Coolant filter needed after BPD remote?

2003 pre serial 100k 6.0, yeah an early early one. Ya know that AB or A or B on some parts? Yeah all A..anyways.

I bought the IPR coolant filter setup first. Standard setup, cant post links. Sinister has one too.

I bought that and installed because of the stupid oil cooler and coolant deal with its problems.

Well not long after I did the BPD remote oil cooler with low temperature thermo.


My question is, if I dont need to worry about the oil/coolant issue, would removing the filter be ok?

It has added 10-20f to my ECT since install with its across the engine bay hoses.



Opinions invited.

you won't benefit from the filter as much as i you had the OEM oil cooler but no way should that setup bump you 20*

however, if removing it resolves the issue then win win

I am also puzzled by the raise in the ECT. If you have a BPD cooler and add an IPR coolant filter before the oil cooler, which I think is what your post says, if your EOT starts rising, that is an indication that the IPR inline filter is clogged and EOT will drop once you remove the filter and clean the contaminants.
