Hot oil with BPD Cooler

I have a 2003 F-350 dually with 105k miles.
EGR delete
ARP head studs
BPD remote oil cooler
The oil is still wanting to float around 220-230 degrees without a load behind it. The water seems to follow it or vice verse with water running around 210. Outside temps are in the 90s.
Does the oil temp follow the water temp with this new oil cooler? From what I’ve read, the water should be in the 195 range.
I’ve changed the thermostat and the degas bottle cap. I would just like a little advice before I put anymore money into this thing!
I’m leaning towards water pump but would like as much input as possible by good folks familiar with these engines! I can provide anymore info you guys would like that might help! Appreciate at it!!

upper 90's where I'm living/driving and my temps are north off 200 ~ typically my delta runs about 7, EOT over ECT

When my ECT hits 208 the fan clutch engages and quickly pulls ECT back down to around 198, and disengages - the ECT will slowly come down as well, but not as rapidly

The only time I saw EOT of +220 was pulling a boat over a steep hill in NC. The fan engaged and did it's jobs then, too.

Typically, on a hot day in stop and go traffic, not hauling, I may see EOT reach 212 to 214, but running highway/interstate this is not typical unless I'm hammer down, 80+



When you say BPD remote oil cooler, do you mean the relocated OEM liquid to liquid cooler, or their liquid to air cooler (with or without the thermostat control)?

It is the $1800 air cooled oil cooler that uses my OEM oil filter.

I just got off the phone with Andrew at BPD. Super nice and helpful guy! He is leaning towards an air flow issue, ie. fan clutch or something restricting air flow from the grill. I was thinking water pump but he doesn’t think it is that at all.

I have a ScanGauge that monitors the FSS and it shows 300-400 usually. It will spike to 1200 when the water temp gets to 218 and bring it back to around 209. I have tried to spin the fan by hand with the engine hot and it has tension and no wobble or play. Any other way to test it?

How fast are you going empty?

There is a big difference in oil temps with dual rear wheel trucks going 55 vs 80 etc. Not saying your rodding your truck but stock gearing and stock tires its easy to see over 210 just by going fast etc. Also have you looked at the oil cooler lines, radiator, grill, ac and checked for major dust build up or dirt/debris?

Running 60 down a 2 lane highway.

Yep it’s all clean. Oil cooler has been added within the last 2 weeks.

I would continue to work with BPD then. Unless the air cooler was mounted in a weird place or you have some larger aftermarket bumper there isn't usually cooling issue. Some have reported above normal temps in stop n go situations in hot climates but generally speaking Bulletproof diesel is second to none for their oil cooler kit. Very interested to see what you and the bpd guys discover regarding the heat.

It does have a brush guard on the front. Although I couldn’t imagine it blocking enough air to make a difference. Something to look into though. I will pull it off and see if there is a difference.
