Check out the half kit from bullet proof diesel. Its an extra oil cooler that seems to work really well. I am hoping they come out with a system for the 6.4 that does away with the factory oil cooler like they have for the 6.0.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe it is the one directly behind the intercooler. Should be wide and rectangular.

That is not the oil cooler. The oil cooler is not external. You are probably thinking of the transmission cooler.

I agree with you guys.

I think the bullet proof one is great BUT there has to some where to run hoses and then connect to a oil cooler.

Only place I see would be to splice into the turbo oil lines and run a line to a new cooler and then another filter and back to the turbo. Line seems small and I think it would only sample the oil ie like coolant filter. Of course I could be wrong. Nothing new there.

In other words my buddy at ford dealership said they can't look pass the bullet proof cooler but if it was more hidden like not replacing the oil filter housing they could look over it if my motor had problems.

Agreed, just wish there was some where.
Return line can be dumped in the top side of the oil pan but where is a good source place. Hmm..

I personally wouldn't even mess with something like this. You have to make sure the oil pressure is not affected and that all the important parts are getting the oil they need. I am waiting until someone comes out with a kit that has done a lot of research and proves that it works well.
