Returned the sinister oil cooler and got an OEM oil cooler

I ordered a sinister diesel oil cooler a while back and returned it and used the cash to buy an oem one which just arrived. It looks a little beat up vs the sinister. I’ll include pictures of the sinister one and the ford one

I'd say you made the right choice, although your parts house is a little rough on things.

Just my opinion, but if you are going with a OEM style oil cooler then it needs to be the updated OEM. I haven't necessarily heard anything bad about the Sinister cooler but I haven't heard any good either. There's a reason the guys that know these trucks best tell you to go OEM or do a relocate kit like the BPD.

Just make sure the cooling system is free of the BS that clogged the first one before you install that new cooler.

Even with doing a million flushes on mine (including some Restore and Restore+ flushes) I *still* have **** get picked-up by my IPR Coolant Filter (before it got to the cooler).

stock oem cooler the non updated one went away years ago the sinister one tried to update by making the passages bigger as a result it doesnt cool properly. yet another engineering fail by blue parts inc
as was said if you can a relocate kit will make you life easier down the road...
and do your flushes on the old cooler before putting in the new one
also the ipr filter makes back flushing easier
