oil temp or coolant temp is 220 if its oil temp it could be because you flushed so much through the coolant system that you loosened up debris and clogged up the oil cooler. also make sure your coolant mixture is right

is there a way to clean the oil cooler or is it just one of those things you just have to replace?

It is the oil temp

What is the difference between your coolant and oil temp? It sounds like you clogged your oil cooler. No you cant clean it. If its clogged it needs to be replaced.

fords number is 15 degrees between oil and water temp. that is on the 6.0L and 6.4L.
if either number is out of the 15 degree range, the oil cooler has restrictions.

the coolant temp stays at 190. i am thinking of doing the bulletpoof diesel half kit. seems to be a better fix than the oe filter that could just clog up again. has anyone had any experience with this kit??

Well after doing research and not wanting to take my truck to the dealer again. I ended up purchaseing and installing the BulletProof Diesel 6.4 half kit. It only took a few hours to install and now my oil temp has not gone over my coolant temp!
