how much pressure does the water exit the oil cooler?

Anybody how knows the plumbing of these engines know about the water flow out of the oil/water cooler? I ask the the GOGO stage 1 intake completely removes the egr cooler, and instead of the stock 1" tubing that ran from the exit of the oil cooler to the egr cooler pipe, the GOGO replaces that with 3/8 hose out of the oil/water cooler, and routes it directly back up to the overflow bottle. I can see the water re-enters the overflow bottle with a descent amount of pressure, but not much more then like a standard garden hose. I was wondering if clamping down the hose size with GOGO kit, has any negative effect on the flow? like backs it up, or slows down the flow of water throughout the engine? I dont know if all the water flows through this port? or just some? with not much pressure flowing through that hose, as I can see in the overflow, I can't imagine all the water flows through that route? Curious.. anybody know?

IIRC there are three passages out of the front engine cover for coolant flow. Two of them for cooling the crankcase and cylinders and the third is for the oil cooler and EGR cooler. The coolant flows through the oil cooler and then into the EGR cooler. After the EGR cooler the coolant flows back into the maniflod and then the front cover.

I've never looked at the gogo manifold, but from your explanation it sounds like it goes straight to the degas so nothing would be re-entering the front cover. Since that whole "third" loop is only for the oil and EGR coolers, which you don't, have it makes sense that it's no longer needed and routed to the degas. I don't see it being a problem but hey, what do I know!

Hope this helps with the question! If not

This is what I am talking about, it come out of the front engine cover here, and goes right to degas bottle. Gogo sends you a modified piece in picture with male end for that hose, and the hose too. My question is, that water exit on the stock cover, is like a 3/4 ID hose, and on my new BPD cover, it is the same, for me to continue to run this smaller 3/8 ID hose off this port, am i backing up any pressure or doing any negative effects?

wow, found this article, great read on the oil/water cooler issue. Has great diagrams that show that circuit only services itself and the egr cooler, so in my case, with both the oil/water cooler AND egr cooler in the garbage and not in the truck, that circuit is useless, so all is good.

Great read:
