1. I have experience with just 1 type of egr cooler delete, and being that where im at has no emission checks to look for the cooler, id say its best type because it keeps heat away. Its a little hockey puck that goes into the up pipe, a tube to run coolant from oil cooler to intake man. And a plate to block off egr cooler inlet on intake. Ive seen no name generic kits for $75 on ebay, but I would recommend a trusted brand. There are others with a fake pipe to connect everything, and some people weld a cap on their existing egr cooler. IMHO those are bringing heat to the intake and whole underhood area. All will do the same two things: keep coolant flowing, and block exhaust gasses. The BPD cooler is great, but people notice faster spool up with a delete, plus theres less heat going to your coolant with a delete.
2. Never personnally had it happen, but ive heard of it, the newer ford strategies are designed to go into limp mode after the eot gets too high. On mine I would get a wrench light but no limp mode, so it is likely a different issue if you didnt get a light at all.
A 30 degree delta is really high. Any driving from now on youre playing russian roulette (honestly, you have been for a while). You need to delete the cooler asap.
3. If youre only hitting 190 ect your tstats stuck open, its like $25 for a new one. Keep the old one, you can pull the tsttat out of the neck housing and use just the housing for flushing (see num 4)
4. If youre still running ford gold coolant, do the flushing before you take it all apart, or youre going to flush the gunk into your new oil cooler. Switch to CAT EC-1 rated coolant. Theres several brands that carry this rating.
Nows the perfect time to do turbo feed and drain line update and depending on year the STC fitting. youll be right there for all of that. The STC fitting WILL leave you stranded and can cause severe damage sometimes.
