Today is the day...

Did my cooler swap last weekend along with STC fitting, 6.4 banjo's, Blue spring upgrade, and RCD EGR delete kit. Today it is going to be 94 degrees out and with humidity index, it will be approx 108 degrees. Going to see what my temps end up being.. Hoping for the best. If my temps still end up being high, I am gonna take it out to the country and shoot it...

As long as you cleaned everything else out (rest of the cooling system) you shouldnt re-clog that bad boy! We had 90s this weekend. I rocked the AC on towing the boat (light, about 5k combo). saw a max of 5* and that was after ripping on her. The oil temp chases down the coolant temp within a minute or two bringing her back to the 0-3* diff.

You will be fine I bet!

Your Zen, as you put it, porked me... Before I fall off my rocker... it was 95 degrees and weatherman said heat index was 111 degrees. Ran the air full blast at 65 MPH with cruise on... Coolant steady about 198 and Oil steady about 212... I think I am about to get really pi$$ed ! ! ! All that work and a 14 degree delta??? WTF?? Can you guys tell I am mad?

Let it go for a bit and watch it Bruce. You deleted the egr cooler so the 15 degree delta isn't as critical as if the egr cooler is there. Your absolute temps are well within reason. Run it for a while so you can get a trend. No need to panic at this point.

I have a 9 or 10 delta when it is in the 80's empty...when I pull 10k it stays there and even see the delta come down to 7deg. I think you are fine where you are.

14*??? Wow, might want to get the panic button back out...


I keed, I keed... Just wanted to bust your chops for a second. I would second Mitch's comment to just watch it for a bit.
