Question about coolant filter install?

Got a sinister coolant filter kit. Installed it today. I noticed that when you get it installed and open the valves that the coolant will push what air it has in the return line back into the system. Can this cause any problems? I've heard if air gets into coolant system it can cause cavitation.
Thanks

This air should be pushed to the degas bottle. Plus I dont think this is enough air to cause any issues....With in just a few passes I would think it would escape to one of the several hoses hooked up to the degas bottle...Would everyone else agree with this statement?!?!

Yes agree. I have the Diesel Site system. If your are really concerned open the degas cap let it run and watch for bubbles. Likely none or very little. The air will escape.
