water separator

I installed a raptor 150 about 6 months ago when I first bought the truck because I thought the stock filter was a pretty decent setup well after multiple problems with multiple filters I finally bought the nicktane setup for the stock filter head. I now want to add a water separator into my setup. I found a universal w/s kit on glacier diesel for $122 that i want to run inline before my raptor. Anyone know of any better/cheaper setup I could run? I like the fact they use a filter u can get almost anywhere...

Not many people run a water seperator so Id think they migth be your only option. Sounds like a decent deal actually.

You can get a Cat Fuel W/S that mounts to nicktane inline filter kit. You could also just buy a filter base and make your own kits. It'd be nice to run Cat Fuel Filter in stock location and F WS inline on frame rail.

You might also consider selling the raptor and buying an ad2.
