Very high delta

I just purchased a 2004 f250 king ranch with the 6.0.

I have bought and installed a 5" turbo back exhaust and just hooked up a cts insight that I just had come. My delta and eot is scary! At 100-110 km/hr I am seeing a delta as high as 41 degrees and my eot reached 231 at one point. Long story short this needs to be fixed asap!

My conputer crashed a week ago so it is very hard for me research what to do. I have my fathers truck lined up to drive untill I get mine done as soon as get back home but I need to fix it asap. Need assistance.

I will need to do a coolant flush and add a coolant filter? But will this possibly take care of the high deltas or should I order a oil cooler and egr delete now as well? I was thinking a sinister coolant filter kit and cat elc coolant. If I order the oil cooler and egr delete now I was going to get it through rudys. I will adventually stud the truck but hoping to hold off for a little while.

Please let me know what you suggest as I will need to get everything ordered asap as it will take a good 2 weeks for me to recieve here in Newfoundland Canada.

Thanks everyone!

I doubt a flush would do anything at this point


You can't get an oil cooler kit locally from Ford or International ?

I could possibly get one locally but I am willing to bet it would be priced double than for me to order online. I want to get an egr delete and do at the same time anyway so I will have to order that anyway.

Is price a large concern for you, or are you more concerned with doing it right once? there are aftermarket kits though they are not cheap, they are a once and done.

Price isnt a huge concern, I would like to build a reliable truck but I have to build it in stages. I dont have a whole lot of cash to spend right off the bat.

I have been looking at going with the fully bullet proof kit from bp and deleting the egr cooler. I will be running the cat elc coolant but will I need a coolant filter with the fully bullet proof kit?

What other nick nacks should I look into. I read that I wont need tto do the fitting but what about the fuel pressure spring I read about or anything else? I wish I was on computer so I could actually do proper research on this!

Thanks everyone
