Scan gauge2 first readings

So i got the scan gauge2 hooked up and went for a hour so drive.
The first 30 miles i got.
198F for EOT
179F for ECT
and the next 30 plus miles
199F for EOT
177F for ECT
151F for TFT.
I was told i should do a Oil cooler, while i install the EGR delete kit.
What do you guys think. Thanks

From what I've gathered reading about the 6.0s, your ECT should be a decent amount higher. I'd try a thermostat first.

Can you say it's a bad oil cooler if the ECT isn't at the correct temp to get a good delta?

I would still say yes because it is the coolant temp that drives oil temp. The heat removal capability of coolant is SO much higher than air that yes if your coolant is at a lower than "normal" temp, then so should your oil IMO.

Well I just did a 800 mile road trip last night and OAT was between 36 and 40*F the whole way and my ECT was between 188 and 190F and my oil temp was between 200 and 208*F but my temp delta doesnt count because I have an oil cooler delete and higher than normal oil thermostat installed.

If his t-stat was bad he wouldn't even be getting that high of an ECT reading. He might just be among the few of us that has a cooler running truck. Although it does sound like you need to replace your oil cooler.
