I am new here also and I have been reading about them non stop. I orders a Sinister yesterday. Mine was 160.00 but included 4 filters. It is a must have according to the ORG gods. lol In my case It is a preventative maintience situation, but regardless they are needed due to the casting sand that is still in the motor

I got the Performance Machine & Manufacturing one. Just installed it today. Overall I'm very pleased with the kit and would recommend it.

Um, yes. Between the casting sand and terrible gold coolant it came with, it's not pretty.

Is a coolant filter necessary if you flush the block of casting sand with restore then replace ford gold with ELC coolant??

If you can get it all. Which I don't see how you can.
And even if you just flush it, there's still so much silicate from the gold coolant, especially in the oil cooler, that it would to take too many flushes to be practical.

Its a cheap, peace of mind, kinda upgrade. It will definitely make your cooling system components last longer.

Yes you do. The casting sand continues to become dislodged from the inner surfaces of the block constantly. It's just the nature of the beast.
