I built mine like Dieselsite's. I came out the same as if I had bought it.
HOWEVER I changed where my filter returns to.

Dieselsite. I couldn't build it any cheaper plus couldn't make it as clean because i couldn't find some of the speciality fittings

Okay well i had seen a few online a few were cheaper than Diesel site but i do like the fact that u can change the filter on it without leaking alot of fluid..i just wish the filter block looked like the one from sinister Diesel but oh well i just wanted to know what yall guys were running and yall opinions!

I put together my own DIY kit, I got the filter base from Zoro Tools for $28 bucks so I thought I'd have this project under $50, well I was wrong!!!! The guys at DieselSite aren't making a fortune off the kit unless they are using air hose fittings because they are way cheaper than the fuel line fittings I went with, but the total price for my DIY ket was probably $75-$80. I will eventually plumb the line into the heater hose return because it does take longer for the motor to get too it's normal temp. but for now it's OK, here's how mine came out.
