Oil cooler recommendations

I am getting ready to put head studs in my 05 6.0 within the next 5k or so. I already have my studs and gaskets, I would like everyone's recommendation on which oil cooler to use? I'm thinking of the bulletproof one. Is there any others out there that people have had good success with? I don't want to have this thing apart again so I won't to do it right the first time. Thanks!

The bulletproof one is the only real option that works. Wish I would have went that rout. My factory replacement clogged within a couple thousand miles.

Ford oem with elc coolant. Run a filter on the coolant and flush out the system before you do it. The bullet proof one is the best, I just couldn't see spending that kind of money when you could get alot of other goodies.

I went BPD and am very happy. The $$$ hurt but its quality and design gives me peace of mind. I also did a flush and went to rotella ELC and a XPD coolant filter. Good luck

Thanks everyone I guess I'll go with the bulletproof. I'm going to do that studs and egr delete the truck only has 127k and one cooler replacement at 80k I guess I've been lucky. Any other suggestions to replace while I got it down to the heads for longevity? I'm not looking for a hot rod just don't want to touch the engine again besides for little things. It already has the blue fuel spring and a new turbo at 110k so I'm pretty sure I'm good with the other issues unless anyone has any other thoughts

Will do. What is everyone's opinion on the cold weather option in the bulletproof kit. Is it really needed? The truck will be driven in north florida. So the coldest it will ever see is low 20s. I usually let my truck run for 10-15 min in the mornings while I get ready anyways so I don't really see a need for the thermostat. What is everyone else's opinion?

The usual guidance is that unless you routinely see snow plows in the winter time where you drive that you do not need the cold weather kit.

I would recommend getting the heavy duty cooler from BPD. In hot places the more oil cooling the better. I have the Tall version.
