dieselsite fuel/water filter experience

Has anybody installed the dieselsite fuel/water filter?? Is it really worth the $600.00 plus. This seems to be a very good way to keep the fuel clean and seperate the water. We all know what Ford does when we get water in the system. Any feed back would be appreciated. Taking a long look for my 2012 F-250 6.7.

The filters used in these are not really rated for the flow our low pressure fuel pumps put out. I've done some research on these and I'm going with a much bigger filter than the dieselsite one uses. It will be done in a couple months and I'll post pics.

Well it seems that everyone has there own opinion. What I like is the ease of installation and the filter easy access. Does any one else make the quick disconnect fittings?? maybe that would be the key to making your own version of filter, but it seems that dieselsite spent some time putting this together. How about a little more depth about the dieselsite system.

Ive talked to the guys at diesel site and Im going to get one in the future. Some guys on here like it and some want to make their own. I like the set up and the ease of removing the bowls to flush out the content of the bowls. Good looking set up if you ask me.

I talked to Jim at diesel site (think thats his name) and he told me that these were made specifically for the 6.7. So, I would think that they are rated for the 6.7?

Well as I said before everybody has ther opinion. But this is about the easeist install that I have ever seen on any diesel and it appears that the dual filters are as big as the stock filter. And you got to think Dieselsite did there homework before they threw this out to the public. You know that any water in the cheepo fuel pump Ford put on these trucks is going to cost you a ton of green, since Ford will not stand behind there warranty if there is any water or rust damage to the pump. I guess it depends on how much you want to spend. Its like the old Fram commercial, do you want to spend a little now or a lot later it's your choice.

Bump

any more experiences with this set up? How are they working during the cold winter months? Pros and cons? I guess I'm curious if it'll be to much wear on the fuel pump since the fuel will have to pass thru 3 filters, especially during the cold alaska winters
