Sinister Coolant Kit and Amsoil Bypass Install

So today I installed my Sinister Coolant Filter Kit on my 06' F250. I already had the Amsoil Bypass Filter kit installed. I had an issue that I assume alot of people with the bypass filter have. You cant just bolt on the Sinister Coolant filter kit per the instructions. I had to modify the coolant bracket by cutting off 3/4" and drill new mounting holes for the filter base housing. Then I had to drill new holes in the bypass mounting bracket and weld up the old ones so I could rotate the filter down to make room for the new coolant filter to fit. Took a few hours counting painting the new bracket but I think it looks great and you can change out both filters without removing either bracket. There is plenty of room in there still!!

Thanks man. My Amsoil is from Oil Charge Systems out of Houston,TX and it kinda made it easy IMO. Your set up is super sweet man! I couldn't find many pics of people with the two filters in the same location so I posted mine.

P.S. I love Amsoil and was glad to hear sumone else on here supporting extended drain intervals with oil analysis.

You know, I can feel a difference in the engine, can you?

I think people don't want to or can't accept that oil can make that big of a difference. My family has been using it for the last 18 years with awesome results!! My first truck (91' Ford Ranger) had it in from my Grandpop. My mom was driving it one day and the oil pump went out. She drove about 12 miles with no oil pressure and we figured it was ruined. We changed the oil pump and the truck ran like it never saw anything bad happen. We sold it with 200,000 miles on it and the engine still hadn't been overhauled and didnt knock, rattle, or burn a drop of oil and if we took it to a mechanic he would compliment on how peppy the truck was for only having 80k miles on it...should have seen his face when we told him the odometer had rolled over and it had 180k on it lmao.

LOL. I see you have a 2wd too! That's pretty rare on here. I leveled mine out with a 2" kit. If you have any questions on it, send me a PM.
