BPD external oil cooler install Q.
After I rebuilt my engine with studs, gogo stage 1, agressive tune, NEW OIL COOLER, etc, I cannot keep my EOTs in check when towing 18k hard. I threw the wrench light twice on my first hard tow for high EOTs and deltas, in first 100 miles of engine mods, and brand new oil cooler. Done with the BS. When you tow hard and heavy, the stock oil cooler does not cut it. Already ordered BPDs external oil cooler kit. Lucky me, get to tear her down, 300 miles after she just had stud job. anyway.....
For those of you who have done the BPD ext oil cooler kit, newer version, condenser mount, do you really have to break the seal on the AC? I read the instructions, looks like you have to tap into the AC condenser from the backside, but is there enough room to do that without breaking the seal on the AC system and entirely removing the condenser, or is that a must? If so, how do you go about getting the AC system back after that, is it just a recharge at an AC shop? or more complicated? Thanks.
Anybody who has done the install of the 05-07 BPD ext oiler kit, condenser mount, please chime in with how the install went.
