Angry PROBLEM PLEASE HELP

Well I got the insight CTS installed tonight and took the truck for a drive. I noticed a huge issue. Just driving like normal my EOT was anywhere from 9 to 26 degrees higher than my ECT. I understand that anything over a 15 degree difference is very bad correct?

I am looking now to have the truck worked on to fix this issue and preventive further problems. I am looking at doing coolant filtration kit, oil cooler, egr delete, ford factory head gaskets, arp studs and all the other gaskets I need. Is $1550 dollars shipped to my door a good price for all that stuff. I have a shop that is reputable in the area for doing head studs on the 6.0 but I have not got a labor quote yet. also is there any other parts I am going to need to have this work done correctly and is there anything else you guys would recommend having done while its already apart?

Oh ya I am going to have the heads checked and machined too so I dont have to pay for this again later.

Sounds like you have a good understanding of most the parts needed, I would suggest reading thisWrite Up: Bullet-Proofing the 6.0L PSD. carefully and fill in the missing items. without knowing the year of your truck it is a little harder to give advise. The other thing that I would suggest is a coolant system flush before you take it in for service, the last thing you want is to spend money to fix your truck and then have to do it again because of all the stuff in your coolant that caused the problem in the first place. Can anyone else think of anything I missed?

Make sure you check your delta after the truck is warmed up, not under load, and traveling down a flat stretch of highway between 55-65. Otherwise your reading is off.

The remote oil cooler is the absolute solution to the problem. For less money there is IPR's oem oil cooler relocation kit that makes it easier to change the oil cooler in the future. Other than that it is just the stock oil cooler. IPR's full flow coolant filter is the way to go there. Most effective coolant filter on the market.

I would love to do the remote oil cooler but it is 1000 dollars plus a 700 dollar core... that would push me to over 5 grand with the core and 4500 dollars after the core returned... that is not really in my budget i already cant really afford to spend the 3500 on everything else but it has to be done
