Flushing the cooling system as we speak (truck is at the dealership) and I am cautiously optimistic that it will help what I think is a significantly clogged oil cooler. Reasoning behind my thoughts are that the EOT never gets above 217° (ECT is 187°) in the morning on the way to work but the same trip back home gets the EOT to 232° (ECT is 195°). In yesterdays heat of 97°, the EOT/ECT was 240°/202°! Does, or maybe should, the outside temperature affect the running temperature of the truck that much? I already have an appointment at Hallas Performance for an oil cooler-ectomy and replacement if the flush is unsuccessful - just wish I didn't have to spend another $1000 or so to get something done that should've been done when the EGR delete was done. OK, <rant off> for now...thanks for the ear...!
