If it can be posted how much is this kit?
Yes, I open the pet****, let it drian into a 5 gallon bucket, remove the filter, clean it, reinstall it, dump coolant from 5 gallon bucket back into the degas bottle.OCveloMan or Turbo60.....
Some stupid questions....
Looks like there is coolant in the system that is higher than the high flow coolant filter....is this why you have to drain the coolant first to clean the high flow coolant filter?
Are you just draining from the driver's side pet**** only?
I assume you then put back the same coolant you drained?
That would probably keep the transmission too hot for my purposes... mine runs around 150*-160* and the coolant temp is usally around 190-200. Given it's a heat exchanger, I would be caution given it would make the trans too hot.This may be a dumb idea but what about using two of your remote cooler setups, one that cools the engine oil and the second plumbed up to cool the transmission oil instead of relying on an air/oil cooler for extra cooling. I'm thinking that way the stock trans cooler could be tossed and that would improve rad / condenser cooling. Most of us have an EGR cooler delete so it's not like it would add too much heat load to the system.
Thank you!Yes, I open the pet****, let it drian into a 5 gallon bucket, remove the filter, clean it, reinstall it, dump coolant from 5 gallon bucket back into the degas bottle.
Sorry been away working on my other secret projects.Seems like the perfect solution. If the claims are correct, It seems I shouldn't be too concerned about dislodging crap during the chemical flushes.......whatever doesn't flush out, should be caught in the high flow filter before ever reaching the cooler.
Forget about it!!Seems like the perfect solution. If the claims are correct, It seems I shouldn't be too concerned about dislodging crap during the chemical flushes.......whatever doesn't flush out, should be caught in the high flow filter before ever reaching the cooler.
never had any issues with not having that hole at the 6 o'clock position.Build looks great!! Awesome pics btw!! I am curious though since I haven't tackled mine just yet about the harmonic balancer. I noticed in all the pics it was in the same location and that that hole in between two of the bolts was never at 6 o'clock (prior to the nuts going on the studs). Did you not move the balancer? I have heard people not touching and having zero problems, I've heard of people not touching it and bending pushrods and I've heard to put the hole at 6 o'clock. Any info on that subject would be awesome but I don't wanna derail this thread. Again, excellent stuff IPR!!!
I'm not that far from you(springville-only about 30-40 miles south from you)...i've had my egr cooler deleted and egr valve removed for over 6 years and not at all worried.Great update and pics! It's good to hear and see of the other options out there! I don't think Ill ever have the kind of money to fully bulletproof my truck like I want it too. I love the idea of an EGR delete, but I am not sure if NY is going to start mandating emissions like the already do in NYC. Thanks again for the update :thumb:
