BPD ext oil cooler install custom mount

Installing the BPD ext oil cooler kit to try to get my EOTs down. Those of you that have read my threads know I run some high EOTs with big trailer, sometimes doubles, in the Vegas heat. Anyway, since I have the 08 front end, i have some free space up front. I talked to BPD tech, and they said it will cool better, but may have some effect on my AC not being as cool. Not a big deal to me cause most the big hills I have to roll the windows down and go full heat just to help not overheating, so even any AC will be better then our normal summer trips to UT! Anyway i build the custom mount today, welded up a sturdy bracket out of 1/4" x 1" mild. Should finish up tomorrow. What ya think?

Geat job JJ. That should do the trick. Do you have a manual fan over ride? If not it would be worth adding one I think. The Air to Oil cooling effective ness is direcctly proportional to the air moving across the heat exchanger.

I agree. You might also ask your custom tune writer to add some parameters so that your clutch engagement occurs based on a lower EOT temp. Right now I don't think ANY tuner modifies the factory setting, which is 230* EOT.

Yes that does look GREAT!! Let us know how it works. So far I have not seen any AC performance problems. I know you dont care about that as much as you care about your oil temps. I would be very surprised if this doesnt fix it for you. Did/are you installing an oil thermostat?

good advice, Jodi at DP tuner said he could adjust it for me, i want to see how it runs with this setup first. Will get her done this weekend. With my FS2500 and this Ext oil cooler, my truck now takes like 23+ quarts of oil, so maybe that help too. I think Jodi looked up in code and said it was 230 ECT not EOT makes the fan come on, cannot remember, but that is definitely the next step in this process. We have to move (military) in July, So ill be pulling 20K plus again, coast to coast, in the peak of summer. Lucky me, wish I could handle driving slow, that would probably help! lol

I talked to the guys at BP a few years ago when they first came out and asked a few questions. I was still leery as to whether or not their cooler would be able to cool enough. I also told them that I was worried about taking too long for oil to get to operating temps in colder climates(this was before they came out with a thermostat). Anyways we had talked about making a bracket so I could run two of their radiators. I also thought about running a larger single cooler like a 6.0 tranny cooler modified to accept the larger hoses. I never did any of this as I am still running stock cooler and dealing with the temps. I am just thinking out loud and giving some ideas. I hope all works out for you and I would like to know if your temps drop. Another thing I was considering was an electric fan that could be turned on by a thermostat.
