Smile Anyone using Bulletproof Diesel's kit?

I am very close to purchasing and installing BPD egr cooler and oil cooler with cold weather package along with HG, ARP, etc, etc, etc. I would like to hear from current users who have the complete bulletproof diesel kit on their truck, and how they like it, and how the install went. Thank you.

Lots of people using them and I would say all of them are happy. I dont have those specific kits, but I have oil bypass kit and it is top notch quality.

Check this thread out on installation

Hi Todd,
As Grayson says, I don't know of any folks who have it that aren't absolutely thrilled with it. The fit, finish and quality of parts is second to none. Quite a few folks have installed the fully Bulletproof kit in their garage or like Nick did in his driveway (in the link above).

Hi Todd,
There are several folks who have installed it themselves. The link above is from Nicholas documenting his install.

I love mine. Installed myself in the driveway. Did it with their EGR delete as well. My Oil temp is either below the coolant or same as. Advise: keep rags away from the HPO resevoir, upgrade your IPR screen while its easy to get to the IPR, Ive seen bulletproof now carrys the upgraded IPR screen kit. My next move is to add their bypass filter kit.

Like others have said...

If you have the dough to fork over for the bulletproof kit, GO FOR IT...



I don't have that kind of money
plus i would rather spend it for injectors and turbo if I DID have it anyways...

HAHAHA thats good.

Yeah, another bulletproof addict here. The 550 does plowing duty in the winter. 26 hour shift and the oil temp was 190. AND my 9' fisher MC completely blocks the front end of the truck when its up. So 190 was the oil being warmer than usual.

full bulletproof with oil bypass filter. PMM coolant filter. Arp studs, OEM gaskets, all ford updates.

I had planned to address as many of the problem areas as possible during this retrofit, including the ipr screen. Man, I cant believe the price of the ipr screen. Somebody is making a killing on that thing. Thanks for your input everyone.
