Who to use for BPD oil cooler install

Live about 30 miles north of SEA and am going to have the BPD oil cooler kit installed with the cold weather kit. Have heard some good and bad things about "Randys Off Road" and "Diesel Outfitters" when it comes to the 6.0 Liter. I want a quality install for a fair price, dont mind paying a little more to know it was done right.

Thanks

Yes both of these shops are listed on their site. I actually called BPD and they would not make a reccomendation for anyone or tell me who installs the most oil collers in the area

Or, you could get one of the local guys to help you install it yourself

I know someone who has used randys with his 6.4 and has no complaints. Ive bought from them and they don't seem so bad, they have been around quite awhile. That dosent mean im taking my 6.0 there though. Iv never heard of the other shop. I know dynomite diesel in monroe gets good reviews from the cummins, dmax and early ford guys i dunno about the late fords though...im in granite falls and may be able to help if needed??

Did you do your own oil cooler install? I too have had good luck with Randys in the past, they did my Evolution and some exhaust work. Just want to make sure they know what they are doing when it comes to the tempermental 6.o liter. What did your friend with the 6.4 have them do?

I helped Josh (westcoaststrokin) install his BPD oil cooler set up. I wasn't there for the entire install, but it didn't seem too bad. A lot of stuff gets pulled off/out of the engine bay, and it takes a little time, but it's a doable job for a DIYer and a buddy or two.

And, as an added benifit, there's no better way to get more familiar with your engine and figure out how stuffs working than to rip into it and do some work

Let us (the Cascade Coal Rollers) know if you're interested in doing the install yourself. We have a few members that are quite handy at wrenching on a 6.0 and I'm sure we could get a couple guys to give you a hand. Also, feel free to post any type of BS you like in here CCR Chat Thread , that's where all the CCR members spend most of their time

If Randys did all that for him i think i would feel comfortable having them do my oil cooler. Thanks for the help. I own a HVAC company and if i can ever return the favor let me know.

Thanks
