Thats good news. Always good to hear someone without problems. You made sure to do the driving test correctly right?

LOL......its 55-65mph but before starting you have to make sure the oil temp is above 190*. Need to be driving for approx 30 minutes while monitoring the temps unloaded on flat ground.

Temps were up to snuff. That's literally the best I can do around here locally.
4* was the most. I actually was around 2* 90% of the time.

I will for sure do it again when I have a better stretch of road to work with. The truck had been running for hours before I started the test. I feel its a good indicator and for now I'm all smiles, quit being a dream robber hahahahaha

It usually takes my oil temp approx 20-25 miles to get where it needs to be. My drive to work is 15 miles (highway) and my coolant temp is 192 and my oil is 193. My deltas are 7 degrees when I'm fully warmed up. Warchild is right with his comment about driving 30 miles for a good test.

Thanks Mark, I'll for sure do it again properly. Like I said, that's about as good as It gets around here. I was just pumped at my temps
