So, normally it doesn't take much to convince me to spend money, especially since I don't have a wife or kids to rely on me thus making me think about what and how I spend it. I've been eyeing the BPD oil cooler kit but am really having a hard time convincing myself that the $2,200 for the kit (the cold weather one since I live in AK) is necessary.
If I have a filtered coolant system, an Amsoil bypass filter setup with a 2 micron filter, an EGR delete with a brand new oil cooler and updated stainless mesh screen, all of which is cheaper than the BPD kit, why would I need that?
I'm not implying by any means, that the BPD kit isn't "worth it", I'm just curious because their website shows this as their features:
*No more clogged engine oil coolers due to casting sand and debris in your coolant!
*Prevents the engine oil cooler from rupturing and filling your cooling system with engine oil.
*Bullet Proofs the High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP) filter screen preventing a possible HPOP failure.
*Maximizes coolant flow to the EGR cooler to prevent it from overheating.
*Allows engine oil to warm up to a minimum oil temperature of 180°F.
*Stops early injector failure due to overheated and poorly filtered oil.
*Stops early engine wear due to overheated and poorly filtered oil.
*Stops early turbo failure due to overheated and poorly filtered oil.
*Prevents coolant reservoir (degas) venting coolant due to flash boiling of the coolant in the EGR cooler.
*Halts EGR cooler rupture failure.
*Prevents immediate or delayed catastrophic loss of oil pressure due to a faulty oil filter housing drain valve.
*The best part? An engineered solution that allows you to fix your engine oil cooler right!
So, with all that info, I have most of it covered by the items I specified above . What's everyone's take on this? I'm not criticizing, I'm inquiring. help me out peeps!!!
