New to me 03 6.0 EOT high

Hi all I am James, I live in San Jose, CA. Last week I brought a F250 CC lariat 6.0 powerstroke. I looked over the truck, but did not get an OASIS report. I did not see any signs of any issues, no smoking (black or white) from the exhaust, no puking from the degas bottle, or from the oil filler. Starts and runs well, so I brought her for $17k with 81k miles on her.

Yesterday I installed a scangauge II that I got so i could monitor the functions, everything is looking good except the delta between the ECT and EOT. Once I was up to temp I took her on a quick 65mph run on the freeway, I was seeing a steady 186-190*f on the ECT, but on the EOT I maxed out at 228 only because I left the freeway. The EOT was rising constantly on the freeway so I don't think I hit the max temp for the EOT. The EOT did however cool down when I came off the freeway.

I already have the sinster coolant filter, but I have not fitted it yet. The truck is due to go back to the dealer to have a GuidePoint GPS tracking system fitted, in the next few weeks and I wanted to wait until that was done before I put the coolant filter on.

I am sure I need a new oil cooler, with an upgraded EGR cooler, I would also do some other upgrades. I am not into modifying engines and am happy to keep stock (except with better parts). I don't think the head gasket has gone yet as I am not seeing any signs of that.

Here are some questions

1) Using the scangauge, with the settings found on this site (Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.), on the scangauge setup I used the first MTH should I use the second, could I be getting a false reading?
2) With the ECT slightly below the normal range do I need to replace the thermostat, and will that have any effect on the EOT?
3) I was looking at Ford 6.0L Powerstroke Basic Solution With Upgraded Cooler and if that work is being done may as well do this as well 6.0 Powerstroke Update Kit 2003-2004. Can I get away with out do the head gaskets and putting the ARP studs in?
4) As I just got the truck I can get the parts but I really don't think I have the cash right now to pay a shop to do the work. I can do a small amount of work in my garage but I don't have a driveway or the tools to do the work. Are there any San Jose members who would be willing to help me with the work in exchange for some money and several cases of beer (of their choice)? If not are there any shops in San Jose that are a reasonable cost and know what they are doing?

Thanks all for the help and feedback

James

Even if your coolant is below 192F and your getting a oil temp reading of 228F your oil cooler is plugged and needs replaced immediately.

Only replace it at the minimum with another OEM oil cooler. Stay away from IPR's high flow oil cooler as well as their Oil cooler relocation kit. If your going to go the route of aftermarket ONLY get one of BulletProofDiesel's Oil Cooler Relocation Kit's. Also stay far away from Doorman oil coolers.

Ok thanks, is the one I linked to the OEM or the IPR oil cooler, I would prefer to stick to OEM where possible. I can not afford the BPD oil cooler relocation at the moment.

Just get the OEM oil cooler from SunriseFordParts.com They are a site sponsor here and have the best price on them. Also try not to buy "solution" kits they are over priced. You can piece together your own kit and save a good chunk of change..

I will do that. Is it still a good idea to get the EGR cooler from Sinister or BPD?

Thanks

Yes that is the one.

However, this is the same kit with a new cover (old international stock). I just bought one last week. If you look at the number on the cooler itself, you will notice it is the same number on the 6A642 kit.
