elite diesel vs bulletproof

id like to get some opinions on the elite diesels oil cooler..... ive been looking at the bullet proof set up for some time. and i have come across the elite diesel set up about a month ago. both are nice set ups and unfourtantly elite dosent show what the hole unit looks like?? but after calling them they say its simuilar to what collin mitchel made on here pertty much a flat peice of steel thats ported to allow your fluids to flow through. but the diffrence that i think is nice is that the elite set up has a dual thermostat one before the cooler to open it to flow through the cooler. and then one in the cooler to kick the fan on if the oil temp goes past i think they said 220f ?? wich is nice for hot days stuck in traffic or in town stop and go at the lights i know either way im laying out 2k its just wich one now ??

The electric fan is a neat idea. I haven't heard much about it otherwise. One thing I noticed is that the cooler is mounted in front of the AC condensor. That might make your AC not work as well. I personally, am not a fan of Elite, but that is neither here nor there. I have the BPD oil cooler and it works great, the quality is second to none.

We all know the BPD kit is tried and trued with lots of r&d from BPD. Its really not that much more expensive than the elite kit. id be iffy on the Elite kit, since there arent any good pics, and whats the Core charge for? for a few hundred more on bpds kit, you arent reusing stock stuff. just my .02$ The bpd kit is on my wish list.

That thing is a joke compared to the BPD kit. No Comparison. BPD hands down.

Got questions about your 6.0?

I believe that the Elite kit is modeled after or may even be a rebranded Liberator kit. It has given folks issues with AC operation and I know at least one case where they bought the Liberator kit and after having issues switched over to the BPD kit.

PS. I also have the BPD kit and it's top notch. The two might say they perform the same function, but then I guess both a Prius and a Super Duty can get you back and forth to work...

I just finished my BPD instal and love how easy it was to instal and it came with everything needed. Also there were no hidden surprises. Haven't had a chance to put any miles on it yet but the product is awesome. I contacted Liberater and Elite Diesel before bying BPD and both were pretty secretive about their products. I wanted to see the full installation manuals and the only place I got complete satisfaction in that department was BPD. Everything is up front and available to anybody anytime for download whether you've purchased their product or not. Also as Adam had pointed out the AC will be compromised and may need to be overcharged to handle the extra heat generated from the cooler being placed in front of the condensor which is the main reason the BPD cooler is behind.
