Which coolant filtration system do I buy?

Alright folks. I've seen and read about the dieselsite, IPR, and dfuser coolant filter kits. The question is, which one do I freaking get? The more I read, the more I'm not sure which one to get. I'm sure I can probably just pick one and go with it, but I would like to hear why you bought the system that you did. Thanks for the help.

Ipr is a full flow coolant filter, all other coolant filters are bypass filters an will take considerably longer to filter the coolant. I have an xdp bypass coolant filter.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Unfortunately had to Sell my ......2004 KR CC SWB FX4 - Edge insight cts, blue spring upgrade, updated HFCM drain plug, XDP coolant filter, CAT EC-1 rated coolant, Custom Diesel EGR delete, CAT delete, Rotella T6

Can coolant still flow through the IPR if the filter gets clogged (i.e. is there a way around the filter)?

No, coolant can't flow through any filter that clogs......you take the filter element out and clean it. When I say bypass filter, it means that only a small amount of coolant is filtered at a time, they clog eventually too. You change the filter and throw the old one away. With the ipr filter, the worse that can happen, is your heater will quite working untill you clean it. The ipr can be used with their oil cooler relocation kit also, but thats a different subject.

So if the filter clogs, coolant still runs through the other important areas, it's just that your heater won't blow hot air in the cab? Is that right? I want to make sure that if the IPR filter clogs it won't cause the engine to overheat.

There are several different ways to plumb the IPR coolant filter, you can put it in line with the heater core, parallel with the heater core, or with the coolant manifold. IPRs coolant filter is the best on the market right now, it filters way more than any other coolant filter.
