We mentioned in our 6.0L coolant filtration thread that we would be tackling the 6.4L as well. Let’s take a look at some of the components our team has been putting together for the 6.4L kit. Although the 6.4L does not seem to be as susceptible to buildups as is the 6.0L, a coolant filtration setup is certainly still a worthy investment in preventive maintenance. So let’s get started! Filter Housing We’ll start with the filter housing. As mentioned in our 6.0L … Continue Reading ››
