EOT w/ bullet proof oil cooler kit

I was wondering if anyone has experience with the bullet proof oil cooler kit and what EOT you are seeing after the install. Which mount did you opt for? Are you seeing EOT below ECT now that it is independently air cooled system?

I am good at the moment with my delta at 10 degrees. I will end up doing the egr delete and either a new oem oil cooler or kicking around the bullet proof kit, but is a little pricey. Just trying to get a grasp on cost/benefit ratio.

i cant give you an answer on temps, but i will say that if youre not going to be doing anything big and crazy with the truck.. the oem rebuild will be fine, as long as you do delete the egr/cooler, get a coolant filter and flush to an ELC coolant.

Has any one tried using a additional engine oil cooler inline with the by pass oil filtering system ?

The bypass oil filter only sends a small amount of oil to the bypass filter. Putting an air to oil cooler in this line would be useless as not enough oil passes through to have any cooling effect on the overall volume of oil.

With an air to oil cooler it is certainly possible to have your oil temps below that of the coolant. In fact, all of these external oil coolers should include a thermostat to make sure that the oil reaches operating temp. In freezing winter weather without a thermostat it is possible for the oil to never reach anything close to proper operating temperature, which is not good for the engine either.

I would stick to the rebuilt OEM cooler, delete the EGR with ELC coolant and a coolant filter. Some have said their oil temps get hot sitting in traffic with the air cooled setup in hot climates. Some dont have problems at all, so its really your call.

It's possible if you don't run a thermostat but you should really run a remote air to oil cooler with a 180* thermostat. The 5R110 trans has a built in thermostat the I believe is set at 165* or so before it sends trans fluid to the trans cooler. Something to consider if you decide to go with the BD oil cooler. They are not that expensive and are easy to plumb in. I run a 180* -12AN Mocal thermostat on my open track car with an external oil cooler.

That's a possibility too. However the do make fans for the remote oil coolers too. To have a bullet proof external oil cooler you need both. I don't run fans on my oil cooler because it is never sitting in traffic. I am building a remote oil cooler for my IRS diff gear oil though and that will have a fan due to mounting considerations. It will also have a thermostat. Pumping cold gear oil through a cooler is rough on the pump lol.

I plan on leaving my oem coolant to oil cooler on the truck though.

The BulletProof Diesel oil cooler has an available thermostat that allows it to bypass the air-to-liquid heat exchanger until it achieves operating temperature.

I am here in the heat of Arizona and until it comes up to temperature, the EOT is a fair amount cooler. Once they come up to temperature, they are usually pretty close.
