Anyone done EGR delete, Oil Cooler, Bulletproof

Guys,

Reality is setting in and my EOT's are growing daily. I did a complete coolant flush this past Sunday. I used some Restore Plus and put a aux coolant filter on the truck. I picked up about 10 degrees on the EOT but am still seeing 225-235 temps.

I talked to the guys at Swamps and they want to do a EGR delete and a OEM oil cooler. I have emailed Beans and am awaiting a response.

My local shop here in Chattanooga went straight for the Bulletproof EGR cooler and Oil cooler.

I am trying to do a cost/benefit analysis here. To go the Bulletproof route looks like about a $1500 additional cost. I am OK with the expense if this truly will end my EOT problems and get this truck to where I can leave and haul to a race without worrying.

Also what else should I have done while they are in there?

Also any advice on pros and cons with Beans and Swamps?

Thanks

Do the BPD oil cooler. You will no longer worry about your ECT vs. the EOT ever again.
It is an awesome piece and you will not be disappointed.
I looked at the decision to buy it this way. If I was to pay someone to replace my oil/egr coolers this time, and have them fail again, I would have been able to pay for the BPD system.
I do my own work, but looked at it that way for a comparative analysis.

Thanks for the input. The $1500 difference is the cost of one more round of failed oem oil cooler and at my rate it is was only 50,000 miles on the last one.

As far as the "while your in there" parts...unless you have these already:
Updated fuel pressure regulator spring (safely raises it to 70psi or so) part # 6E7Z-9C165-B
Updated turbo oil supply line (no longer has the flex joint) (lost the pat number, sorry)

I'm looking at the same thing on mine. Tagging this for future reference.

Do you have head studs? I'm going to do that while I have mine tore apart, if I decide to do this.

Great advice and that's the way that I looked at it as well.
