sinister coolant filter installed

installed my filter today and it was real easy install took me about an hour...I was disappointed because I thought because like it shows on the 6.0L i thought that it would all mount under the hood and look really good....turns out it mounts on the passenger side frame rail....I didnt buy it just for looks but that is why I bought the sinister over the diesel site cause it looks better but really doesnt matter how it looks you cant see it but as long as it works im happy

Does anyone know the filter numbers for other brands that will work with this kit? other then the wix filter cause I dont know where to get them...Maybe a baldwin or a cat filter?

I've been watching these coolant filter posts and seriously considering Installing on mine. I'm sure there are instructions with the product, but, when the lines are cut, is there a lot of coolant spill?

All together it was about 1.5 gallons that came out when I cut the heater hose. None came out when I cut the coolant return line. I had a bucket under the truck which only cought some cause it runs down and finds its own path to the ground. The smart thing to do would have been to drain some coolant first

For some reason I have a hard time posting pics on here but if you look under your truck on the passenger side frame rail there is a transmission cross member and those two bolts sticking out there thats where it mounts...now that its on my truck you cant see it unless you get down on your hands and knees even with my 6 inch lift

*****Does anyone know will any coolant filter work with this system cause I want to replace the first one fairly quick

Just make sure you get a filter that does not have SCA's added. I believe the baldwin filter is B5134

Take the part number off the filter you have now to NAPA and they can cross reference it with all other brands. I use to have to do this a lot when my dad own his own shop cause customers were cheap lol. I like running the Baldwin filters myself.
