Coolant filter question

Ive been looking at the sinister coolant filter but it just looks like alot of money for what is there... Soooo I starting looking for a filter base and filter and found the wix24019 base which uses the wix 24070 filter(napa4019/4070)
the base is only about $30 and the rest I would need is the filter's fittings and shut off valves and heater hose... Im thinking I would be a max of 50-60 all said and done but the thing I didnt like is all the bases I found were cast iron and the inlet/outlets are only 3/8 nominal thread...

What size is the inlet and outlet on the sinister? Is the sinister just cast iron or is it billet aluminum?

If its billet I will probably pay the extra money but if its just cast I gotta be cheap and save some cash..


Thanks

I think they are all billet. I know the dieselsite.com filter is, can't 100% say about the sinister.

The Sinister kit from I ordered through PTP came with everything, good instructions, and was very easy to install. After installing it, I would say that it wouldn't be hard to do yourself if you wished. The mount for the filter was a plus bcuz it didn't require any drilling.

Sinister is aluminum (appears to be billet), anodized blue. The hoses are very high quality also. But you could put your own system together for much cheaper.

I just installed the Sinister coolant filter on my 6.4 last week. The filter base is machined aluminum. The mounting bracket and included hardware worked as advertised. I'm happy with it.

I like that product it is also aluminum, now I just gotta find a place to get it...

Thanks everyone for all the help/input... I'm going to just make my own and save some cash and place it preferably somewhere under the hood if I can find a spot...
I'll post it up when I get all the parts and get it done...
