oil cooler question

Hey all, just want some sound advise on a game plan here. I just got my scangauge2 today and installit and took a drive to get some readings. First off my current ambient temp is roughly 35-40*F, anyway my coolant temp was in the 180-185 range while cruising, and EOT was 188-193*F. I thought I was good until I ran WOT uphill and my ECT jumped to 195, EOT 212! Although i got this high number whil coming up a significant grade, I still fear the inevitable, OIL COOLER TIME . Anywho, my question is, since Im on a somewhat tight budget, I will be replacing the stock oil cooler with a new Ford unit or the like. I would like to do a EGR delete or upgrade "while Im in there". So, could I get a few suggestions on what company has a solid EGR delete system? I was looking into the Sinister and XDP kits but I want a good setup, because I dont want to do this again!

Thanks everyone!

Look at Performance Machine kits. Great kits. IMHO Sinister stuff is wag overpriced. Here's a link.

I think you are getting ahead of yourself. First if your normal cruising ECT is 180-185 it would indicate that your thermostat is bad. Replace it and re-test. Second once you have a good thermostat in get the truck fully up to operational temp (190-192 ECT) and cruise it at 70-75mph for 10 minutes and see what your EOT and delta gets to.

Charging up a serious incline wide open throttle is no a good test.

Got questions about your 6.0?

I thought the delta test was suppose to be done on flat ground at 55mph not 70-75? but i could be completely wrong and mainly saying this so that i know better and so i know how to check from now on

You're getting all cranked up a little to soon. Everything looks normal to me. Just keep an eye on things and drive your truck.

Ok, thanks for the input guys, I do tend to expect the worst a little too soon! I had figured the low coolant temps were due to the inclimate weather here right now, but after doing the coolant flush procedure and intalling a dieselsite coolant filter today, checking my deltas, my temps were a consistent 5-10*F apart at 65mph with little load on the engine. Again coolant temps were low (178-185*f), so Ill get the t-stat ordered tomorrow.

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction on this, I sometimes get carried away.

A better test is to run it at 70-75. This is not exactly the Ford procedure but it works well enough. Ford's procedure involves WOT runs.

Got questions about your 6.0?
