2nd guessing bulletproofing, what to do???
So, I have been getting ready to start the bulletproofing process on my truck. So far I have bought an OEM Ford oil cooler, intake gaskets, blue spring kit, HPOP screen, turbo drain tube kit. I am waiting on those items to arrive. Today, I thoroughly researched EGR Delete Kits and Coolant Filter Kits. I was just about to purchase both kits from IPR, when I decided to continue researching a few more article. I have now begun to wonder if it is even worth the effort. I have seen so many people on here who have replaced the oil cooler, complete flush, and the whole bulletproofing, only to have the new oil cooler plug up again. Along the same lines, I have noticed a trend of people suggesting that if you dont put in a BPD Oil Cooler for 1800-$2200 depending on the kit, the OEM oil cooler will innevitably plug up again every time. I have 229,000 miles on this truck, it runs great with the exception of some apparent stiction issues until warm up (some stuttering around 55mph until it reaches operating temps, then it goes away). I added a bottle of injector cleaner from Tractor Supply, but it didnt seem to help any. Other than that, high deltas, ECT around 190 and EOT around 220 @ 70mph on flat ground in 90* weather. Thoughts?
