PMM coolant filter install question

All,

Installed a PMM coolant filter in my 6.0 this past weekend. Very happy with the quality of the product so far; I chose it because it seems to be a good value and because it uses a "no cut" installation.

A question for those who have installed the same filter: Installing the tee in the heater line to supply the filter ends up pushing the factory heater hose back towards the turbo downpipe. I still have clearance between the two, but the hose sits only about 1 - 1.5 inches away from the downpipe. I'm concerned about the heat and the hose shifting and potentially melting if it contacts the downpipe.

I know I can just cut some length off the hose to move it forward, but since this is designed to be a "no cut" solution, has anyone done anything creative to keep the hose away from the downpipe?

Thanks in advance.

Alternatively, does anyone know the part number of the heater hose that the filter supply tees in to (the one that is cut with the other filter setups)? If it's cheap enough, maybe I'll just cut this one and order a spare in case it ever needs to be restored.
Thanks.

Thanks. I guess the zip tie that's holding the heater valve to the firewall is doing a pretty good job of holding it away. I may try to add some additional ties or cut the hose (moving it around too much seems to crimp the hose up from what I saw).

I zip tied mine for a while, but I had to cut it when I did my oil cooler swap and never tied it back. I haven't had any problems either way.

Since the length of hose coming from the heater valve to the tee at the manifold is a relatively straight run, I've decided to order a 1 ft length of blue silicone hose that I can use to replace it, cut to the right length.

This way I'll be sure it stays away from the exhaust and I can put back the stock hose if I ever need to.

PMM should consider including this in their kit.

1 ft sections of the same blue silicone hose (3/4") with clamps are available on eBay for pretty cheap.
