IPR External Oil Cooler Kit for Ford 6.0 PIPR's external oil cooler kit is now available! The benefits of using this kit will allow the coolant to be filtered at 100% duty cycle with IPR's High Flow Coolant Filter which uses a serviceable stainless steel filter element. The optional coolant filter in this kit is not a bypass filter like most other "coolant filter kits" on the market where they are designed as a bypass filtration that filters only 10-15% of the coolant. IPR's coolant filter is designed to filter out 100% of the coolant "before" it enters the externally mounted oil cooler. The base kit does not include a coolant filter. IPR highly recommends ordering your kit with the optional HIgh Flow Coolant Filter. The additional benefits of an externally mounted oil cooler is that the oil cooler is allowed to work more efficiently and can be plumbed to run 2 oil coolers for additional cooling efficiency. The OEM internally mounted design inhibits more heat when mounted inside the engine block bathed in hot oil.

IPR's external mount design will save you thousands of dollars in labor if a oil cooler is to ever fail again by allowing the technician to replace oil coolers in less than 20 minutes. An average labor cost to replace a OEM oil cooler can cost upwards of $600-$900 plus the cost of an new oil cooler $350. This kit will pay for itself if you have 1 oil cooler failure. This kit retails for $1149 and includes a new OEM oil cooler.
The coolant filter is capable of filtering sand and oil trapped during the first 500 miles, these photo's were taken after the coolant was flushed about 10 times to remove the oil that was in the coolant when our test truck's OEM oil cooler failed. Based on this particular test we learned that regardless of how many times you flush your coolant prior to installing a new oil cooler, the new oil cooler will just end up plugged up the first 500 miles if a coolant filter is not installed.
We ran another truck with a brand new oil cooler without the coolant filter, that oil cooler is now junk. The oil temps are 18 degrees higher than the coolant temp. The new oil cooler plugged up less than 1500 miles on it.
 
Upgrade and Options
 
 
Stainless Steel Braided Hose
Stainless steel braided hose is much more durable than our standard hydraulic hose. The stainless steel hose's upgrade features AN fittings and an inner Teflon liner that can be disassembled and reused. The Teflon inner liner is capable of 400 degrees continous operation.This is a great option if you want to make custom lengths for your application by simply purchasing longer hoses. Stainless steel braided hose also makes your engine bay stand out and give it the custom look with exntended durability over rubber hoses.
 
High Flow Coolant Filter or CF2 Coolant Filter
IPR highly recommends upgrading to our High Flow Coolant Filter  or CF2 Coolant Filter. Both coolant filter has the capability to filter 100% of the coolant before it enters your exteranlly mounted oil cooler. Both coolant Filter features a serviceable stainless steel filter element, a neodymium magnet which attracts microscopic metallic particles such as rust from cast iron fallout from the engine block.
The CF2 is our latest coolant filter design which features built in Tri-Directional valve. The 3 way valve allows the user to shut off coolant flow to service the filter or turn it to bypass mode
 
Extra Filters
IPR makes servicing your oil filter easy. Filter kits include orings proprietory to IPR's External Oil Cooler kit. Save on shipping fees by ordering extra filters.
Filters can also be purchased through your local auto parts store however the orings required will not be included.

Benefits and FAQ regarding IPR's External Oil Cooler Kit

IPR solved 2 major problems with the Ford 6.0 oil cooler failure issues. First, by removing the internally mounted OEM oil cooler and relocating it next to the battery we were able to reduce the amount of time/labor it would normally take to service the oil cooler. You can swap out a brand new oil cooler in as little as 20 minutes should you need to replace it for any reason. Second, by mounting the OEM oil cooler externally we were able to filter the coolant 100% before any coolant ever enters the oil cooler.

Q. What happens to the OEM oil cooler that was mounted inside the engine?

A. The OEM oil cooler is replaced by IPR's patent pending bypass manifold. The bypass manifold is a bolt in replacement that has 3/4" passages that allow the coolant and oil to continue it's OEM design pathways and is then routed out to IPR's billet aluminum oil filter cap, out to the oil cooler and back in to supply the high pressure oil pump.

Q. Where is the oil filter located?

A. The oil filter is located in the factory oil filter housing just like the OEM oil filter.

Q. Where can I buy oil filter if I need to service my truck?

A. Oil filters can be purchased from IPR through our website or you can purchase them at any NAPA auto parts or local auto parts store. They are over the counter common filters manufactured by WIX.

Q. Do I have to remove the oil hoses off the filter cap everytime I change my oil filter? Seems like a hassle.

A. The 2 oil hoses do need to be removed to replace the oil filter, however it's a small inconvenience, in most cases you can loosen the 2 oil hoses in less than 1 minute. It's a small inconvenience once every oil change interval.

Q. Why do I have to purchase the IPR External Oil Cooler Kit when I can just install a coolant filter in my truck with a OEM oil cooler mounted internally inside the engine.

A. Unfortunately the design of the OEM internally mounted oil coolers gets clogged up by contaminants such chemical breakdown, cast iron corrosion fallout and casting sand from engine maufacturing and the coolant supply for the OEM oil cooler is fed directly from the engine block into the oil cooler. There is no way to intercept the coolant "before" it enters the OEM internally mounted oil cooler. All aftermarket coolant filters only filter coolant after contaminants have passed through your OEM oil cooler.

Q. The External Oil Cooler Kit is expensive it's out of my budget.

A. Considering a new OEM internally mounted oil cooler cost about $350-$410, intake gasket kit $90 and labor to remove/install a new oil cooler can cost from $700-$900. The next time you need to replace your clogged oil cooler the kit will pay for iteself and more.

Q. Why do I have to purchase the IPR External Oil Cooler Kit when I can just install a coolant filter in my truck with a OEM oil cooler mounted internally inside the engine and flush out the coolant system?

A. Unfortunately the design of the OEM internally mounted oil coolers gets clogged up by contaminants such chemical breakdown, cast iron corrosion fallout and casting sand from engine maufacturing and the coolant supply for the OEM oil cooler is fed directly from the engine block into the oil cooler. There is no way to intercept the coolant "before" it enters the OEM internally mounted oil cooler. All aftermarket coolant filters only filter coolant after contaminants have passed through your OEM oil cooler. In cases where a OEM oil cooler has ruptured where coolant and oil has mixed into the coolant system it is extremely difficult to flush out all the oil residue, unfortunately a new OEM oil cooler must be installed in order to flush out the mess, this will lead to contamination of the brand new oil cooler that was just installed.

Q. I see that IPR offers a High Flow Coolant Filter, is this filter included in the kit?

A. The IPR High Flow Coolant Filter is an upgraded filter you can purchase as an upgrade option with your IPR External Oil Cooler Kit. IPR does recommend upgrading to the high flow coolant filter for maximum longetivity. When puchasing the IPR HIgh Flow Coolant Filter with the Externally oil cooler kit there is a discount of $50 that is applied to the order. The retail cost of the IPR high flow coolant filter is $249, if purchased with the external oil cooler kit the upgrade is only $200.

Q. Will I have to purchase any other components to make this kit work in different climates?

A. No additional components will need to be purchased. Other aftermarket kits in the market require you to purchase a thermostat kit that can cost up to $350 for cold climate use and a possibilty that you'll need to replace your transmission cooler due to fitment issues that you may experience based on the build date and equipment on your truck. IPR require no additional parts to make the oil cooler kit operate properly.

Q. What is the advantage of IPR External Oil Cooler Kit in comparison with a air cooled type kit mounted in front of the truck?

A. There are many reasons why a water cooled system is much more effective. We will go into detail on this subject.

1. Air cooled oil cooler cores require a substantial amount of space in front of a vehicle for it to work efficiently. In most cases an air cooled oil cooler will restrict air flow to your radiator, AC condensor and radiator. Some manufacturers recommend that their oil cooler cores be mounted behind the AC condenser. The large air cooled oil cooler restricts enough air flow to the condensor that it will  diminish AC performance as well as radiator and intercooler performance. Mounting the air cooler behind the AC condensor also requires the use of additional bracketry, hardware, drilling , disassembling the front end of the vehicle, relocating the transmission cooler, purchasing and relocating the power steering cooler, discharge AC, and recharge AC upon installation which will require an additional 4-8 extra labor cost which can cost well over $1000.

2. Air cooled oil coolers require air flow (increased vehicle speed) and outside air temperature to operate efficiently. In an extreme condition when a vehicle is towing a heavy load up a grade on a hot day, the vehicle speed is limited due to the icreased load from towing and climbing resulting in less air flow and hotter outside air temps. The problem is exaggerated when a heavy duty fan clutch is installed which will cause parasitic power loss and increased load on the engine also resulting in decreased fuel economy.

Water cooled oil coolers rely on the OEM radiator as a heat exchanger to cool the oil down. The radiator used in the front of the vehicle is the largest heat exchanger on the vehicle which is very efficient. IPR External Oil Cooler Kits require no additional fans or components.

3. Cold weather performance with water cooled oil cooler is also more efficient during warm up. The same coolant used to cool the oil down in hot weather is also used to heat the engine oil up to normal operating temperatures much more effectively and more consistently. The OEM thermostat will remain closed to aid the coolant in reaching normal operating temps much sooner than an air cooler. During cold climates an air cooler will constantly cool oil temps as it’s trying to warm up. Some manufacturers would recommend a thermostat kit which can cost an extra $350 and more plumbing/fittings and labor to install.

4. Water cooled is the future! The new Powerstroke 6.7 utilizes coolant to control excessive temps on the transmission, oil cooler and intercooler.

Mr. Michael Chew

I ordered the IPR external oil cooler kit plus gen3 EGR delete for my 2006 F350, 6.0. When the parts arrived I was very impressed with the high quality of the parts and appearance of the parts. The install went very well. The instructions are well written and easy to follow. I took a pic of the install and sent in to Vince at IRP to show him that the install went well. After reviewing the pic, Vince had a few suggestion to improve the install further. It was very good to work with Vince. I've put 5,000 miles on the truck since the install and the temps have improved considerably. I also have piece of mind that my oil cooler will not fail!
Thanks,
Mike

Super happy with the kit. My temps stay within 7 degrees of each other with the toy hauler attached going uphill. Couldn't be happier. Thanks Vince.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
Purchased this kit a year ago along with high flow coolant filter, extreme duty EGR cooler, extreme duty hpop screen and coolant manifold. At the time, there was a lot of negative forum chatter about IPR and this kit. I thought a lot of the comments were unfair and decided to go ahead with the purchase because it seemed to be the most logical way to deal with the problems I had experienced with my 6.0 diesel (head gasket replacement, multiple oil coolers, egr cooler leaks, etc.). When my engine died a year and a half ago due to low ICP, I decided to become a diesel mechanic and fix it myself. Using the many online videos available (RIP DieselTechRon), I was able to tear it down and find the HPOP screen torn apart which I'm sure fouled up the IPR valve. Since I had it all torn apart, I decided to go ahead with the purchase of this kit and installed it myself with only backyard mechanic skills and lots of video watching. Had a minor problem with an oil leak due to misplacing an oring which was quickly solved. I have a 2006 F350 which I use for snowplowing about 25 accounts and to haul my various toys (boat, atv's and work trailer). During an average snow plowing event, it takes me about 12 hours to get every account done. I have private roads, a condo complex and residential accounts. When it is running right, the truck is a beast and I run it hard. At one account, I often have to plow uphill at a about a 15 to 20% grade or I can not get up the hill. As you can imagine, it's hard on the engine. Although I can't say what temps it ran before the installation, coolant now runs around 192 F and oil runs around 196 to 198 F once the engine warms up. Under heavy load, coolant gets as high as 196F and oil might get as high as 204F but usually between 200 to 204F. I forgot to mention that I usually have a fully loaded sander on the back when plowing. At any rate, I am more than pleased with the results. The truck has run flawlessly for the past year. It has 148,000 miles on it now and I expect to get over 300,000 or more as long as the body and frame hold up (replaced the rusted out pickup truck bed with an aluminum flat bed). Thanks IPR!

I bought this kit with the IPR Gen 3 EGR delete a few months ago after doing lots of research and comparison shopping. I was skeptical at first due entirely to a great deal of negative comments I'd found on several popular online diesel forums but went ahead anyway. Conceptually the design made the most sense to me compared to the others and the cost was much easier to take. I can't say anything negative about the other manufacturers' kits since I've not had my hands on them but I can say that the bad statements I'd read are totally unfounded. I've found the quality of materials and workmanship to be excellent and the installation took little more than the effort already required to replace the factory cooler. The results speak volumes too. Temperature deltas remain in the 4-8 degree range depending on load and road speed and with the peace of mind that comes with knowing I'll probably never have to buy another cooler thanks to the filter I couldn't be happier. Even if I did have to, it's a 15 minute job to change. Vince's pre and post sales support was fantastic as well.
