Where to connect oil lines for aftermarket oil cooler

hi fellas I'm wanting to install an oil cooler besides the stock one. sometime soon i'll probably jerk the egr out cause it's giving me insuficent flow codes . I'll rebuild the stock oil cooler at the same time. But I would like to install a second cooler but I'm not going to spend alot of money doing so. Any help and sugestions would be great . thanks raffter

Get a billet oil cap and oil filler cap. Run the lines to your oil cooler...done deal.

Heres the deal about that if you dont know exactly what your doing your gonna run into problems. The stock system you really dont have a way to hook in another oil cooler, myself, Doug at Gogo and another member from the Nation are discussing this right now and using ideas, its not as simple as just throwing in a cooler and adding lines, you have to figure flow, restriction issues, oil pressure, If you restrict flow your gonna have issues, then finding a correct cooler to operate this and thermostat, as filter assembly, your not gonna be able just to use a cap off the stock filter housing. Believe me it takes plan and parts etc.

I did what Heavyassault is talking about. I have a line coming from the oil cap to my fs-2500 and then I have a cooler mounted just behind the grill and then It dumps back into the oil fill. I kept track of the temps when I first installed it. I should have done before and after temps. So I really dont know if It is helping The oil temps average 6* cooler than the coolant. I dont keep the oil temp guage hooked all of the time (to many guages) only when I want to check the differences between the coolant and the oil.

Here are some links to some AMSOIL customer's installation. Not how you have to do it. 6.0 right?

AMSOIL.com - By-Pass Oil Filter: 2003 Ford F250 4X4 6.0L. PowerStroke Turbo Diesel

AMSOIL.com - By-Pass Oil Filter: 2004 Ford 6.0 L Powerstroke Diesel

AMSOIL.com - By-Pass Oil Filter: 2004 Ford F-250 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel

http://www.amsoil.com/bypassfilters/....0L_Diesel.pdf

Hope these help. Let me know if you need anything else.

I see Amsoil sells the caps. Does anybody else sell them? And a 1/8 inch hole doesent allow for much flow, has anybody tried drilling them out a little or that might drop the pressure to much. And what is the cost on those caps? Thanks raffter

So you can see some of the issues that Rescue was taking about. The billet cap has a 1/8 npt hole and is designed for a bypass oil filter. Using that to feed an oil cooler is like using a straw to divert the water from a fire hose to fill your swimming pool. There are lots of things to consider here just like Rescue said. Do you have a problem with your current oil temps? If not leave it alone or be prepared to invest some $$$. If you do it wrong it could cost you your motor.

Got questions about your 6.0?
