CTS Readout!

Okay guys, I went for about an hour ride down 95 to Bass Pro Shops in Richmond and was watching my Edge CTS. I know from reading threads on here that my numbers are bad. I still don't really know what these mean. I don't know what Deltas mean. Maybe y'all can explain what everything means on these 6.0's. If I'm not mistaken, I need a new EGR cooler? I'd like to hear everybody's opinion... Here's my #'s... Sorry so blurry, trying to drive @ 75mph and snap a pic.

Like you said your numbers are a bit high but keep in mind the baseline is on a flat road at 65 mph. Change that and it may change the numbers you are seeing. My understanding is that when your numbers are past 15 degrees its your oil cooler that may need attention, not the EGR cooler.

Read this for the numbers that you should be watching: Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.

PS: I like imgur.com for picture hosting, its free and easy to use.

Thanks for the tip with imgur, it's a lot better than photobucket. As far as the truck goes, it was flat land, but about 10 mph faster. maybe I'll take another trip Saturday and go 65 mph, then read them. It'll give me a reason to go back to Bass Pro Shops...

Its your oil cooler. Coolant cant get past the cooler to cool off the oil. Deltas are the difference between the eot and ect. I have been down the oil cooler road many times. Egr may be on its way out, oil coolers and egr's go hand in hand. I would look into this sooner rather than later. I personally would go with either the BPD set up or the IPR kit. I personally went through 4 oil coolers before i bit the bullet for the bullett proof diesel kit, worth every penny. I see you have new orleans as one of your locations. Im here too. If i can be of any help just give me a shout

All the above just to haul the 900hp street mustang

Yeah, I was born and raised in Metairie. I just moved out to Virginia as of the 1st of the year. I'm really considering doing a complete bullet proof job to her. Studs, Head gaskets, EGR delete, Oil cooler... Is there anything else I should do while it's open? I'm probably not going to do this myself and I hope whoever does it will put the delete on it. I appreciate the help offer, and I'd probably take you up on it if I were back home...

Good looking coupe. If i were you and i planned on keeping the truck doing it all at once would be the way to go especially if you ate paying for it. Do studs, stc fitting on hpop, updated stand pipes and dummy plugs, icp screen, updated turbo oil feed and drain lines and a bullet proof oil cooler. Sounds like alot, and it is, but this does everything but guarantee reliability. Replaces all weak links in a 6.0 and gives a great foundation for anything in the future.
On a side note: not sure how we missed each other down here. Ive been in metairie for 6 years and grew up in lakeview. Small world

Yeah, I'm going to have to get it all done at the same time so I'm not spending double on labor... It sucks that I'm too scared to try and tackle this myself... I have a few guys I know who live in Lakeview and I was at the lakefront every weekend from about 1997 till about 2002, lol. Always out there with my Mustang talking smack then racing on Wisnor and then coming back and park, just to talk more smack... Then heading out to New Orleans East on Hayne Ave race a bit then head to "The Parish" to race on Paris Rd. Those were the days... It is a very small world. I met a guy out here at a car show, and we were talking about where we moved from and come to find out, he use to live in Kenner, about 15 mins away from my house in Old Metairie... I couldn't tell you how many Saints fans are out here in VA also, but I've been getting sh!t this whole season because this is Redskins country and they whooped us!
