20k already ? wow
I'd have been quite angry over that. When I pay someone to work on my vehicles, they need to clear with me, what goes into it.I had a real ****ty mechanic who installed used parts, put a dorman oil cooler on and left metal needle bearings in my motor. Prior to this guy messing with my motor I had oil and coolant temps 5-10 degrees delta. He put ford gold and fords oil in my motor with out my appoval.
Didn't see any specs on it. I wouldn't use it unless it's clearly marked Cat EC-1Saw this at Walmart tonight... I don't know anything about it but it could be another option.

Yea, I wouldn't run it either but then again im not going to run SuperTech oil. Not even in my lawmower. The oil analysis on SuperTech says its good oil and lots of people use it obviously. I just saw that it specifically said it had no silicates. I agree though I will spend the extra and use what I know.

Dang, old dude here. Got my head to spinning reading the above posts. I have an 2003 with the 6.0 engine. Engine was bulletproofed, and had a full egr delete along with a lot of other mods, including the Edge CS gauge setup. This was done a few years back. At the time also put on the Sinister Diesel bypass coolant filter kit that goes to the degas bottle line. Would like to do a complete back flush now. As well as replacing hoses, belt, tstat, turbo boots, radiator cap, and coolant.
Thinking about switching from the Sinister setup to the IPR coolant filter setup. Since my engine has the egr delete would the IPR coolant filter kit work? If so, would I need the coolant housing that they have or not?
Would appreciate any tips that would help. Wife and I have just retired and getting ready to hit the road with our fifth wheel.
^^^ This or the Gen 3 with the high flow filter. You can set the filter up in the heater hose but that doesn't give you the easy access to the oil cooler like the manifold or Gen 3 delete does.You need the manifold.
All you have to do is pull the IN line off the filter and hook up a contraption like I made, gives you a straight shot through the oil cooler. Just make sure you pull the lower rad hose and open both block plugs. If you use shop air at the same time then block the other line at the filter so it doesn't give your engine bay a coolant bath. (don't ask how I know) This pic has it able to hook to the manifold, I've since put a piece of pipe in it to hook to the hose instead, much easier. also a check valve would be nice to keep the shop air from backing up the garden hose.Thanks 79jasper and SparkyF250 for the help. Since my truck had the egr delete done a few years back. Wanted to make sure that with the coolant filter kit and the with coolant manifold I would be able to back flush the oil cooler. I see on the IPR website, page 15, diagram #3 how the coolant hoses are routed. But, I am confused on how to back flush the oil cooler with the coolant filter and coolant manifold. What hose or hoses would I remove and hook up a garden hose to do the backflush? Is there pics anywhere to show how to route the hoses to do this?
