great thread....I have been thinking about doing this same mod to my truck. BPD is selling a bypass and cooler for $1900 and it basically does the same thing as your setup. Im going to pick up a cooler and do the same thing. How has your setup been working for you?
It doesn't do the same thing. He's only adding another oil cooler as an auxiliary unit. The 6.0 can require up to 18gpm of flow, this bypass set up is just that, a bypass which means only about 10% of the oil is being filtered and cooled. It's not ment to replace the oil cooler but just to help cool the oil.
I see no real benefit to adding the extra oil cooler, if your delta is out then it's time to replace the oil cooler with the OEM or the expensive aftermarket remote set-up. If your stock oil cooler is working properly there is no need for the auxiliary add on.
