Re: Oil cooler mods
Ok, I was able to open it. Two things:
1) Why do you guys insist on running a hotter T-stat, especially where we live? This would definitely solve your oil temps. There is absolutely zero gain from a hotter t-stat other than hotter heat out of your vents.
2) That's ALOT of work and extra leak points for a few degrees cooler oil when 245* oil temp isn't going to hurt anything.
I mean yeah, if ya like it, do it. Who the hell are we to say anything? But, since you shared, I guess I had some input. Nice work though. After owning 5 of these trucks and trying everything under the sun and fretting about it, I have come to the conclusion that many mods are over rated and a waste of time and money....and some will even cause you trouble down the road more so that the stock version would that we are always trying to re-engineer.
