Talking 06 Oil Cooler and EGR Delete

Quick question. My local bulletproofdiesel.com dealer will do an EGR Delete and bulletproof Oil Cooler for around 2,900$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.....One problem..........I don't have 2,900$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.................So my plan is to delete the egr, then within' a month or two (10,000 miles) do the oil cooler. Being an 06 which has a fairly good reputation will my oil cooler last much longer or will I just have to get screwed..........Any help is great..... Should I do the oil cooler first even???? Thanks for all replies!!! Truck has 102,000 miles BTW.

What is the temperature difference between the oil and coolant after you completely reach operating temps?

The reason bismic asked your temp difference is because the oil cooler does not really need to be changed until there is a 15F or more difference between the oil temp and the coolant temp. Technically since you are doing an egr delete the temp difference becomes moot as the difference was fords way to "guess" if there was enough coolant coming out of the oil cooler to cool the egr cooler. So no egr cooler then you could technically ignore the oil cooler unless it is leaking or you are getting super high oil temps. Really, if you can do the egr delete you can also do the oil cooler replacement. It is not that hard, just tedious. There are tons of videos on utube. Give them a look and see if you want to jump in. Most owners just do the oil cooler and delete themselves. The hard part is getting the turbo out and changing the up pipe because the bolts are not captured. You have to put a wrench on the top and bottom of the bolt. And they are not easily accessible, although in my case i welded the bolts to the new up pipe before installing it. So getting out the old one took two hours, putting in the new one took 20min (the long bolts go on the sliding flange which bolts to the manifold)...

The truck has ran normal and great. I did lose the turbo a month or so ago due to an oil tube blowing up inside it. temps all seem normal and not a leak. I will go ahead and buy a therometer and test the temps before I do anything......sounds like a great and easy test.

My price was 2500 here in Colorado for the Bulletproof egr and oil cooler and an extra 400-600 roughly for the delete and oil cooler since you have to add the sct tuner price.. I'd much rather do the delete so I don't have to deal with the soot on the egr valve and maybe get that extra 2 mpg.

Its kinda a double edge sword, Since your gonna be in there you could just change out the oil cooler as preventive maintenance, But if you get the Bulletproof oil cooler, You will have to go back in there to remove the oil cooler and replace the top plate with the Bulletproof part. I run a Bulletproof EGR Cooler with the EGR valve "deactivated" (they put a value in that it will never reach so it doesnt open & close.) When your in there make sure you clean out your intake as it will have a nice coating of soot inside, Best to have it hot tanked at a radiator shop. Clean all the soot off the sensors on the intake, The biggest pain was, as previously mentioned, Seized turbo bolts & getting all that exhaust plumbing back in correctly. It does make it easier to install if you deleted the EGR cooler though. If you do a delete make sure you run a tuner that will allow you to "delete" the egr valve so u dont get a code.

If you do it yourself (and you should try) get a new set of turbo bolts from ebay or your local ford dealer. It comes with the oil line gaskets/o-rings. I would also invest the $300 in a set of digital gauges. I prefer the Edge Insight, it plugs into the OBD2 port and tells you everything except for oil pressure, egt and fuel pressure. It is a great way to monitor voltages, temperatures and so on plus will let you read codes and clear codes... I made it a point to spray PB Blaster on all bolts before trying to remove them and not a single one was stuck. They all came out w/o issues. Great stuff!! Walmart sells it.
