A big name shop did it all I figured they would have done that. Iím gonna call them. They said there is a 2 year warranty on the oil cooler IIRC.

Sounds like the ipr full flow coolant filter (or similar) could have done you some good. Lol

So is this a thing? Change oil cooler every 8-10k miles? I did a coolant filter when I did the bulletproofing. I can’t afford to change oil coolers every 8-10k miles. Remote oil coolers are big money. I’m not sure what to do. I already have tons of money in this truck. Runs amazing. Sounds amazing and is clean but it’s my daily and toes my race car so it needs to stay healthy. Oil coolers plugging every 6 months isn’t good.

Right, but you have a bypass coolant filter. Which doesn't actually do much. The full flow one literally goes online to the oil cooler and will stop anything and everything.

Ahh ok, is that what most are doing? You have a link of the one you speak of?

I don't think I've seen another brand.

Supposedly if you flush it well enough, it's not an issue.

There are quite a few posts about back flushing w/ hose water and compressed air (to provide agitation) as being the most effective way of getting rid of heavy contamination.
