Aftermarket oil cooler recommendations

If one were to go and get an egr delete kit installed, would it be wise to do an oil cooler while the mechanic had everything apart? I see on the auctions, Dorman seems to come up a lot, are they any good? Thanks

Anytime you do either an egr delete or egr cooler replacement Or tearing down for head gaskets it is a good idea to replace the OEM oil cooler. That said only replace the OEM oil cooler with another OEM oil cooler or a BPD kit. DO NOT USE AFTERMARKET OIL COOLERS THEY ARE JUNK!!!

OK, thanks, so I take it a Dorman or $309 sinister brand cooler wouldn't be in your truck Tuscany? Thanks for the input.

No I have a clogged OEM oil cooler in there now . I have a brand new full BPD kit sitting in the box in my room waiting for warmer weather to put it on and have their new beta kit that I'm going to be installing on a good friend of mines truck. As I said only go with OEM if you can't afford to do the BPD kit. Don't waste your time or money on other after market OEM style oil coolers or other after market remote oil cooler kits. BPD or OEM is all you will see me recommend.

Backing that up. If you're going to buy an OEM style (liquid to liquid) oil cooler, I wouldn't recommend a Dorman. Or really anyone else really.

After a lot of reading about oil coolers and the 6.0L I'm convinced that there is only one choice for an oil cooler. BulletProofDiesel. If that won't fit your budget then an OEM will do until you are wiser and/or your budget is bigger.

Yeah, the BPD one will have to wait, that kind of money can be spent in better ways for my truck. Its just too much for this guy, however if it was for my Harley, that would be a drop in the bucket haha.

Not sure this is true, there is a thread out that is not good on the sinister oil cooler. Bolts pulled through. Stick with oem if you go that route. Unbeatable prices on ebay.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.
