Due to time and money issues I went back with the ford poslastic screen I had a section blown out in mine as well. Don't know if you looked into it or not but I did an EGR delete. I have been very pleased with it. I also went a little further and added an EDGE programer/gauge setup so I could monitor my eot/ect just so I could catch it in time if I had the oil cooler plugging up again. In the process of making a coolant filter system. I would definitely recommend one and flushing the crap out of the system. I couldn't believe the amount of muck that I got out of my system even after 9 times of flushing it.
