GOGO Diesel Intake, Delta was 9 now 20, Problem?

Had a gogo diesel intake laying around so I decided to throw it on a truck to delete the egr and cooler. This truck had a 9 degree delta before the swap but is now running a 20 degree delta. Would be on track with what others have experienced with this intake or is this going to be a problem? THanks

How and where did you route the coolant coming out of the oil cooler?

the hose coming off the return is to small and restrictive. there are options out there I just used the factory return and plumbed it into my heater core line. dropped my delta at least in half. I would like to do the absolute delta kit because it can be routed better then.

I'd first need to see pics of how you have your mine routed to confirm, but I have a coolant re-route kit that I can send you for $45 shipped. It comes right out of the oil cooler via a 5/8 hose that then T's into the 3/4in heater core hose via a special 5/8 to 3/4 T fitting. The hose in the kit is good for 350F coolant too. Let me know if you think it will help. I'm running it on my truck right now and my deltas fluctuate between 0 and 2 degrees on a 90F day with a fresh oil cooler.

Post up some pics man so we can help you out here.

^ agreed, save yourself some money and do not buy the absolute kit... you can make your own kit or buy nate's for 45 bucks. heater hose, clamps, maybe a little bit of heat wrap(I used this around my heater hose for added safety) and a barbed tee and you are in fat city.

The thing that most guys don't understand is that the hose coming from the oil cooler is a 5/8in hose and the heater core hose is 3/4in. So a 3/4 hose fits WAY loose on the oil cooler out let fitting and a 5/8 hose is really hard to fit onto a 3/4in barb. This is why we have the right T for the job. Yes the kit is simple, but it is also thorough. It includes a freeze plug, 4 hose clamps, 2.5 ft of heater hose that is USA made, 3/4x5/8x3/4 T fitting, and 3/8x3/8x3/8 barbed T.
