Oil cooler and egr cooler question

I have a stock 06 ford f250 with a 6.0. I was woundering if the bullet proof oil cooler setup and the bullet proof egr cooler setup in there trucks. I don't plan on doing many mods to my truck I have a turbo stack kit order 5 inch from turbo to stack exhaust kit. I am going to put the blue spring in the regulated but that is it I don't want to worry about blowing up my truck because the oil cooler pluged up. Let me know the best way and things to do to get the most out of my truck I miss the 7.3 fore sure

If you do low speed towing I've read that guys do not get enough cooling with the Bullet Proof oil cooler.

For folks who run factory tuning, this might be a problem although I have never experienced it and I pull in some pretty severe desert heat. For folks who have SCT custom tuning, they can have their tuner add fan engagement based on oil temperature.

I sometimes drive my brother-inlaw's seismic truck pulling 14,000 out on roads that deer would have trouble walking on and we have to CRAWL up steep grades. He has an electric fan on a trans oil remote cooler and a remote water/engine oil cooler and have never had overheating issues. Which is why I'm eventually going to do the same thing to my truck.
