Coolant and Oil Bypass Filters

After reading a lot of information here, I have decided to install a coolant filter and oil bypass filter on my 2007 F-350.

I'm considering either the Dieselsite or Sinister coolant filters, they seem pretty much the same and I like the NUC Motorsports oil bypass filter but it seems to mount in the same location as the coolant filter. Has anyone installed both a coolant filter and an oil bypass filter inside the engine compartment? I would rather not mount the oil bypass filter below the engine as the plumbing is more difficult. If I can't find a place inside the engine compartment, I'll probably go with an Amsoil oil bypass filter.

I just completed an oil change and used Schaeffer 9000 5W40 synthetic oil and was amazed at the difference in the sound of the engine. Much quieter when starting. Next I'm going to do a coolant flush and use Rotella ELC coolant (the only Cat EC-1 compliant coolant I could find in 100% strength) as soon as I get he Fleetguard Restore and Restore Plus I ordered.

This should keep me busy for awhile.

Thanks for any info.

Paul

You can mount both bypass filters in the same area but you will need to make your own mounting bracket.

Hey Paul, you can definitely install the NUC oil bypass and either of the coolant filters you mentioned. They will be in the same area, but not the same exact place.

I've seen pics on here of someone that drilled another set of holes in the NUC bracket and mounted both filters on that. Scotty2280 did it here

I put my bypass oil filter in the passengers bumper, in front of the wheel.
