You can look at the instructions to change the egr cooler on Sinister Diesel's website.

yes you can do it in your driveway. not too terribly hard. Ford makes a oil cooler rebuild kit which is what we do at the dealership I work at. You replace the reservoir and all gaskets/seals. Saves a little money that way. Not too many tricks I dont think. I usually take the degas bottle and put a bungee cord around it and the hood to keep from having to take the hoses off. if you got all your tools handy, you can have it off and back together in about 4 hours.

It's easy. Get a nice set of 3/8 drive torx drivers. Be very clean and don't use those red rags to wipe oil upin the valley. Take pictures or make a diagram of what type of intake manifold bolts go where to make it easier to reassemble. Follow all of the torque specs. Replace your STC fitting if not done already along with the updated turbo drain. Also go ahead and buy a new IPR screen which is the screen under the oil cooler. Replacing the oil cooler is a great time to do other normal things to your engine. Also including reconditioning the turbo.

Which delete kit is the best to get. I was talking to my shop about the bulletproof delete with oil cooler and he says the stock oil cooler on the '06 if fine. Any thoughts?

The stock oil coolers are fine when they are working and not plugged up.
