The IPR high flow coolant filter is the best on the market and works great in the original configuration. I truly believe (my opinion) that it will filter more coolant at any given time running in parallel with the heater core than running through the coolant manifold that filters post oil cooler.

Thanks bud! I appreciate the props. Your thread was one of the first two that I read. (can't remember if I read yours or Don's first lol) but either way it was a great laugh and an awesome start for inspiration to try mine on my own. Thanks again man. And as far as thanking me for my service no thanks necessary it was my job

I am in the process of doing my studs and gaskets i just read through this post all 58 pgs I got to wonder if the demise of your stock cooler wasnt sticking that tube deal into all the water journals. I mean im bulletproofed so it doesnt much matter but id have to think even though you did suck alot out there is a possibility you knocked off alot more that never got sucked out. Also alot of that mineral deposit is more than likely from running straight water all winter Coolant has stuff in it that prohibits corrosion. On a side note if you were disappointed when you had to cover up your ficm wait till you gotta cover that transfer block.

The only problem with your thesis is that I flushed the cooling system about 3 months before I did my studs and gaskets. I flushed with Fleetgaurd Restore and VC-9 and lots of tap water then drained and refilled with elc coolant again and my temps never budged from the 5* spread I originally had from replacing the oil cooler a year before then. My temps remained no more than a 5* spread all the way until I drained my distilled out after reassembly of the top end from gaskets and studs and adding coolant to get the proper mix.

Even after reassembly and refilling it and taking it for a hour long test drive not including the hour it sat and idled in the driveway before the test drive the spread was never greater than 5*. But as soon as I drained the distilled water out and added my coolant the temps immediately spiked to over a 17* spread. So it wasn't caused by not having coolant in place during the winter or even using the homemade tool to suck out the water jackets as I should have taken before and after pictures of them but you would be amazed to see how clean they actually were and all the garbage that came out of them is in the pics of he buckets full of black and red.

Also if you don't want to go through 58 pages of a thread go into your user settings and set the post per page count from 10 to 40. Makes it a lot nicer lol.

Its still alot of reading no matter how many posts per page!!! but i enjoyed it and learned a few things. The only thing is that straight water will always lower deltas and maybe it started to plug when you were running straight water but i have read countless threads where guys have 15-25 deg deltas then they start the flush process and the delta drops to 5-10 bc they are just running water with some chem. When you ran straight water was it Tap or distilled? I quess i was wondering cause I am waiting for my heads and i thought about doing this but intead of a shop vac i have a power evac. Like i said im bulletproofed so im not worried about a cooler plugging but i just don't like the idea of loose crud in my system. I am disappointed to see that with there was so much stuff in your journals even after a vc-9 and restore flush just prior to dis-assembly, makes you wonder just how well that expensive stuff works. I figured my journeals would have been clean as a whistle due the all the oil that was pumped into it prior to BPD install!!!!! ahh its funny now but at the time it wasn't. Have you ever used the 3m Relco (?) Gasket removers i thought about using one for alum. to get all the gasket off

Bryan, don't you still have a BPD setup you're supposed to install first?


Wish I could spring for a new turbo and injectors for my rebuild. Which one did you end up going with?

Yeah I still have to install my BPD kit. Waiting on the weather to come around. It's been pretty cold here and without a indoor facility to do it in I'm choosing to wait for a warm spell. I also have BPD's oil bypass filter kit and my turbo to install. Lol all that along with doing the MAD mod to my up pipe.

It's a modded stage 1 for the time being. Me and Adrian have been talking for a long time and he wanted to try some tweaks to the stage one and wanted to see what it could do for my 175's. So I bought it and am going to try it out. At this time I don't have a TON of money to throw at my truck for go fast goodies so I'm going to be stepping up each time when I'm ready. I'm going to do a stage one now then a hybrid and eventually a stage 2. I will have write-ups/reviews on each turbo once they go in for how they perform on my truck. Those will be separate threads though. Stay tuned this is going to get interesting!
