the down time and labor for people that dont work on their own trucks or have the time.. I think for that price its a great investment... save the water jackets from getting plugged. Nice and clean kit by the looks. :Thumbup:

Not just the water pump. Your EGR cooler and oil cooler both use coolant to operate. How much do those cost to replace when they plug?????

There's a pretty interesting thread on the TDS about a coolant filter perhaps reducing and/or eliminating EGR cooler problems due to removing the coolant sand/debris before it plugs up the EGR cooler.

Makes me glad I put a $120 coolant filter on my 6.0 at 40 miles old.

For those that don't think a coolant filter is needed

Here are some pics of the coolant filter I just changed out on my dads truck. When I did the ARP studs and gaskets 5,000 miles ago I added a coolant filter from Dfuser and I drained and replaced all the coolant and all this junk still managed to be in there. Just wish I would have put a filter on 100,000 miles ago. So I would recommened that everyone get a coolant filter, cuz I dont think its good for all that junk going through you coolant system and EGR cooler.

That's pretty nasty. I have been thinking about doing this for some time now, maybe it's time to just get it done.
