Looking for options

So I installed an edge insight monitor on my 03 6.0(210k,all stock, straight pipe, egr valve disconnected) and so far I love the monitor. My issue is my ect and eot deltas seem to be about 20 degrees apart(ecgt 188-192 eot 210-220). I havent gone on a long drive yet( flat road, constant speed,ect.) so Im starting to thing its time for an oil cooler. I have searched the web and found a really inexpensive doorman replacement cooler($190). Anybody try one of these doorman coolers?
I have also found some of the ford coolers for $330 and up. when I replace the cooler I will do a flush before replacing the cooler and also plan on doing an egr delete (one less thing to worry about).
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Re: Looking for options

ya that sound high for sure I haven't seen mine go about 194 in months and it is always within 10 ore less of my ECGT. I would go with ford not a knock off too important of a part that can create large issues later on. just my .02. thinking of doing any other mods while you are in there?

Re: Looking for options

Stick with Motorcraft parts unless you want to do it again shortly after. If you don't have emissions, EGR delete would be wise as well since you are already right there at it replacing the cooler.

Re: Looking for options

ok, so now I have found a reasonably priced ford dealer to order my parts from( silverstate ford in las vegas). I have an oil cooler assembly, updated turbo feed line, updated oil cooler cover, new intake gaskets, new thermostat, updated turbo drain tube, turbo hardware kit(bolts, orings, paper gasket). new oil, oil filter, coolant( cat elc rated) distilled water. vc9 cooling system flush.
Is there anything else that I might need?
Any good tips for me?

Re: Looking for options

A good pad to lay across on top of the radiator/core support. Box of shop towels (going to be some oil to clean up), something to suction the oil out from under the cooler (I use a turkey baster). Sounds like you got the bulk of the parts you'll need.

Re: Looking for options

Thank you for the extras. Didnt think about the pad to lay on.
Any good tips? This will be the first time for me digging into the motor.

Re: Looking for options

Just take your time. Get yourself a piece of cardboard, poke enough holes for the intake manifold bolts, and put them in order as you take them out. That way you don't mix up the bolts and the ones that are studs. Be careful with the injector connector sticking out of the rocker box. Easy to break one putting the intake back on if you aren't watching, and the last thing you want to do is have to pull an injector and replace because you broke the connector.

I'm sure you've already read it'll take some cranking to get it to fire up after you get it back together. It'll more than likely hit when you first try to crank it, but will go dead and take some time to get the air forced through and get oil pressure back through the whole system. 20-30 second cranks with a break between. Don't be afraid to keep turning it over longer than you think you should.

I'm sure there are other little tidbits....just aren't crossing my mind right now.

Re: Looking for options

Don't know if you have it or not, but consider doing the blue spring upgrade while you're at it. Also, you may not need it, but a lot of people have found their stock mesh filters below the oil cooler (in the HPOP reservoir) torn. There is a stainless steel replacement available for cheap. I got mine for less than $9 shipped from Sunrise Ford. Also, since you're going to be doing a flush and a new cooler, I would highly suggest a bypass coolant filter! Many people have run into clogged oil coolers AFTER a flush because things sometimes continue to break free after we think it is flushed fully.

Hmmm....since you'll have the CAC pipes off, check em for oil residue and clean if necessary?

Re: Looking for options



I knew there were things I was forgetting! Coolant filter is definitely a wise idea. As is the blue spring.

Doesn't a new oil cooler come with the upgraded stainless screen?
