Re: Coolant Filtration

I went with the xdp (cheaper) both kits are stupidly simple to install and accomplish the same thing

Re: Coolant Filtration

read a few leaky sinister threads lately ( plugs/fittings and filter head problems )
I built my own but I would go xdp if I were to buy one since it's cheaper and I haven's seen any complaints

Re: Coolant Filtration

Been running Sinisters for about a year. Ball valves recently started leaking around the stem. Contacted the company and they sent me new ones, no questions asked. My issue is that the hoses are a little too long, but I worked with it. Steve at Absolute Performance sells a slick setup as well.

Re: Coolant Filtration

i am not a fan of the ball valves

extra cost and more fail points just to prevent fluid loss once a year or however often you change the filter I just open the radiator drain and take a couple gallons out in to a clean bucket

Re: Coolant Filtration

I've never even turned those ball valves. Never do when I change the filter. They were in the open position when I took them out if the box and have been ever since. Why they started leaking is beyond me.

Re: Coolant Filtration

They leak because the plastic seats for the ball is obviously not rated for high temperature coolant which is why when I saw all the issues everyone was having I swapped mine out with SwagLock valves. WAY overkill but absolutely zero chance on them leaking.
