Holy dirt in coolant filter!

I just cut open a coolant filter after 15k miles and had over 1/4 cup of casting sand and junk in it! I changed my first one at 10k of usage and it had nearly the same amount! I can email pics to anyone who wants to post them for me. I can post them from my phone.

Are you monitoring deltas? What kind of coolant filter are you running?

I run the filter from diesel site.com I have the edge CTS and my monitor my deltas. I was seeing 10-15 unloaded and 30+ towing. I just replaced oil cooler and installed a bulletproof EGR cooler last week. The filters are the Baldwin ones. I ditched the gold for cat ELC this time.

So you got that amount of crap in your filter before or after you switched to ELC?

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
