Another plugged oil cooler FML...

Deltas have been increasing gradually since I changed my cooler (didn't flush it first, noob mistake) I was towing 12000LBS on a tongue hitch, mild amount of hills in the area. Coolant ended up hitting 215 and the scary part is EOT hit 238 when climbing hills.

Now I don't feel like swapping another oil cooler out, so in regards to people who have done the BP external oil cooler kit. How was the installation compared to a regular oil cooler time frame wise.

check your delta on flat highway and at 60 mph unloaded first... that delta may not be too high for a load in hills...

. The "delta" test is specifically for unloaded trucks.

Hills here are probably smaller then your thinking lol. Delta un-loaded is 14ish, so it's out of spec IMO. Aren't these trucks set to defuel around 245* EOT.

It will defuel at approximately 253*F EOT. The PCM measures it in Celsius.

Works great and since it has gone in, I haven't had a single issue with clogging oil coolers or blown EGR coolers. Since I tow a heavy toy hauler here in the desert of Arizona, I was going through them about once a summer. Most of my buddy's have had similar experiences towing their toy haulers and blowing oil/EGR coolers. It's a very comforting feeling knowing that I don't have to deal with those issues any more.
