BPD Oil Cooler Opinion

Just wanted to get opinions on Bulletproof Diesel's Oil Cooler Upgrade. I haven't had problems with the oil cooler yet, but I'm always interested in ways to increase engine longevity. Link to their product is below.

I don't see a real need for the BPD cooler...

The only abnormal oil temperature stories I've heard of were due to lack of cooling system maintenance, causing the cooler to clog on the water side over time.

Never really seen any ruptures from OEM or anything (even if it did--oil is pressurized higher than coolant, resulting in oil in coolant when motor on...could leak coolant into oil when motor is off in theory), nor any reported additional cooling capacity from the BD cooler.

I have never had any oil temp problems when towing my 5th wheel. In the Rockies, it would climb to like 245 and once the crest was reached and started down the other side, it quickly when back down to low 200's.

I do use 5w40 full synthetic oil as called for in the severe duty schedule.

I don't see any need for their cooler.

I appreciate the feedback. I too, use 5w40 T6 and haven't noted oil temps that really concerned me. Everything you both said makes sense to me and I'll probably find something else to spend the $ on...perhaps an oil bypass kit!

I have one that was installed by BPD at their facility in Mesa, AZ when they were testing the product right before time of release. It has been very helpful in keeping temps down and I now don't see the spikes up to 245 when towing. Instead they stay around 230 or lower. That's a win in my book!

Only $250?? Who at BPD is smoking crack...LOL....That's cheap compared to their other products. Do you have OCD to track your oil analysis??

I'm not sure if you were asking me about oil analysis or not, but here's my latest anyway.
