Your numbers look fine. The test is 60MPH on flat ground you should see under a 15* delta when all is at full operating temps.

Just to put your mind at ease, I had Ford replace my coolers, I replaced gold with ELC, new thermostat, etc and my deltas are about the same as yours.

That said, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Still... 2200 is too much IMO!

AND... They put another OEM crappy egr cooler in there

Delete it or get a BPD egr cooler... only two reliaable options!
