well, done everything i can think off any further advise

well here we go. I bought truck for good price then quickly figured out why. After lots of research i decided to just get after it best i could. I have had it torrn down for a month and here is what i did. tore down to short block, removed oil cooler and installed BDP remote air to oil cooler, welded exhaust side of egr cooler shut, put in ARP studs with oem gaskets, blue spring fuel pressure, and new low ressure oil pump. also cleaned surgicaly oil vally and ipr to include new screen etc.. i switched to T6 Rottella 5-40 right now i see EOT's after an hour around 180-190 and ECT's 190 +/- 5 degrees. truck running really strong just want to know if temps look good. Also i ruptured my tranny cooler so set up a remote under the bed with a fan to engauge at 170, i used a hydrolic cooler from work designed for iso 68 hydrolic fluid. It is a large cooler and should do fine but was wondering if there is any kind of back pressure requirment for tranny, or is free flowing a good thing? I know lots of questions thanks for your help!!!

Your oil temp sending unit looks off by 10-15 degrees.


The oil should always be 5-10 degrees more than the coolant once everything is fully warmed up.

If i remember correctly you dont really have to worry about the dreaded 15* delta with the BPD oil cooler because the coolant is not longer affected by the oil temp. You are probably fine ECT should be at least 190ish. If your only in the 180's when warmed up your thermostat is probably stuck open.

To post pictures, open an account at flickr or another web photo host site. Upload your pictures then use the "insert image link" and copy the image "copy link location" from the web host (click right) and paste.

You can get a free program like PIXresizer that can work with batch files (folder) to reduce the size of your photos to make for faster uploading. Most jpgs don't need to be larger than 200kb for good resolution and size.

Example: follow the link of the photo below.

You are looking good and it looks like you have done all the right things. The truck should run good for you. Look into the Archoil products. Flush the oil system good with AR2300 and then add some AR9300 or AR9100.
