Performance Machine & MFG 6.0 Power Stroke Coolant Filter Kit
Performance Machine & MFG. is proud to introduce the First Coolant Filtration System to the Market that DOES NOT require any cutting or splicing to ANY of your OEM Heater Hoses.
With so many Coolant Filtration Systems on the Market with the same technology and design, Performance Machine & MFG decided that we would do something the competition hadn't thought of yet. With our system you do not have to do any modifications to your factory hoses, PERIOD! We supply you with a new radiator return line made of the same HIGH QUALITY Silicone Hose that is provided with the rest of our kit and it has the coolant filter line tied directly into it and is joined together using brass ferrules to eliminate the need for those ugly hose clamps. We also supply you with a short section of 3/4" Heater Hose so you don't have to modify your existing heater supply hose. Why does this matter you may ask? So, if the time ever came to remove our system, your hoses are unmodified and can be hooked back-up without any issue. Also, by using our system, you don't need any special tools to install our kit, just a 10MM Socket, Pliers, & a Flat Head Screw Driver. No need for hose cutters at all which also eliminates the possibility of a leak developing!

Key Features & Benefits:
One HUGE benefit of the installation of the 6.0L coolant filter is the protection of the EGR cooler and Engine Oil cooler. These coolers passes coolant over an exhaust flow to cool exhaust before it re-enters the intake. The cooler comonly gets filled full of debris, casting sand, coolant sediment Â fallout, etc. When they plug, you must replace them. The egr coolers list for $500.00, Oil Coolers for $325.00 and labor estimates are 8-10 hours to replace them.
Coolant filters are not a new idea to the diesel engine world. They come in most OEM applications for medium duty and OTR tractor trailer rigs. The idea was somehow tossed aside for light duty applications, most likely due to cost. For our light duty trucks it is a very important issue that needed to be addressed. Many diesel engines - like the Powerstroke - are cast with sand in the process. This sand is NOT completely removed from the system. In fact, much of this sand leaches out of the casting over time. The sand wears away at water pump seals, hoses and radiators. Removal of this sand can greatly increase your water pump life.
Recommendations on filter changes:
- First Filter Change: One Month After Installation
- Second Filter Change: Three Months Later
- Third Filter Change: Three Months Later
- After the third filter change, service the filter once a year or sooner.
