I agree with Curtis. Nothing much to get too worried about.
ECT/EOT delta figures are helpful for engines that utilize EGR systems but since the 7.3 has no such system, it's not really something...

Most every 4x4 that I've seen has LS diff in the rear. Is your truck 4x4? If so, then check your axle code on the door like others have suggested.

If you aren't the original owner, then it's...

You might think your xgauge is reading the coolant temp but it's not. Impossible for it to because the sensor is not connected to the PCM. Your xgauge is reading the 'calculated' engine coolant...

Based on how Blackstone tests their oil, it's not surprising they would have missed the engine damage. Unless Blackstone has changed their methods.....they do not determine the PQ Index and that...

Yes, that is about normal. The oil-coolant delta should be in the 5-10 degree range.

I like the factory system myself. Has worked quite well for me in my personal trucks as well as all our fleet trucks. The factory system has a regulator in the bowl that returns the fuel back to...

The one on the dash is as accurate as it needs to be. When these trucks are towing, the coolant temp can steadily climb and then suddenly drop when the fan clutch locks up. If you install your own...

All of the heavily modified transmissions that I've driven have shifted more firmly than stock. The firmness was more noticeable when trans fluid is cold. Depending on how the builder modified...

There is no PID for engine temp on automatic trans trucks because the PCM doesn't receive input from a sensor. Oil temp is usually pretty close....I think oil normally runs about 5-15 degrees...

Normal for automatic transmission trucks.
The PCM doesn't monitor engine temp so the value you are reading is a ghost number.

Sounds like your scanner is not designed for these trucks. As far as I know, the scanners from auto parts stores will not work on these trucks. Most of us have to use AutoEnginuity, Ford scanner...

Any smoke while cranking?
Are you sure you reassembled the IPR correctly? Is that little needle in backwards?

It's possible that is what he meant but even so.....changing the HPOP oil still won't result in a complete oil change. There is oil in the reservoir/front cover that can't be accessed with a...
