First readings with my CTS... What do you think?

Well, Just got my CTS after having the truck for about two months now, and this is what I got:

ECT - 186-190
EOT - 190-196 ( reached 197 for a minute then back down )
FICM - 47.5-48.5 always
Batt Voltage - 13.5-13.9
TFT - 145-152 range

Truck is completely stock, OASIS showed oil cooler, EGR cooler, and FICM all replaced under Ford warranty about 30,000 miles ago.

I was only able to drive on the highway for about 20 minutes at 60-70 mph ( hopefully that was long enough ). Most of the time, my ECT stayed right around 190 and my EOT was at 196. At one time ECT was at 186 and EOT was at 196, but the delta didn't stay at 10 for very long ( ECT crept back up to 190 ). Never saw ECT get above 190 and never had EOT get above 197. The 197 was ony for a minute then back down to 196.

So how do these numbers look and sound to you all? I think I'm looking pretty good. Thanks for the wealth of knowledge I've found on here. This is an awesome group to now be a part of!

Sounds like it's working great! Congrats on the new truck and the CTS.

The stock impeller on the stock water pump is made of a hardened plastic that can become brittle over time and break apart. We have had quite a few folks complain about this issue occurring. BulletProof Diesel has redesigned the impeller out of anodized billet aluminum and mounted it up on the factory water pump. It works great and I never have to worry about the impeller breaking especially when I'm towing. Here's a link to it below.

Thanks for the input. So out of curiosity, should oil temp always stay in the 190's under normal operating conditions assuming oil cooler working properly? And coolant temps stay in the high 180's, low 190's?

The EOT and ECT should remain within 15* of each other, although there are a number of factors that need to be considered like ambient air temperature, amount of load on the truck, vehicle speed, etc.

Having said that, yes, mine is usually around 190* when cruising around town.

cool, that makes sense. air temp today here in MD was in low 50's and both my EOT and ECT were both right around 190 during city driving when I was just cruising around ( not on highway doing the 20 minute test ).

Anyway of knowing if you have a cracked impeller? That looks like a killer setup.

You might contact lilpooh who has had it happen to him. He's also running a BPD water pump (the 90mm size since he has an 04).
