I am a n00b. This is not knowledge, it's from a lot of recent reading.
I have successfully backflushed my clogged oil cooler and got the temp spread down from 45 to 16. If I was towing that would still be urgent, but I plan to wait for better weather to do the oil cooler swap.
In the meantime I have already done the chemical flushes and switched to ELC, and added the coolant filter. So I am not interested in the aftermarket cooler. According to all I've read, after doing what I've done, I can expect the OEM cooler to last (if not forever) a lot longer than the first one did, and I want the coolant helping the oil warm up.
I am considering using the BPD EGR cooler, however. I'm not interested in a delete.
