Yes, very easy to do. I think mine came out better than the aftermarket kits.

Re: Coolant Filteration kit

I put a full flow filter in the line to my auxiliary heater so its far, far, away from the engine compartment.

Re: Coolant Filteration kit

I made my own and it turned out great. I put it down on the frame since my truck has the oil bypass under the hood. I got the wix head from amazon and 30 feet of 3/4 hose. Didn't need that much but it was just as cheep as getting a lot less from the auto parts store. Got shark bite brass fittings from home depot and the shut off valves. I had about 110 bucks into the whole thing and that included getting 4 baldwin filters off of amazon as well.

2004 Ford F350. 373 rear end. Amsoil, or Redline in everything except motor Rotella T-6. Egr delete, ARP studs, coolant bypass, oil bypass. Add Tcw3 to my fuel. 4 in turbo back, and AFE cold air. Sct x3 with PHP tunes and FICM Atlas 40 tune.
