ELC change question

So heres the story. Bought the truck with 90000 on the clock. Bought the coolant filter kit. Cut some filters open after a couple thousand miles and no signs of anything in it. Truck still has Gold in it at this point. EOT and ECT are within 10 at highway speed.

Truck started smoking/steaming at start up even if warm. Switched to Rotella T5 and it cleared right up.

Did an ELC change out and used Restore and Restroe Plus. Put in a 190 thermo at the same time. NOTHING CAME OUT OF THE FLUSH. DIDNT EVEN COME OUT DIRTY ON THE RESTORE FLUSHES. Had my coolant filter hooked up and changed the filter out after. cut it open and it was completely clean.

So now I run down the highway and my ECT sits between 190-194 and my EOT runs between 210-218.

Has this happened to anyone else???????
Any ideas??????
