Rick I had a filter on on mine changed it every 2 weeks but it didn't stop the Evans from getting thicker on mine engine myself I don't think the Evans can handle the heat exchange of EGR cooler which is a temp of around 700 to 800 degrees. It got to the point that the engine was running 235 degrees on a hard pull which in turn was causing the oil temp to reach 245 degrees and according to oil mfg you'll start to shorten the life of the oil additive package at 247 degrees so between that and all the cracked heads, cracked egr coolers and 1 scored piston and liner I chose to go back to coolant that's proven itself.
