Question deltas

I know this topic has been beat to death but havent really read anyone in my same situation !!! So I have a 6.0 deleted and new ford oil cooler and chemical flush ( before it was changed ) and deltas have never gotten more that 12 deg. apart but today its 82 deg and I went for a drive about 30 miles at 77 mph and 2200 rpms and coolant stayed about 190 but oil got up to 225 right before I got off the interstate! ! I am also running matts srl on her !! Called the guys that did my delete / cooler who do 10- 20 per week and they said what I was running was fine and as long as it didnt go 50 deg different it was ok !!!!! This seams bad to me from what I have learned on here !!! Is this ok !!!?????

Your oil cooler is clogged. You need to fix it now....

If you make it to 50* apart you'll be dropping $4-6k at that shop getting headgaskets, studs, and everything else replaced.

I wouldn't have anyone who tells me a 50* difference is EOT and ECT put air in my tires.

You're headed for trouble.

If a shop told me that it would be my warning as to NEVER let that guy touch my truck. He has no clue. Youve got a clogged/clogging cooler.

It has been only 7 difference for last week so maybe it was a fluke plus oil cooler just replaced 6 months ago by this shop !

I still stand by my first statement. Ok maybe not the clogged part u might just have a bad sensor (lets hope) but Id never let them touch my truck again.

Mine always runs 186 ECT and 206 EOT at 65-70mph. If I set the cc at 75-80mph they shift to 196 ECT and 215 EOT. No studs, factory oil cooler, ford factory flush last December. Planning on BPD system later this year, but I'm just watching it closely now.

So explain to me how a EGR deleted truck with a delta of 50 will cause his head gaskets to fail??? I'm throwing up the BS flag on that one.

I'm gonna say hold the boat here!! Before you get all worked up about it take another look at the deltas... Half an hour at 77 may not be giving you an accurate reading.

Truck warmed up (ECT 190), level ground at 65 until the temps stabilize. Then see what your delta is.

I don't know what happened to the delta afterwards but if they stayed way off I'd take a look at your temps first thing in the AM. Make sure they are within a degree or two, could be a sensor issue.

Having said that, I'd never go back to that shop either... I don't know what a stock cooler should do at 80* but 225* unloaded seems pretty high to me if your coolant stayed at 190*.

This was yesterday, hauling my mini excavator, about 10k. And yes I know, my oil cooler is clogged. And my head gaskets have been blown for about 8 months now.

I have a full build in the works, all the crap coming out anyways so I'm still running her. LOL

Bottom Left- EOT
Bottom Right - ECT

OP Id say your fine just run it. AHAHAHAHA!
