Re: Oil Cooler
I am running a BPD oil cooler with the cold weather kit. The BPD kit is a well designed and well executed kit. The billet oil cooler delete block is a real thing of beauty. Everything about the kit is first rate and over built which is the way I like to do things. It is the best solution available if you want to eliminate the oem oil cooler.
However like windrunner said, if you put a fresh oem cooler in, get rid of the G05 and go with a good ELC, And clean the cooling system real well before the switch over your oem cooler will be pretty reliable. There is always a potential for it to rupture and make a mess by cross contamination of the cooling and oil systems but a good monitoring solution will tell you in advance if you are developing oil cooler problems in plenty of time to deal with it.
