oil cooler delete kit is finally finished

I finally finished my oil cooler delete kit on my 6.0. Everybody I've saw that has built one of these made a plate for the cover over the hpop res. After some thought I finally figured out that theres no need to make a plate for it, you can use the stock cover and oil filter housing with some mods. Then you don't have to make a new brace for the fuel filter or change anything like the turbo oil feed or the oil pressure sensors. I've taken a couple pics but I didnt take alot but you should be able to see the mods I've made to it. My oil temp stays about 180 give or take and never gets over 205, even for long idle times. I have about 600 dollars in the whole kit so it's alot cheaper then the bpd kit but at the same time it's a really nice kit.

Have you towed yet with it? Just curious where your oil temps are? Also did you relocate the oil filter with a spin on type?

Yea i relocated the oil filter to spin on and mounted it behind the bumper on the drivers side mainly so u dont have to pull the grille off to change the oil filter. I havent pulled with it yet but i ran it over an hour on the interstate in 80 degree weather about 75 mph and they never got any higher.

Can you take pics of your setup on the truck? You could install a small electric fan with temp sensor at 200 or something to help keep the oil cool

Ill take more pics. When i mounted my cooler i strapped it to the condenser and sealed around the edges so the fan has to pull air through the cooler.

Glad to see someone else do this. I am doing the same thing now and my cooler housing is being welded now. I am doing mine the same except for a few things. In this pic the red circle mine is being welded shut. And the blue circle is where my return bung is being welded. That way I don't have to use the stock filter housing like you did. From my understanding of how the oil flows through this thing you need that red circle welded shut. That hole was for the oil to feed up into the filter then it returns back through the middle hole. So basically you have pressurized oil exiting there and the bung you welded on the top cover. So theoretically only half your oil is being filtered and cooled. It's basically flowing out of the red hole and back in the blue hole. I am no expert on this and could be wrong, hopefully someone will chime in that knows exactly.

Here is my thread where I was asking how this thing works to know how to weld it. Look twards the bottom of the first page at lilpoohs pictures of how this thing flows. The red hole you left open is the anti-drainback hole that feeds oil into the filter.
