Do you already have the kit? I would still install. Do you see all that crud they pull out of those filters?

No, an aftermarket coolant filter isn't needed.

Basically, the choice is yours:

- Continue to use the OEM coolant filter as-is and, once it plugs, get it replaced for around $2400 +/-. This price assumes, of course, that the OEM coolant filter getting plugged doesn't take out the heads or wrist pins etc.

- Install an aftermarket coolant filter for about $120-$140 and then replace the aftermarket coolant filter at about $10 each time (500 miles, 1000 miles, then one year or so thereafter).

Your choice. Choose wisely.

Good luck.
