BulletProofDiesel Water Pump and BEER!!!!

Ordered the bulletproof water pump today. Looks to be a really nice product. I do have to admit that I'm a little disappointed with the ordering experience. I paid a premium price for a premium product which I'm good with, however, I feel like the $25 shipping charge was ridiculous...

Wait until you get it. The packaging itself is bulletproof as well.

I hope so! I'm getting ready to do head gaskets for the second time so I'm getting all my parts together and trying to knock some other things out while I'm in there. Ordered the oil cooler relo kit from IPR along with a set of 175/30s from warren. Still going back and forth between doing it cab on or off...

Comes with the housing. I would definitely consider swapping the oil cooler relocation kit for BPD's if you can swing it. They have the ONLY solution to the oil cooler problems the 6.0 has.

And do it cab on. There is no need to do it can off if you don't have too. In cab studs is not hard to do at all. Take a look at my build thread and see how I did mine. Link is in my signature.

I've read your thread. I've also already studded the truck, I did it the first time cab off. It makes it really nice and very accessible and I have access to a lift 20 miles from me so I have to consider it...you did a great job on your thread its very helpful for those who haven't done anything like this before. As far as the oil cooler goes I could go with BPDs kit but honestly I think I like the ipr kit a little better. I like keeping it liquid cooled, it's more efficient IMO. I think having the coolant filter in line with the oil cooler should solve the plugging issues. If not its simple to replace. I just hope my heads are usable. I had them resurfaced once already....

If you have the option of doing your head gaskets with the cab off you'd be crazy not to take advantage of the opportunity. The IPR oil cooler relocation kit is a nice less expensive alternative to the BPD kit IF you also use there coolant filter and plumb it in line with the oil cooler inlet so all coolant going through the oil cooler is filtered. That solution will get you 85% of the BPD solution. It still leaves you vulnerable to cooling/oil system cross contamination if the oil cooler fails which the BPD kit eliminates completely. It is the only true solution for the oil cooler blues.
