Coolant filter???

Getting ready to put ARP studs in my dads 6.0 and I was thinking about installing a coolant filter at the same time. Is it worth it? The water coming out is pretty rusty looking. Dfuser has one for $160 shipped. Sound good??? Coolant Filter

Thanks

Robert

I was thinking of the same thing after looking in my overflow resevoir and seeing a bunch of sediment in there.

I'm not a FORD guy CHEVY in the past, currently CUMMINS (not DODGE) but my knowledge of a coolant filter is that there is a chemical that gradually dissolves into the coolant and helps maintain the proper chemical composition of the coolant. This is for use on transportation busses using converted diesel to natural gas. It may not apply to your trucks. I will say that we regularly drain coolant to perform various maintenance ( only when needed of course ) and the coolant that comes out looks good. If the "filter" rattles when shaken I would put my money on what I have said. Why they call it a filter I do not know. It actually does no filtering of the coolant. As far as I can figure with the right chemistry corrosion is inhibited. Heat and flow have an interesting affect on fluids. I mean look at electrolysis. Flowing water develops and electrical charge and becomes corrosive. Hope this helps you guys out. Ivan

The coolant filter will help the long term life of the engine. It's cheap insurance. Try saving a few bucks on the kit with the link below.
