    State Farm did not allow me to take anything off of my old truck very painful my Revmax 700 only had 9000 miles on it, still under warranty.

    Not to mention all of the other things I have put into this truck.

    Coolant and oil bypass so far.

    Oil bypass was a kit from my 2017, just a slight mod to the bracket.

    Coolant bypass requires a slight mod to its bracket to clear the S&B CAI.

    Otherwise, it caused a rattle.

    i forgot to capture the slight mod to the bracket on camera, and it just amounted to cutting about 1/4” off a corner.

    This is a modification I have thought about adding since day one.
    I know the PIC doesn't do all the angles any justice, but changing that filter looks like a real buggar!

    Also, how many miles between services are you figuring?

    The Clean Install of both filtering systems looks fantastic!
    I'm all about - Easy / Mess Free / Decently Fast ---> Filter Changes!

    Any experiences as of today of the difficulty of filter changes?
    Note: I've seen a couple of coolant filter kits installed below on the outside of the frame rail.
    I guess that spot always has the chance of getting taken out by any road debris

    I have had the CAI out several times since installation, and by itself, I think the filter change would be a headache.

    I think it’s just as easy to loosen the clamp off the turbo boot and remove the whole box, plus it gives me a look at the turbo as well, and interestingly, no oil in the turbo this gone around since I installed the oil bypass filtration so I’ll keep an eye on that.

    I repositioned the orientation of the tube to make more clearance for the coolant filter changes.

    Had I not already had the oil bypass kit from 2017, I probably would have used a Frantz kit mounted down on the frame rail behind the radiator area.

    Their install video makes that area look slick for changes, and being up top, my setup forces me to be careful of spillage.

    I always use a filter plug when doing oil changes with minimal cleanup.

    I plan on going to oil analysis to determine change intervals on actual oil changes.

    I’m new to the analysis method, so I am looking for the best recommendation for labs.

    As far as the air filter, it is a dry type cleanable with a sock; since I see it with every hood opening, it will be a visual/clean as needed.

    I am under/around this truck alot(probably working on it more than driving-getting great mileage this way) and always looking for issues before they arise.

    Another good mod is the cowl filter that Geno’s sells, which keeps debris out of that area.

    Next on the to-do list is the rear cat fuel filter conversion/add-on.

    In a month or so when I do the fuel filters unless I’m thrown a curveball.

    In conclusion, I feel much more comfortable stretching out maintenance intervals with extra filtration.

    for the excellent reply, CrazyTrain!

    I will probably wait until the deletion and removal of all the excess weight up top in the engine bay before installing the coolant filter system and oil by-pass kit.

    I installed a coolant by-pass filter kit on my 01 Ford 7.3L PSD @ 25K miles & was amazed at all the crap the filter trapped (Cut the first 4 Baldwin filters open); each filter showed less and less contamination. (Basically, what looked like sand & some scale).

    I switched to Final Charge Global ELC @ that 25K mile mark.

    As for UOA labs, I like the convenience of Blackstone but have been shown to make a Ton of Simple Mistakes on Samples Polaris or Amsoil might be my next choice over the past few years.

    I think I will do both and see what, if any, differences, and hopefully not open a can of worms.
