BulletProof Diesel Full Oil Cooler Install and Review

*Disclaimer*
I installed this kit and a single turbo kit at the same time. My instructions and order of tasks was a little altered, so I can't speak a whole lot to the accuracy of the instruction manual.

To do this job in it's entirety, I would recommend setting aside a full weekend. Though it wasn't particularly difficult, getting at some of the components cab-on can be time consuming.

The overall concept of the kit, hose routing, bracketry, and components are excellent. One small detail of that is a little tricky. The kit is designed to use the OEM oil cooler brackets to secure the oil lines to the cooler. My cooler and brackets seem to have disappeared, so it took a little extra effort to ensure the oil pressure line did not contact any body mounted accessories. Failure to route this hose away from body parts WILL leave you with a loud in cab whine. Ask how I know.

The kit includes a top plate that bolts to a new OEM oil cooler. As the oil cooler remains the same, there is no gain in efficiency over stock. What you do gain is a better oil filter with no bypass, and an easily serviceable oil cooler should it ever plug again.

Andrew at BPD has been awesome to work with, and has answered all of my questions and issues. All in all, I would recommend this kit to anyone in need of a new cooler. Is it worth doing if you're not seeing delta issues? Probably not.

Temps are basically the same. It's an OEM cooler in a different location. It does add some coolant and oil capacity (about 3qts of oil to fill new filter, cooler, and hoses), and eliminates the filter bypass. My only complaint so far is that you can hear the oil pump pulse at certain temps and rpms as a slight whine. Nothing too crazy, just enough to note.

The oil pump pulse is a common complaint with the BPD kits. Its because of the lines and contact with the body. The 6.0s do it to.

I also just finished this kit on mine. Still waiting for approval to post pics and info. I went all flat rate on mine and did the install in about 4hrs cab on.

There's no contact with any body parts here, I added a 45* at the cooler to help clear the degas bottle also. Been discussing with Andrew. It's down to a minimum at a couple areas in the rpm range, I think I'm hearing resonance from the hose itself. Either way, it isn't bad at all.

Well the cooler is mounted to the master directly and yes I know it has the 3 rubber isolators, but the pulsation is transferred through from there. Ask him about the 6.0's and he will tell you the same issue with them. Its just something you have to live with. Done plenty of the 6.0 kits and only about 10% of the customers even notice it.

Seems I'm always one of those 10%! I had the same issue on a couple other cars I've had and was able to isolate it out. I'll play with it some more when I have time. Right now I'm just glad my oil is below 230*.

The first step is admitting it.
