Elite's engine mounted fuel filter delete.

Well just got my truck back from the shop having the HPFP replaced under warranty. This truck needs to last me a long time so I will be adding an Air Dog II. With the exception of not having to buy 2 filters and only using one is there any advantage to installing Elite's engine filter delete kit? Also what's the advantage of a ceramic coated downpipe as opposed to a SS one? Thanks in advance for any replies.

I cant imagine there would be any advantage of deleting the engine mount one, If you add the Airdog you wont have to change your factory fuel filter NEARLY as often, so I would keep them, Cant have too much filtration! Also don't the factory fuel filter only come as a set? You would still have to buy the set to get the frame one, so whats the point? And I would think the ceramic downpipe would would keep the heat in your exhaust a bit better. Maby it would keep under hood temps down a bit?

The way I look at it, yes, when you install the AD2 if will filter down to 2 micron which is smaller than the upper engine fuel filter. That basically makes the upper one irrevelant, but if your not running some crazy high HP engine and going wild customizing it why bother spending the money just to delete the bowl? Seems pointless to me and a waste of money... I'd just replace the upper bowl filter once when you install the AD2 and maybe change it once a year after that seeing it wont get dirty what so ever. It's extra insurance in my mind and that money on the Elite bowl delete can be put towards something more useful... like a coolant filter As for the ceramic DP, I wouldnt bother. It holds the heat better but to coat it will cost more than the DP itself. I use it on my race car and looks nice/works very well... but seemingly pointless again espically if your not gonna take your exhaust manifolds and all other exhaust pipes off and do those also.
