Any DIY Coolant Bypasses out there?

I tried a search but got tired of looking through threads that had nothing to do with it...

Basically I am looking for a DIY coolant bypass to put in the pickup in my sig, any help is greatly appreciated.

If and when I get around to this I will be using the Baldwin coolant bypass filter base. You can get them on fleabay for around 30 bucks with a filter. Two ball valves, two T fittings, and appropriately rated hose and clamps. All set. I don't have time to type out all the sizes at this time. I found everything I needed to know on a Google search instead of just relying on the search in here. Many of which of course lead back to here.

Can be done for under 60 bucks.

By the time you get all your components together, you will have spent about the same as the price of the kits out there. Go with the Dieselsite kit. It works great and hassle free install.

Just make sure the coolant filter does not have an additive block inside. I read some do which is what you DO NOT want.

I fail to see how 60 bucks = 129 bucks plus shipping?

Maybe my logic is flawed though.

Nothing wrong with pimping sponsors though either.

Not pimping the sponsors although to be honest, it was cheaper when I bought mine several years ago. Even still, you might also consider how much your time is worth running around chasing parts for this stuff. My weekends are my only downtime, so I want everything ready to go when the weekend comes around so I can tear into the project rather than chase parts.

Regardless, I applaud guys who want to find a different and perhaps better way to accomplish the same thing.
