Did it backwards.

Let me just say im new to diesels but researched the 6.0 before I bought it and still messed up lol. So I bought my 03 F350 with 120k miles on the clock about 3 and a half weeks ago. The first thing I did was get the oil changed and add a 5" Mbrp no cat turbo back straight pipe exhaust. Friday I got a Egr Delete with a tuned down tune. Today I ordered a Edge Insight CTS with the upgrade to monitor the egt. I know I did it backwards but I should be fine after those are installed. I'm saving for head studs and oil cooler now. The only power I've had was my coolant was overfilled in the first place and I have got some puking if I run it hard. Any feedback other then I'm stupid is much appreciated.

I wouldn't say you're stupid, you pretty much did what I did to mine. As long as the EOT/ECT temps are happy, your oil cooler is good, don't sweat it. I've had one form or another of programmer on mine since 06, no issues. Personally, I'm not studding mine UNTIL it pushes a gasket. Just don't go pounding the loud pedal below 190*.

Barfing coolant isn't uncommon, just don't go to "FULL" on the degas bottle, coolant tank, whatever.

I'd go ahead and slap a coolant filter on it.

I just spent my day installing a Sinister coolant filter, should have mentioned that, too!

How about an oil bypass filter? Im divided between that or tunes because of a 10 degree delta night I had this weekend. Can a bypass save an oil cooler?

Nope. Filtering your oil won't bring down the temps.

try a good flush first and see if that helps. now i might warn you in some occations this has led to it getting worse and not better but that was because there was just a ton of built up crap! do a search on here for coolant flushes and it should come up with all the stuff you need and how to do it! also you didnt do things backwards if you ask me. doing things backwards to me would mean buying it with an egr delete and putting an egr cooler on it and then adding a banks 6 gun haha! your doing the best thing for your truck that you can right now! most people just buy it and run it hard and dont give .02 about it until it blows up. your on the right path just keep it up and before you know it you will be giving info on here to the new diesel owners yourself!

What do you mean by "night"???

is that the only time you saw it like that?

Are you checking your temp deltas when the engine is warmed up fully driving 65 mph on a Flat highway?

Also the coolant temp has to be 190* for the delta to be read correctly...

Any of these parameters are not correct your delta WILL change ie: city driving, going faster, towing, going up a slight incline!

An oil by-pass only cleans the oil, the stock filter cleans the oil to 20 microns and the by-pass cleans to 2 microns plus removes the soot from the oil a good move if you plan on keeping the truck just remember you still need to change the oil at 5-7000 miles because of the shear of the oil by the injectors. Now a coolant filter removes the casting sand that helps plug the oil cooler this should be in place 5-7000 miles before a coolant flush to remove the silicate in the system that will turn into a goo from the Restore and Restore+ or Fords uses VC-9 at 2x the cost.
What are your deltas now ECT-EOT running 60 on the freeway after 2-3 minutes 10* or more your oil cooler is getting plugged 15* is the max set by Ford.
