which route should i take?

Well even though i have studs, i lost my headgaskets, i think its an oil cooler issue, so ima do some stuf while im in there. I have a limited budget, so my question is should i go with an egr delete, and oil cooler relocate? or egr delete, new stock cooler, coolant filtration, and a airdog? and why one choice over the other

I dont have a stand alone gauge installed yet. However the guy I installed this with has the same truck I do and his edge says he is running in the 150-160 range here in NC and it has been cold. With the stock cooler installed he was only about a 10 deg difference between EOT and ECT now he is closer to 20-30. Gauges are my next addition to this truck. After watching the videos on bulletproofdiesel.com and reading about the possible destruction caused by the OEM cooler I was sold. I think it was the best choice I could make considering the options I had.

Did you have to remove your a/c lines to install the bumper mount?

egr delete, stock oil cooler rebuild, coolant filter, and the air dog is by far the best bang for your buck and it will solve, for the most part, most of your issues you could have. price the oil cooler relocate kit then see how many factory rebuilds you can get for that price. most oil cooler issues can be avoided, to an extent, by using good coolant and a coolant filter.

To each their own but to me replacing the stock oil cooler over and over is like puting a band-aid over a bullet wound. Especially if you are paying to have it done in a shop.
