The DieselSite kit is what everyone recommends. I plan on installing one after I change out the stock coolant to an ELC coolant. The stock coolant contains silicates that plug up the oil and EGR coolers leading to blown head gaskets.

It will remove the casting sand that is left in the intake which will prolong waterpump life and cooling system in general. Here is the kit that most guys use. http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...S&Category=618

I have the Diesel site filter kit. My first filter I pulled and cut open, found about a table spoon of what looked like casting sand. 300 miles

Second one, 1000 miles, not much change, but still found "stuff" in the filter.

Third one plugged totally at around 5000 miles. Found quite a bit of "stuff" on element and I poured out the fluid that was in the filter can into a glass jar and found all sorts of stuff in it.

I'm glad I have the filter. Takes about 20 minutes to install.
