I’ve installed lots of bpd kits and a few mpd kits.. I have a bpd kit on my wife’s excursion.... I highly recommend *against* and air/oil cooler by itself. The factory one works MUCH better. With their larger cooler in my wife’s truck the coolant stays around 200 when it’s 110* outside but the oil temp soars up to 235-240 EMPTY. Even when it’s 40* ambient temps I still see oil temps approx 7* higher than coolant temps.. we don’t tow with this truck. It’s got way more fuel than air and I have my truck so I couldn’t tell you temps when loaded down.
I built my own air/oil kit for my 6.7, but made it a secondary cooler instead of deleting the factory cooler. My oil temps on my 6.7 used to be 10-15* higher when empty (normal for a 6.7) and up to a 30* split when towing, (also normal) after adding another cooler, I’ve yet to see oil temps higher than my coolant temp. It usually runs 194-200 coolant and 180-190 oil temps.
Point to this is that an air to oil cooler by itself is not enough. The factory cooler simply works much better in a 6.0 application. If you want an aftermarket oil cooler, I’d run one that allows you to keep the factory cooler in the valley.
