Oil Cooler Question

I've been reading on here about the EGR, Oil Cooler, Coolant filter combo fix and it seems a good idea to me. I have 140,000 trouble free miles on my 6.0 and want to keep it that way and if I do the work myself that seems to be a fairly inexpensive mod. (Sinister EGR for $275.00, new stock oil cooler for $275.00, and filter kit for $

But I keep seeing people talk about replacing the Oil Cooler but they never mention if this is a stock cooler replace or an aftermarket that they recommend? I've seen stock coolers on teh ebays for <$300 and oil to air coolers for >$1000.00. What have most of you guys done? Gone with a new stock and relied on the filter or something aftermarket?

I believe most, if not all on this forum replace the old clogged oil cooler with a new OEM one from Ford.

All but a few are just rebuilding the OEM oil cooler with a new heat exchanger. The aftermarket kits that work are in the $2k range and I don't think necessary. If you are going to replace the oil cooler you should first run a couple of cans of VC-9 through it then drain and flush. Install the new cooler and refill with ELC coolant from Cat, Rotella, Fleetrite, Texaco.

Don't forget to install a coolant bypass filter system or you'll be back in the same boat in no time.
