Temperatures

Hello all, i have a 2005 F350, 90k miles. Completely stock. I recently purchased an EGR bypass, blue spring kit, oil cooler and coolant filter. Now i just need time to install them. I barely drive it and dont tow anything big, yet. Is there anything else crucial i should do besides getting a tuner and can anyone tell me what the temperature parameters should be on everything?

Do you know if the HPOP's STC fitting has been updated? How about dummy plugs and standpipes? Also, the fuel pressure regulator updated blue spring? Those should be done if you want reliability.

Coolant temp should run around 190 to 196 when cruising. Oil temp should be 6-10 degrees above coolant temp once the engine has fully warmed up. Transmission temps should be in the mid 165 degree range.

BTW - why are you installing a new oil cooler? What coolant does it have in it? Is your current oil cooler plugged?

@bismic hit on a lot of them, but with only 90k on the clock, i'd be cleaning the turbo while it's out as well. And I hope you bought either an OEM or BPD oil cooler. If not, you have been warned!

I purchased the blue spring. The other things you mentioned have not been done but i will get. Turbo got a new unison ring and was cleaned about 10K ago. The oil cooler is a black diamond. I believe the coolant is the original but not sure. I plan on doing a coolant flush before i do anything.

Good call on the coolant flush BEFORE doing the oil cooler swap, however, I would seriously reconsider installing that oil cooler, and get ahold of @fordsvtparts or @fordvolvoswap to purchase an OEM part if you're staying with the original configuration.

Definitely get an OEM oil cooler.

I would also recommend knowing what the health of the coolant system was before doing the flush. Lastly, there are many kinds of flushes. Distilled water only flush, chemical flush (two choices on chemicals), backflush.

If you post actual coolant and oil temperatures, as well as drain some coolant and inspect it (posting what you find), we can suggest the best approach.

I was planning on using restore and restore plus for the flush and backflush the heater core. I dont have a tuner yet so dont know the temps. Also i was leaning towards the amsoil coolant but not sure. You can go crazy reading all the posts on different forums about what you should and should not do on the 6.0

I agree that it can get confusing.

As far as using Restore Plus, it is a strong acid cleaner. It can possibly cause more issues than it resolves (as far as the oil cooler goes). If you don't need it, I would certainly avoid it. It can cost you 2 or 3 more oil coolers.

You don't get a tuner to read engine parameters (even tough some can). There are many devices and options for getting that data without a tuner.

Downloading a smartphone app is cheap and easy. ForScan and Torque Pro are two of the better ones. You will need an ELM327 device - either Bluetooth or WiFi depending on what smartphone you have (Android or Apple). The ForScan software is far better at reading codes than the Torque Pro.

The ScangaugeII is clunky and doesn't read codes very well at all, but it works fine for engine parameters and is relatively small.

You are heading down a path of doing things without knowing the full story. It may work out or it may not, but many people have ended up calling the 6.0L a POS after going down this path. Most of the folks in this category could have avoided much headaches.

I appreciate the advice. I will download Forscan and check temps before i do anything. I will post temps when i do. Whats your take on the amsoil coolant?

It would probably be fine, they have one that is EC-1 rated.

Be sure to get 100% coolant though. There is so much you can't get out of the cooling system that you won't ever get it up to 50% otherwise. The system holds 7 gallons. All you can drain out is about 4 gallons. Best for final few flushes to be w/ distilled water until clear and then add 3.5 gallons of 100% antifreeze. Then top off w/ distilled water.
