I bought my truck a few months ago, with 94k miles on it. I got lucky and found one that had already been bullet proofed.
I checked out the recepits that the previous owner gave me, and it looks like it had a BPD EGR cooler and the cheaper BPD oil cooler done sometime in 2010. It must have plugged the replaced oil cooler, because in Sept. 2011, it had the oil cooler replaced again with a stock one, and had ARP head studs and stock gaskets put in it.
It runs great now, and I've been going through and doing the regular preventative maintenance on it, monitoring it, etc.
I want to do the radiator flush with Restore and Restore +, but have read that this will often plug up the oil cooler. I do have a Diesel Site coolant filter that will be going on soon
, but I'm wondering I should just drain and refill with Zerex rather than doing the coolant flush and filling with ELC. I'd hate to have to replace the oil cooler again, and was thinking that I'd just wait until my deltas start to increase, if they ever do, and just do it then.
