EOT help

Just switched to running Rotella Synthetic was wondering what the safe limits for my EOT for short and longer periods of time are. I never let it get over 230 when running standard oil, is that still a good temp to not exceed. Have the BPD EGR cooler and soon will install the BPD Oil Cooler conv kit (hopefully by the end of summer)

Thanks in advance

It's not the dino or Syn oil it's the difference between ECT-EOT that counts. Just so you know i run a 5w40 Syn oil and my ECT 192-194* EOT 198-200* solo then when i pull my 14k 5er add 10* to each. The highest i have seen is ECT 218* EOT 228* pulling a 7% grade 6 miles long in 90* weather. Looks like you need to do a coolant flush a must before you do the new oil cooler or you may be doing another one later or if you do a $2400 BPD oil cooler you should be good then but you also need to install a coolant filter to remove the casting sand.

Just had the PBD EGR cooler installed last oct (less then 3000 miles ago) at the local ford dealer and a new oem oil cooler. They did a complete coolant flush at that time. My delta t between the EOT & ECT is between 6 & 11 degrees when heavy hauling up long steep grades, i just notice my temps getting to around 230 and that was running at stock level on my evolution
