Bullet Proof Diesel Oil & EGR Cooler Upgrade

Hey, has anyone installed the Bullet Proof Diesel air to oil oil cooler along with their EGR cooler upgrade? Just wondering what your experience has been. Any failures on either?

you would be money ahead to put a new oil cooler in and a coolant filter in place. this will solve the problem of getting debris in the oil cooler. it is better to have the oil temps regulated by the coolant. with a air cooled set up temps could be higher in stop and go or dead locked traffic. on the flip side your oil temps could be lower than desired and give you a rough running situation. not to mention cold weather warm up.

Exactly!!

Delete the EGR cooler, rebuild the oem oil cooler, add a coolant filtration system and possibly an oil bypass system and you will have a great platform.

That's kinda of what I was thinking, I live in a cold climate. Thanks for the input.

A buddy of mine was just telling me about this. I told him the same thing about wanting the oil warm (regulated by coolant)
He came back with something about the screen under the oil cooler being a poor design and a remote setup being much better. Well the price tag he told me about ill just be rebuilding the stock oil cooler thank you very much
