Any "REAL" IPR OIL COOLER USERS (not Bashers Please)

Anybody REALLY have one that can give REAL WORLD report on this system.

I see a ton of threads where everyone jumps on the band wagon but have yet to hear from a real world user....

Yes Ive seen the 9 videos of the install and the finished product...

Anyone else ????

If you really want to stay with using the OEM oil cooler then the IPR setup is the only major one out there. It's a fairly complicated, convoluted setup and has its pluses and negatives. There's a lot of VERY knowledgeable guys out there that have looked AND asked for detailed info about the IPR and the BPD setups. You don't see ANYONE bashing BPD's setup.

Thats is correct have not seen people bashing BPD cooler.

but the band wagon jumpers really send an off balance message.

I guess my point was to hear from a real world user.

I live in New england, and will not be towing, this info is for my soon to be, new to me Excursion. (pick it up next week)

I do appreciate the feed back, just doing the research

I've found that the more complicated a system is the more the odds are something will screw up. If you get the IPR system your going to need to watch your temperatures like a hawk.

Why use an oil cooler you got to watch?? I run the OEM one with excellent ECT/EOT numbers. I use the ELC coolant and a filter. Works for me.

Does the x have issues??? If not dont bother IPR setup and if it is dont bother with the IPR setup .... With BPDs new remote filter setup there is no need to support a product/company that would rather argue about why a question was asked vs answering it. Just my opinion. There is still tons of lingering questions about the IPR setup and my guess is there is a reason why info from people who actually bought it is limited.

Im not going to tell you not to buy an ipr kit.....just do your research. Ive said this on the forums and even to vince (owner of ipr) ive had both the ipr kit and bpd kit on my personal truck, while I never had any actual problems out of the ipr kit, the bpd kit IS a better solution for a few reasons.

I think the ipr price has gone down some, like $1300? But then you have to buy the high flow coolant filter ( the filter is a great product no matter what oil cooler youre running) to take advantage of the ipr design for $250, and a coolant manifold for another $80.

so yove got $1630 in a ipr kit, and bpd new oem filter kit is $1800 with the cold weather kit. Its realy a no brainer

I run the kit on my truck...Since i've put it on i've never had any issues at all. If there were questions, i've called vince an heck even text em later in the evening and he's always took the time to call back or texted. with that said...i've never had issues with the system...temps have rose a couple of times...cleaned the filter and they went right back to where there supposed to. i really dont tow, just the occasional car trailer...performs just like it should. Maybe that'll help...

Not to be rude here but the title says no bashers but you haven't really indicated what it is you're looking for???
