PMM coolant filter install question
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.
