need some opinions

So I bought my 6.4L about 3 months ago. Have slowly been changing out problematic parts. This is my first diesel and am learning as I go.
First off I have noticed on my tuner that my Oil temps are hitting about 220 in stop and go traffic while my coolant temps are only hitting around 205 at the time. should I get a brand new oil cooler or will the BPD half kit work in this scenario?
Also I am statring to notice a small leak in the driver side tank of the rad. It is so far not leaking alot bc it isnt even hitting the concrete as well as minimal loss of level in the degas bottle.
So any opinions as to which problem to tackle first? I know a new rad at some point but what is the absolute must for starters.
The list of upgrades, if it makes any difference, is a flo pro 5" DPF/CAT delete turbo back exhaust, S&B CAI, Mini Maxx tuner, CCV mod, and a dieselsite coolant bypass filtration system (this is how I noticed the leak). Thanks in advance, sorry to be long winded.

I too am a new 6.4 owner and have the cooling of the oil issue. I only get a little green wrench lite on the dash when I tow something. I guess my oil temps are climbing cause of a oil cooler clogging problem. Its the Coolant side of the cooler that clogs. Ive tried flushing and t stats but Ill have to change the cooler soon. It didn't help. Take care of the cooling system problems first. If your not towing or getting the green wrench lite, the oil temps should not hurt things too much now.

If your oil temps are getting that much higher than your coolant temps your oil cooler is clogged. I would start to think about replacing it with a 15+ degree delta. You could try the half kit from bpd. I have heard good things about it.

The BPD half kit is in the mail and should be here today. Just having trouble getting the turbo oil feed line out of the oil housing. Is there a special tool or trick for this?
