just a quick coolant filter question?

Guys I just installed my Sinister coolant filter kit after doing my EGR delete and a few other things.

My question is, I drove around a bit and then came home to check everything under the hood and touched the sinister coolant filter holder and that mo fo was hot.

I was kinda worried but didnt know if this is regular or not?

It should be hot, about 190F or so (the same temp as your coolant).
This is actually how I check my coolant filter, touch it after getting to normal operating temp. If it isn't hot, it is time to change it.
