Someone on FTE called and the oil cooler isn't a good option. The temp spread was ~40 at a cruising speed

The oil cooler is a FORD stocker, if free of silicates, it should work fine.

Only looks to be $25 cheaper than the BPD kit. Why not go with the one you don't have to second guess?

this one is the EGR cooler and upgraded oil cooler. I thought that was a little over 2,000 for the oil cooler / egr cooler throught BPD.

795 from bullet proof, thats gaskets, egr cooler, oil cooler (stock) and other crap needed to install. When ordering also upgrade your turbo drain line and HPOP screen which you can also get from BPD.

This is similar to the kit they sell for $820, the remote mount oil cooler you're talking about is around $1,800 by itself.

Do not put that IPR junk oil cooler on your truck. They increased the size of the coolant passages so there would be less restriction to combat clogging. Unfortunately it allows the coolant to pass through too quickly for effective heat transfer. You do not want one of these in your motor.

If you want something other that the oem oil cooler there is nothing on the market that compares to the BPD external cooler. I not only cools the oil very effectively, it allows the coolant to run cooler since it is not having to carry off the oil heat too. And last but most important it removes any possibility that a rupture oil cooler will cross contaminate the coolant or oil. However their kit with the oem cooler and egr cooler is still a great option if you swap out the coolant for ELC.
