Upgraded Oil Cooler??

So the more I read about 6.0L problems and the oil cooler getting clogged causing the EGR cooler to overheat and blow I was wondering if anybody or company has thought of making an upgraded oil cooler? I know there is an upgraded version of the EGR cooler, but if they upgraded the oil cooler to more "bulletproof" then the truck could stay in stock mode?

Any thoughts from anyone?

Has anyone installed this oil cooler? Have there been EGR cooler failures after the install? How much more oil does the system then need if this unit is installed?

You could just go to a remote oil cooler that uses forced air instead of the coolant system to remove heat. This would make the oil last longer make the oil due to the reduced heat and give you better filtration options... The kits that are out there are 2-3 times what you can rebuild a oil cooler for. Putting a new oil cooler and coolant filter are a lot cheaper in the short run.

yep, they are expensive and not "proven" I suggest to customers delete the EGR rebuild the oil cooler add a coolant filtration system and a oil bypass, that would run you about $1700 +/- so you are still cheaper then the external oil cooler and you have a proven setup that works.

Exactly what Adam said. Unless you plan more into your truck that needs the demand of a oil cooler delete / external oil cooler I wouldnt get it honestly. Only folks running a oil cooler delete are guys that are in bigger injectors etc.
