Oil Cooler decision??
Thanks for our time!
I have a 2004 Ford 6.0. I tow heavy and often. It is strait piped, IPR filtration, deleted, clutch fan upgrade and multiple other upgrades.
My current oil cooler is good, temps are good. In Arizona in the summer at over 100 degrees with the damn mountains I'm looking for any better way to keep temps cool while towing. If I don't tow heavy or at all temps (EOT) never get over 215. With the toyhauler fully loaded l'll slow down and will keep temps not exceeding 240's. That's 40mph, but once I peak the mountain temps will go back to normal. Usually EOT temps with out the mountains towing are 205-220 depending on my speed or hills.
My question is is it worth it to upgrade right now to a Bullet Proof oil cooler. Will I see a huge difference in temps towing? I ask, cause I didn't see any post if some had a big difference in temps from good working oil cooler to Bullet Proof oil cooler while towing heavy.
