Oil cooler swap San Antonio?

Anyone in the San Antonio area know how to do an oil cooler swap on a 2006 F350 6.0L? Want to make a few bucks? It is beyond my skill level I think... PM me if interested.

@junior125 or a bit further away @Kryptic_361

Or watch a DTR video and do it yourself. Not that hard to do.

Skip the EGR cooler part and this one covers it pretty well. The one I referred to when I did mine.

Watched video and doubt I have the skills to do it myself. Too much stuff..... would prefer to give someone a fair price to do the install. I had one shop tell me they wanted $135 and hour and it would take NINE hours. Seriously?

Could be a good deal there. Knowing your limits is important. Exceeding those limits can cost you much more than nine shop hours. Nowadays, I will stop at a certain point of frustration, button it up, and bring it to a shop to finish. I just hope if you find someone, they would stand by there work as much as a shop would. My oil cooler swap took days and required quite a bit of money to tool up.

If you got a full quote from the shop, It'd be interesting. I think it'd be at least $1300 for the oil cooler alone. Then there's the while you're in there parts: BPD EGR or delete ($450), IPR and Manifold Adapter ($300), Stand Pipes, Dummy Plugs, STC fittings, the list goes on and on such as deck the heads, studding, could be never ending.

The Ford OEM oil cooler shouldn't be more than $300 ($450 at full price).

Cooler took me 11-12 hours but I’m anal and cleaned all interior and exterior surfaces of all parts and covers that I removed. I also added a coolant filter at the same time.

A local shop that works on diesels quoted $1300 for parts/labor.

The cooler itself isn't too bad. There is an OEM on eBay for $300 with gasket kit.

I have seen aftermarket for a lot less from some of online diesel sellers but prefer OEM. $300 for the one above. Again, I looked at the video and have no desire to try the job.

DO NOT BUY AN AFTERMARKET OIL COOLER! Unless it's BPD's air/oil cooler.
The cheap ones will cause high deltas right out of the box and the gaskets are junk and will cause problems.
If you want to make sure it's genuine OEM give Mike a shout at Autonation Ford WBL, he'll have just as good a price as fleabay. @fordsvtparts

Anybody that has experience doing the coil cooler swap in the San Antonio area... make some money? Had another mechanic tell me it was a CAB OFF job only. Geesh.
