Ect and eot temps after head studs and new oil cooler

I just recently got my truck back from getting arp studs and I have noticed that my ect and eot seem high. On average driving I see an eot of 192-196 and an ect anywhere from 188-198 most of the time the deltas are only about 3-4 degrees apart. I was just wondering if anyone else thought this seemed high?
My truck is a 2006 f350 regular cab 4x4. The mods are rcd egr delete, sinsister coolant filter, newer hpop, new oil cooler, arps, ford oem head gaskets, blue spring update, stc fitting update, 4inch diamond eye turbo back strait pipe, and sct livewire tuned by Matt at Gearheads

For around here that is a good delta. Depending on your ambient temps that 188* indicates a stuck open thermostat. You should never be below 190 deg. unless it is really cold out.

The 6.0 defuels when oil temps reach 253*, but if you're not towing or driving in stop and go traffic, I'd pay attention if oil temps went past 220*. Coolant temp should be around the same if the oil cooler is healthy.

PCM commands less than normal fuel injected, which makes less power, less power means less heat produced, less heat produced means cooler coolant and oil temperatures.

If the truck sees the temps getting to high, it will defuel, literally cut fuel back in order to reduce the stress on the engine and help it get back to cooler temps.
