How long should I go on the initial filter and then there after on the other one? I think I read somewhere, 500 miles on the first, that sound right?

Looks easy enough, how much is that kit?

edit add: If I do the EGR delelte, do I still need this kit?
thanks

I can't remember exactly, but I thought I read where you change it the first time after one month, then three months the second time, and then once a year. BTW the install looks great!

I couldn't because my oil bypass filter bracket stuck to far out. I kind of like it better this way anyway. Changing the filter will be a piece of cake...

I installed an oil bypass filter and a DieselSite coolant bypass filter on the same bracket that came supplied from NucMotorSports' oil bypass system. The bracket attaches to the two alternator bolts and the entire assembly hangs between the passenger side battery and the radiator. System is sweet and tight. I am up in the woods quite a bit and didn't want anything hanging on the frame rails. Just this morning I changed the coolant filter without any issues.

That's cool, my bypass kit isn't from NUC, so I was stuck with looking at different options. If you look at where I mounted my coolant kit it doesn't hang any lower than the transmission cross member. Not to say anything would ever happen, but if it does hopefully I'm able to close the valves...haha
