CAT filter question.....

I've read several threads on the CAT filter adapter mod, but haven't been able to find any info on the effects of not having a water separator. Does anyone worry about water going through the CP3 or injectors? Does it hurt anything? I am just looking for some opinions before I do the mod.

I ran it and didn't worry one bit. Iirc the cat filter just collects the water in the bottom of it? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

If you're worried then use the Donaldson 3 micron with separator. I don't have the part number right now but I recently ordered 2 with the sight bowl and will be replacing the cat filter next time around.

What is the price of the Donaldson compared to the stock filter?
