Hey guys I’m new here and new to the diesel. So my 6.0 powerstroke EOT is getting up to 230 normal driving and my ECT is around average 170-190. I talked to the mechanic well thats what he call himself. He said he talked to a few others and they say that the oil cooler is good which I know that is not. Its not normal to have the degrees on those two that far apart. What do you guys think??

8-10 degree Delta is normal. Anything over 15 and you'd suspect the oil cooler, but additional work is required to test head gaskets as well.

I'd recommend taking it to a competent Diesel shop. Doesn't sound like you found one.

What year model truck?

Overheating an EGR cooler can cause it to fail - especially if it is an 04.5 to 07 model year.

I would consider strongly changing to a BPD EGR cooler, or deleting it.

If you're doing an EGR Cooler, better do the oil cooler too. Hopefully your head gaskets are still good.

So I just found out that my egr has been plugged and welded on my ends. But I have a new egr, so should I keep the plugged one or install the new one?

Keep it plugged/welded.
