BPD oil cooler remote mount manifold..whos used them?

Im looking at getting the bulletproof diesel remote mount oil cooler manifold so I can use my choice of an oil to air cooler,my question is they offer one type of manifold that uses factory ford oil filter, and the other(which is 200 dollars more) allows you to plumb in your own manifold somewhere and use a spin on type of your choice or another cartridge style. Is ford factory filtration better than something you could build aftermarket? I change my oil more frequently than I should to begin with so Im thinking to just get the manifold outfitted to use factory filter,Ive never had problems with them. Excited to do this, no more 40+ degree deltas and no more worrying about cross contamination when the oil cooler decides to burst.

2005 F250 CCSB Harley edition 4x4 Powerstroke
-Edge Evolution CS
-SCT X3 with custom tunes
-4 inch MBRP exhaust
-ARP headstuds
-bypass coolant filter
-EGR delete

Re: BPD oil cooler remote mount manifold..whos used them?

the OEM filter is great if all the plastic internals of the housing stay together and u use OEM or Racor filters and a cap that is up to spec
otherwise you risk bypassing unfiltered oil
so to truly Bulletproof you remove it from the system

i choose to leave it and I went with their new VK688 all inclusive oil to coolant kit

another thing is changing your filter more often than needed 5000 miles isn't really an advantage IMO
a good bypass filter would do you a much bigger filtration favor IMO

Re: BPD oil cooler remote mount manifold..whos used them?

Ive changed oil on a 6.0 with the factory setup about 30 times and have not had a problem, i cant see not using it, but if you want the best and consider that the best....

if your smart enough to inspect the housing for loose parts every time you pull the filter your way ahead of the game the bypass can still fail and then your not filtering your oil properly but a risk i was ok with

Re: BPD oil cooler remote mount manifold..whos used them?

Yeah I think Ill get the factory filtration manifold, and throw the extra 200 at a cooler. Assuming lines/fittings dont run me a crazy amount of money I should be all in at about a grand when Im done. I need to use a thermostat to keep oil from entering cooler in cold weather, I see 5* mornings frequently in the winter and my truck would never warmup even with the high idle I fear..what is a good temp for the thermostat to open..180*?

just dbl check that you want to do this as a DIY the disclaimers on the sold separately manifold deserve some attention

Yeah I read that already and thought oh boy I bet people have f***** this up before lol. Im actually a heavy duty truck technician and install remote transmission oil coolers frequently so I like to think Im pretty familiar with how the cooling systems like to be plumbed,we'll see lol.

good deal !! and since your not doing a DIY remote filter you save alot of the engineering and oil starvation chances
