Installed my coolant filter but have a ?

Dumd question I know....I just installed my sisnister coolant filter which went in very easy.Being I am finding my way around this 6.0 without alot of experience.I lost around a gallon or so of ford gold.I know I know but the system was just flushed at the dealer and for now gold it is..I went to the dealer and picked up a gallon of gold and poured it right in.Should I have mixed with distilled water?I hope I didnt cause any damage by doing this and should of asked before hand.Thx for the help in advance......

I lost about a gallon doing mine and replaced it with destilled water. I imagine either way is fine.

Best thing would have been to dump it all, flash it and put in CAT ELC coolant. I don't know if that is pre mixed or not, if it is your fine, if it isn't one gal shouldnt hurt
