If you have ever wondered if investing $3-600 in either a simple Nictane Kit or a full blown AirDogII or FASS
fuel filter system was worth it..these pictures may just sway you to do so. The reason I did so, was to delay or totally prevent having to replace the below two items at some point.
Injectors are likely $2500 per set of 8 + install-labour
Injector Pump (CP3) is likely 1500-2000 + install-labour.
Which would you prefer to do..??
I use a smaller Stanadyne System that uses a 5 mU filter in a POST OEM configuration. It is mounted in the engine bay.
I don't know what the filtering efficiency of the OEM filters are, but would suggest they do not do a very good job of stopping those particulates (5-12mU), that are the very evil little things that wear out the fuel system components.!
These have been in the truck until I hit 50% on my DIC. I am going to say that is only about 18-20,000km..! Needless to say, I am glad I have that little extra filter. I had recently bought a fiter head and large CAT filter from Toromont CAT here in Barrie but have yet to install...seeing these filters has put that mod to the front of the priority list. (I'm just torn between Doing the Nictane one + a lift pump or going full hog with an AirDogII)....DROOL big time..!!
