And so it begins

Monday is the day it all starts but i have a few questions. Here is what i am having done starting on Monday

MTW Stage one Turbo
ARP Headstuds (cab off)
OEM Head gaskets
Resurface heads w/pressure test
Rocker cover gaskets
BBD remote oil cooler package w/ cold weather set up
BBD EGR done 3k mile ago
BBD 6ph Ficm
BBD water pump
BBD pro install pack which includes (updated turbo drain tube,oil pres switch,
HPOP pres fitting upgrade, fuel filter o-ring seal kit, Ford VGT turbo control solenoid pigtail harness, Ford fuel filters, EGR valve gasket set & Fan clutch harness saver.)
Ford updated Dummy Plugs
6.4 Banjo Bolts
Stand pipes
Blue spring fuel pres upgrade kit
4" turbo back MBPR exhaust w/ muff no cat
Rotella Syn oil

Questions:

1: Will the delta between my EOT & ECT still be critical to watch for anything over a 15 degree diff. with the BBD condenser mounted cooler?

2: Can i convert my Edge Attitude CS into just a monitor i would like to go with the the SCT F3 but love the info of my Edge

3: My bed plate seal is "SEEPING" not dripping oil. it would be another $700. bucks to have it fixed at the same time. How big of a deal is it.


4: Have an S&B cold air intake that i am thinking of taking off and going back to the stock one after hearing many people on this site say that it (stock) does a much better job of actually filtering and has about the same amount of flow.

Thanks for your input

Nope not so much.

2: Can i convert my Edge Attitude CS into just a monitor i would like to go with the the SCT F3 but love the info of my Edge

That is what I use mine for.

Gave you my inputs on the ones that I know about. As far as the filter that is up to you.

Mine seeped from (almost) day 1. I didn't want to spend the money OR have the engine removed so I left it. Almost 120k miles and it still forms the hanging drip. Doesn't fall until I am on the road.

Fixing it depends on its severity IMO.

Did you remove the tuner that goes under the hood and plug the factory harness back into the PCM and just leave the monitor plugged into the OBD port under the dash?

I just have it plugged into the OBD II port. I was already tuned when I got it.

Your delta won't matter anymore because it's not controlled by coolant. You will have to watch them individually though because you still don't want your oil temp higher than 250¤.
