BPD EGR cooler and Oil cooler

Is anyone on here running the BPD EGR cooler and or their remote oil cooler system? Wondering what your opinions on the kit were, and if it eliminated the need to constantly worry about the clogging of the stock oil cooler. Does it have issues that replace the stock oil cooler issues?

I have an insight CTS installed and my ECT and EOT are only running 7 degrees right now. I plan on replacing the ford gold with ELC and doing an oil change to Rotella T6 this week. It seems that the flushing, ELC, and monitoring are to help prevent the build up of crud in the factory oil cooler and are able to extend it's life. But if the BPD kit eliminates that totally, and removes a worry, it is probably worth the money to me.

Tried a search, but either my search-fu is bad, or there is not much out there.

I was in your shoes except my cooler was clogged.

I looked into the BPD remote oil cooler and this was my conclusion:

Really expensive! and since I live in the cold weather climate I needed the bypass feature so again really expensive!

My advice, flush that ford gunk out and put some elc in and be done with it. Once you have a clean system and run ELC the 6.0 is just as bullet proof as the BPD.

How long does it take for the gold coolant to break down? My truck had 5 oil/egr coolers installed under warranty. If the coolant was the culprit it was breaking down and failing in ~20K miles. I find that hard to believe.

Quite a few members have weighed the options and spent the extra coin on the BPD system. I doubt they have a money tree in the backyard so they must see something they like. I know if I still had my 6Leaker I would have a BPD kit on it.

Without monitoring the gold coolant can break down in roughly 30k

As to the BPD stuff its extremely high quality.

I run the BPD 6.0 kit, condenser mounted oil cooler with cold weather package, and their EGR cooler. I love it! No need to worry about the coolant plugging coolers, and my EOT are much closer to the ECT (within 5* normally). I still run the Ford Gold too, and don't plan to switch to an ELC any time soon, just have it flushed every 30k

If you want to absolutely put the possibility of an oem type oil cooler failure behind you the the BPD oil cooler is the way to go. It is expensive for a reason and I don't know too many people that have one that are complaining about what they got for their money. The oem cooler besides clogging can rupture cross contaminating the oil and coolant systems making for a huge mess and a really expensive repair. That scenario is not possible with the BPD oil cooler since it is totally separated from the cooling system. I am very satisfied with mine.

However a clean cooling system with a good clean oem oil cooler and an egr delete with ELC coolant is a pretty reliable setup.
