ECT/EOT delta?

Alright guys , forgive me for not knowing but what is ect/eot delta? Was reading another post and saw this mentioned and dont know what it means. I am fairly new to the 6.0 world. Have had both a 7.3 and a 12v Cummins, back in April bought my 07 350. I tell ya I love my truck ,and knock on wood have had no issues,the truck is bone stock and runs great, only thing Ive done to it is change to amsoil 5w 40. But I read all the stuff on here and it scares the hell out of me! Thanks

It is the difference in between the two temps. Should not be over 15*

Priority #1- Data Monitor- Scangauge, Edge Insight CTS, CS, etc.
Want to keep an eye on oil temp and coolant temp. They should be within a couple degrees of eachother, if the oil temp is hotter than the coolant be more than 15* then that is a sign of a bad(restricted) oil cooler.

Gotcha, thanks for the quick reply! What type of monitor is recommended to keep track of this? I saw an edge product mentioned in another post

Edge Insight CTS is the best in my opinion.

I tell ya what bro, I had an old school 91 dodge W250 w/ the 12V , I bought it with 230k on it and sold it with 297k on it. I put an injector pump on it and that was it. No electronics at all, everything mechanical. Something to be said for simple. Not as flashy or nice as my 6.0 for sure but damn reliable and ran like a champ for .40 per gallon on vegetable oil.

Gauges are a must on a 6.0 because the good looking ones on the dash only move when it is to late, the best one to get in my book is the Edge Insight CTS with the expandable pyro and a pyro is a must along with a fuel pressure gauge because under 45lbs at WOT will kill injectors and a coolant filter to remove the casting sand to save the oil cooler. The list goes on.

12v is the most reliable diesel engine ever offered in a passenger vehicle
