gett'en just the oil cooler replaced

How many of you have justed replaced the oil cooler and not the egr cooler. Oil is about 30 degree hotter than the coolant. I know they say to replace both at the same time but I'm alittle short on cash and I'm getting ready to head out of town for the july 4th weekend. About 400 miles round trip. I'll be pulling a 25 foot tt and the bed loaded down with camping gear. So yah I'll be pushing the truck alittle.

You have to pull a lot of junk off to replace your oil cooler. When you get to the oil cooler your egr cooler will be sitting right next to it. So do both, also you dont know if your oil cooler or your egr cooler is bad. You could swap the oil cooler only to find the egr cooler is the problem. This would be my advice, if you live somewhere that you dont need to pass smog visual delete the egr cooler and change the oil cooler. If not, change both, i know it sucks but paying for the labor twice sucks more. Also, 30 degrees is a freaking lot, i would park the truck until you get it fixed to prevent blowing your head gaskets. Good luck,

Has anyone used Innovative Performance Research. I see there egr cooler looks very similar to the bullet proof diesel and they say there oil cooler is better than ford stock. There prices are alittle bit better as well.

i have never heard anything good about them. Bulletproof is the way to go, its well worth the money if you think you never have to change it again. I know it is hard at first but worth it in the long run

Their oil cooler is a POS and I strongly suggest you forget about it. It is poorly designed and allows the coolant to flow too fast to effectively pull the heat from the oil. Do Not Do This.

Replace with the OEM oil cooler or the BPD external. You can get the OEM oil cooler from Tousley Ford Parts for about $200. Replace the EGR cooler also or delete it. Don't just do one or the other.

Yea heard the IPR oil cooler was junk, plus they dont even have any in stock and ready to ship. Has been that way for a long time, so not sure if they cant make em or whats going on but on their site its Out Of Stock. For EGR cooler, BPD is the way to go! They stand behind their products!!

Maybe because they're a POS and nobody is buying them. They have a delta of 30-40 degrees, but it won't clog up on you.

I've been dealing with BPD. I had them work on my ficm. I'll be buying there egr cooler and gasket kit. I can't delete it cause here in Phoenix we have to go through emissions every year. I'm trying to find the parts as cheap as possible. I need to have the egr and oil cooler in the truck no later than Monday. My vacation starts next week.

I run the IPR egr cooler bypass. No problems with it so far. I like it because it uses the factory EGR coolant tube

Ok so what's the deal with the liberator oil cooler setup for the 6.0. It's about $1000 cheaper than the BPD setup. I'm not sure if it gets rid of the stock oil/coolant cooler like the BFP does. I know BPD is way ahead of the game but damn I just don't want to have to sell my right nut just to get my trucks temp back into spec.
