DIY Coolant Filter Idea

Before I attempt to do this next weekend, I want to tap the considerable resource of knowledge that is Powerstroke.org. I plan on using the blocker plates for my EGR system. I also had an idea to run a coolant bypass hose to route coolant out of the EGR coolers. As an adjunct to that idea, I thought about adding an inline coolant filter right there. I should not have to worry about restriction of flow of any kind and it would be considerably less expensive than the kit from Sinister or Dieselsite.



This is the filter mount to use with Wix 24070 coolant filters.

Tell me your thoughts on this....

I have the idea to run the coolant from this line



Then run it to the filter and then to this line.



There is a space on the firewall which is easily accessible from underneath the truck to mount the filter base.

Looks like you and me have the same mentality. If you can do something yourself for cheaper, Why not? Good job on your filter. I gave up on mine after seeing how difficult it would be to get to those lines without removing the wheel well and such. I may take a page out of your book and do what you did. Do you have any trouble with backpressure feeding from the heater line to the degas line?
