6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

Well I thought I'd done enough homework before I purchased a Sinister Coolant Filter Kit and I've discovered that it doesn't come close to fitting in the location show in the instructions. Even if I try and modify the bracket, there's little clearance for the canister to prevent rubbing on the AC line. It would also require cutting into the power supply box cover and that won't happen. I'm looking for opinions on what others have done in this situation. What "brand" is everyone using? I have a 2006 E350 6.0L with rear AC. A bit perplexed at the moment because everything I've located seems to be for the F Series. Thanks.

Barry

Re: 6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

I installed one made by Dieselsite which has an E-series option. Mine is mounted along the frame rail in front of the starter batteries. http://www.dieselsite.com/2003-200760lc ... rpump.aspx

This one made by Innovative Performance Research is highly regarded on the diesel forums. Not sure how it fits the van. http://www.iprresearch.com/product.php? ... =59&page=1

Re: 6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

I'm having one installed right now along with some other work. Things are still apart but I plan on visiting the shop on Tuesday and I'll see what I can find out. I do not have rear AC though. On the invoice it is listed as 6.4 coolant filtration system (SINSMC) so I assume it is a Sinister.

The folks at Sinister are coming up with a plan. I'll be able to post the results in a few days. Thanks for the response.

Re: 6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

There really isn't room in the engine compartment for the filter. Here is how I did mine:

Re: 6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

Well the fix is in...Sinister sent me the setup for a 6.4L at no cost to exchange. For my van with all the "stuff" that seems to be attached to the inside of the frame, I ended up mounting near the fuel tank in a protected area on the outside frame. With the rear heater line, I was able to tap that at the back of the engine in the doghouse area. Still, I was short about 5' of hose. Tapping at the usual spot would have been closer to 10'. Thanks for all the help. I would post photos but they are too large. I'm happy to email them to anyone attempting this project.

Re: 6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

Why is it so many coolant filter says they can't be CARB compliant? Is there a CARB compliant version? Stupid state is saying anything that is add-on and not stamped CARB COMPLIANT is illegal. Not that they are enforcing it (yet) but how can something that doesn't affect emissions be illegal? So duel oil filters will be illegal next?

Any ideas on this one. Seems simple to install. Any pros/cons

Re: 6.0L Coolant Filter Setup Opinions...

I have a 6.0l sinister coolant filter and had to do some troubleshooting with the mounting. I mounted it near the frame under the van and have a custom box made for it that's easy to access for filter changes. Very pleased with how it came out, but the Sinister filter, like others out there, was certainly designed for the truck models.
