finally biting the "bullet"
Finally stepping up to a bulletproof diesel oil cooler. I knew it was coming but kept trying to convince myself that i wasnt. I have done 2 oil cooler rebuilds and ford supposedly did another under warranty when the egr cooler crapped out. Every time i did them i followed the flush procedures with restore and restore plus with tons of fresh distilled water. This is all within 3 yrs. The other day while driving to florida, 300 miles each way, i saw deltas of 12-14 on the way there and up to 18 on the way home. Instead of doing a standard rebuild again i opted for the BPD kit, once and done hopefully. Ive heard nothing but great things about them so im excited to see how it works. I didnt get the cold weather kit. Being in south louisiana we stay pretty warm and drop below 40 a few days a year.
Also going in is: stc fitting, ipr screen, stand pipes, dummy plugs, cc vent, metal cac tube and cleaning turbo. Already there is cat elc, coolant filter, egr delete with up pipe, blue spring and rotella t-6. Anything else i should be doing?
Guys who have done this, any tips or advice on the cooler install? Looks straight forward but tips always help.
Will keep thread updated with parts pictures and install.
