Home made oil cooler delete?

Ok so the oil cooler has busted in my truck and im gonna have to replace it thats a given. I would like to do a delete kit from performance machine but 1900 is alot when u can spend 300 and get a new oil cooler... So I want to know how possible it would be to build my own I have the resources but is it worth fooling with and does anybody possibly have pics of a delete kit?

It's been tried a couple times on here. Not sure if anyone has perfected one or not. There's a lot that goes into getting it to work properly.

I know there are some DIY oil coolers done on the 7.3, and rumors of people using a 7.3 remote cooler and somehow plumbing it for a 6.0 but as far as how it's done Definitely keep us posted if you find something on the subject. I was thinking of doing something of the nature after seeing the prices when I did my EGR and studs but it never hit the top of the priority list

If I had a 6.0 in the garage (without a truck wrapped around it) and about a week off work, I could probably fab something up...but ATM i have neither so I pass the torch to you lol

Only know of a couple of people that did it - it takes a LOT of designing, measuring, custom machining - not worth it IMO.

Nothing wrong w/ the stock oil cooler if you keep the coolant system healthy.

Sounds like too much work when you can just put a new stock one on and a coolant filter and not worry about it anymore.

Yea I was wonderin if it was worth the time and trouble it would take to do it when u can do the same thing with a new cooler and a coolant filtration system... If I can find a spare motor to mess with im gonna try it and ill definately post pics and parts used if it works I dont think I have the time to do without my truck long enough for trial and error
