Replaced my oil cooler 2 summers ago with an OEM one, starting to to have some high oil temps again, which is the best aftermarket oil cooler for an not everyday driver. I try to drive my tuck once or twice a week, I do some occasional towing and hauling, live in PA so it will be in cold and hot weather, was looking at bulletproof diesel performance remote cooler.

I and some others on this forum went with BPD, their remote air-to-oil cooler in my case. The price is a bit tough to choke-down but no regrets about the decision. bismic's question above is on target.

Should be good with that, as long as you get the system cleaned out.

The only aftermarket oil cooling systems that I would consider are those from BPD. That said, my OEM oil cooler is doing quite well and has been for a lot of years. The key is to get a clean system to start with.....hard to do on old trucks that may have been allowed to drop silicates and minerals for a number of years.

I was looking at the BPD remote cooler but there was a couple to choose from and I wasn't sure if "the most expensive one" was the right option, when I got the truck it was already deleted, studded and had a sinister diesel coolant filter on it, but like a said in my original post that it isn't my daily driver so I wasn't sure if the short life span of the current cooler was caused by the lack of use. When I replaced it 2 years ago I did flush out all coolant passages with water pressure and replaced coolant.

Which BPD remote air to oil cooler did you go with? I was on their website last night and seen there was a couple options for a 04 6.0.
