Higher ECT temps after mods
This is my first post on this forum. I've been on a few others for a long time, have used this one for research and decided it was time to join. I listed my truck in my sig. I've owned it since new. In December I did the following mods.
KEM ficm tune
Wicked Wheel 2 for Powermax (ran Powermax one year prior)
BPD remote oil cooler w/ cold package, 58v FICM, water pump
Mishimoto radiator and Intercooler. New ford t stat
Issues. First I noticed truck was a little more laggy and EGTs a little hotter. Was told FCIM tune would be warmer and a little smokier. Not sure how I like wheel.
Running tow tune along with FCIM tune my ECT now runs 196-212 driving around town. 50 degrees ambient. EOT takes a while to get to 190. But will run 195-213 in same conditions. I live at 7200' in Colorado. Last week pulling 8k ECT hit 220 and EOT 223. I know deltas are different with BPD oil cooler but this seems hot for winter temps. Not running a winter front. EGTs run 800-1200 in most conditions. I can get to 1300 if I keep in the pedal on an incline.
Seems ECT used to run 188-192 pretty much all the time except when towing. I hit 222 once pulling camper over Wolf Creek but it was August and much hotter. This was with OEM oil cooler. I can hear fan once I get to 210. ECT seems to want to stay near EOT once EOT has gotten above 195. Figured they would be different with oil cooler.
Not sure what to look for. Doing all the mods at once makes it hard to trouble shoot. Thanks for the help. Levi
