New Oil Cooler, but EOT/ECT delta is high!?
I just got my truck done after installing the sinister EGR delete, a new ford oil cooler, and ARP studs and flushing and using EC-1 and Mitch's instructions.
I did not have the Edge Insight to monitor anything before we tore the truck apart, but now that its back together there is a pretty solid 10 deg delta when cruising around. We did not flush the coolant prior to pulling everything apart, but afterwards flushed it over and over and over until all the flush was out and it was clear.
Are there certain circumstances where it is ok to have a larger delta? I have not really done a long highway cruise yet. Tonite I have to go for a drive, so if I set the cruise at 70 for 20 minutes or so, would the numbers I am getting then be meaningful?
This has got me pretty frustrated.
