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)

S&B Air Intake
BPD EGR Cooler
Everything Else Stock

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
