• Systems come complete with compressor, air tank, fittings, pressure switch, relay, wiring, electrical parts, dash panel monitor, and mounting hardware. Detailed instructions help make installation successful

Pure 7.3 Coolant

Debris in the cooling system can collect in delicate radiator passages, causing overheating or worse. Protect your 7.3L Power Stroke's cooling system with Sinister Diesel's filtration kit.
• System filters a small amount of coolant with each pass, so sufficient coolant flow is maintained. Spin-on filter is easy to change, as needed. Once this system is installed, you'll generally use three filters in the first nine months as heavy amounts of debris are filtered out. Thereafter, the filter can be changed once a year
• Complete system includes everything for a clean, one-shot installation
