OIL TEMPS STILL HIGH

I just finished installing my IPR oil cooler setup. New cooler, and egr delete. the questin is, my oil temps are 15* to 20* higher than the coolant temp. Whats up with this? the oil temp stays around 200*. never higher than 205*. just finished the install today, also installed a IPR coolant filter in front of the cooler. Anyone else with this setup had the same problem?

Did you use an OEM style oil cooler or IPR's replacement oil cooler? I spoke directly to IPR and was told that the larger coolant holes move the coolant through the cooler so fast that heat exchange efficiency is reduced. Further, it was considered "normal" until the temps start going up.

If you have an OEM style cooler, it should actually run cooler EOT than ECT at temp. IPR posted a video pulling a trailer up the Grapevine and the oil was cooler than the coolant. Anyone who has driven the Grapevine knows that is a pretty aggressive 35 miles.

Sorry to hear it man. Sounds like you should have read the thread on which remote oil cooler first.

There is a huge debate over the ipr kit in the thread posted above.
But as I've stated before, I havnt had any problems out of mine. I'll say that untill something has been proven wrong with the kit.

Maybe you installed some lines backwards or have some other issue.

Oil temp 200-205? That puts water temp around 180-185*...doesn't everyone say water temp needs to be 190* to get an accurate reading?

Fordguy that depends on the region he lives in with ambient temps. Mine runs 192 in the summer all day but now with the cooler weather it runs 186-188 usually and depending on how hard I'm driving it maybe 192-194.

I don't think the IPR remote oil cooler is a bad idea, but I was not impressed with their high flow oil cooler.

sent from a dumb guy with a smart phone

He probably installed the basic kit. This is probably one of those cases I was concerned about in the PM I sent you...
