Thoughts on IPR??

Hey guys, so its pretty much time for the inevitable. I'm going to have to tear back into the ol' girl. Shes coming due for a change on the oil cooler. My truck has not had an egr delete yet so I got a couple questions. Right now I'm looking at the IPR Gen 2 Egr delete kit, with my 2004 should I go with the up-pipe or with the block off? Now on top of that they have the two kits one with the IPR Oil cooler and a OEM oil cooler. The new IPR one looks pretty legit, what are the thoughts on that?

Now on top of that to help her from clogging up again, I'm looking at putting one of IPRs High flow coolant filters. I am looking at doing the manifold, but i dont see what the point of the manifold is, maybe one of you could enlighten me.

I personally would suggest you run the ipr coolant filter and a oil cooler kit from bullet proof deisel, either their full kit or the new kit soon to be released.
I have had both oil cooler kits on my truck and the bpd kit gets the edge for sure.

I would love to get me one of the BDP oil coolers. but that is just WAY to much money for me to be spending right now.

And i'm not looking at a remote oil cooler. I'm looking at repalcing the oil cooler i have. Between a FORD OEM and the NEW IPR oil cooler.

If your going to spend the money on a IPR oil cooler kit than the new BPD kit is relatively close in price. Literally within a couple hundred of each other.

If you're talking about the IPR high flow oil cooler, run...run fast, run far. If cost is an issue, go with an OEM oil cooler to get you back on the road and save up for the BPD kit for the next time the oil cooler clogs/fails.

This was the information I was looking for! Thank you Fantom.

Now with the high flow coolant filter that they have with the manifold, whats the benifit of the manifold??
And with the IPR Gen 2 EGR delete on a 2004, new up pipe or their exhaust block off??
And will i be able to run the block off with the manifold of the coolant filter??

My biggest problem is that I have to get the wife on my side to spend the money... its hard enough getting the money for the IPR set up, let alone telling her i wanna spend another $700 to a grand on top of that.... she just may kill me

Here is the deal with IPR. Ken just sent me an email about their patents with BPD's kit(s). Apparently IPR's kit and PMM's potential kit are infringing on BPD's current patents for their kits. They have sent out cease and desist letters to both companies already as well.

What does this mean?

Basically it means that they are giving PMM and IPR the option to stop production and sales of their oil cooler kits on a voluntary basis. This means that they have the option of stopping this themselves and if they continue to sell their kits in leu of this information than they are opening themselves up to a lawsuit.

Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone and should it have to end up in court there is no guarantee that BPD would win the case, but if I were a betting man, my money would be on BPD.

BTW STAY AWAY FROM IPR'S HIGH FLOW OIL COOLER!!!!!!

This is just my $0.02 on the subject you can do what you want.

It's my understanding ipr hasn't made a high flow oil cooler in quite some time, and yes honestly I've never heard anything good about the high flow oil cooler.

Last time I talked to Vince (ipr) he was working on a gen II EGR delete for the 03-04 trucks, they were only available for 05-07.

And the coolant manifold won't work with the current gen II, but he said he was also working on one that would.

And the gen II or the coolant manifold won't work with a bpd oil cooler if you get one later.

Figure out your plans, but if i was you I would get the ipr high flow coolant filter and the regular gen I egr delete, that way you can keep/use both of those with the bpd oil cooler if you buy one later.
