Installing the oil and coolant filtration kit

Sinister Diesel 6.0L Power Stroke

February 2014 Installs

We installed the Oil and Coolant Filtration kit on a 2005 F250 with just over 110,000 miles on the clock. After just going through an expensive parts and labor bill to replace a failed engine oil cooler, we wanted to be sure this wasn’t a situation we’d find ourselves in again anytime soon. The team at Sinister went to great lengths to be sure their kit would fit right and make for a very simple install. With nothing more than basic hand tools we were able to install the complete kit in the garage in less than one hour.

On the cooling system side of things, the Sinister Coolant Filter kit will start by removing small solid particles from your cooling system to help keep the engine coolers, water pump and radiator clean. Sinister says that typically you can expect to change the spin-on filter three times within the first nine months of driving. These more frequent filter changes will remove most of the debris from the system and allow you to go to a once-a-year service interval, depending on mileage driven. During this installation process, we had also opted to install a Sinister billet fuel filter cap. Since our oil filtration system came equipped with billet oil filter and oil filler caps that would allow us to feed and return engine oil at the external 2 Micron AMSOIL filter, it only made sense to replace the factory plastic fuel filter cap with the matching billet piece from Sinister as well.
