First mod under the hood done today!

DIY coolant bypass on the new to us 06 F350.

I know, not really a major mod, but it comes up often enough in here.

Thanks to dfuser.com for not being stingy with having their install manual out there on the web. Took any confusion out of where to hook the hoses up and what was needed.

Grand total was just under 70 bucks.

Baldwin CFB5000 base.
Wix 24070 filter.
Two 3/8s brass barb fittings.
Two 3/8s npt brass plugs.
3/8s brass T barb fitting.
3/4x3/4x3/8s plastic heater T fitting.
3/8s Gates heater hose.
Various hose clamps.

Last but not least, I banged out a mount that I was happy with this morning. Took about 45 minutes. Lots of great ideas out there using google images.

I chose to forgo the ball valves. Just don't see a need for it. A little spillage if there is any won't hurt anything. As silly as it sounds I just wanted the cleaner factory look.

I'll run the first filter till it starts going cold. Will be intersting to see how long that takes.

Thanks for watching.

Thanks guys.

Next item up for bid in the DIY catagory will hopefully be fabricating an oil filter bypass kit. That one looks to be a bit more of a challange to be done on the cheap.

Also, do you guys know if the motorcraft batteries you can see in my pics are what came stock in these trucks? Didn't see a date code sticker on them when I looked the other day, but then again, I didn't look real hard.

Bypass oil is another very good precautionary mod.

i would say that coolant filter was a great idea. I actually just installed mine and changed filters this weekend. When I drained out the old filter chit was just coming out of it. Plus my EOT and ECT temps are within 2-4 degrees of each other at all times. Gives a guy piece of mind.

That battery in the pic is not a stock factory battery, its the Motorcraft replacement. THe factory ones have all black labels.
