Mark the case were you separate it as well as an index mark on the clamp that holds it together. This is also a great time to spend $60 and update the STC fitting on the HPOP. That will give you some cheap peace of mind. Up dating the STC should only add about an hour to the total job. Chances are the factory STC fitting will blow apart at some point and it will leave you walking home when it does.

Here is a link to the work I did on my 05.


No longer a 6.0 virgin. New STC, Cleaned turbo, welded EGR cooler closed. PIC's

Yeah I got a solution kit to replace my oil cooler cause my truck was pouring white smoke which I was told ment water in the exhaust cause all my coolant would vanish... I also got a sinister egr delete I live in a small town in Oregon and they dont check emissions so I don't have to worry bout that... Just haven trouble working on the truck not have a shop to pull or lift the cab so I have to make my hands think small its been quite a pain but im taken my time cause im new to diesel mechanics.. its good to have friends hahaha thanks for your help guys any tips or tricks to maken things go a little smoother????

when you mark the turbo clamp make sure you make a mark for the direction of the clamp also. This is so if by chance the turbo leaks a little after reassembly the clamp can be loosened and retightened on the truck.

If you are doing an oil cooler then the intake will have to come off. Best thing I've found is to take the FICM harness all the way out of the vehicle while being very careful not to damage the injector connectors poking out of the cylinder heads. With the intake and EGR cooler out of the way the high pressure pump cover will come right off with little effort. Just take out the two 8mm heat shield bolts attached to the rear of the cover

As for the oil cooler, meticulously clean the engine valley around the cooler cover so as not to get any dirt and debri down into the high pressure pump reservoir. You cannot get anything down in there or you risk damaging the IPR. It helps to have a suction gun of some sort to remove the oil under the cooler and clean anything out before pulling the old cooler screen.

Make sure to pour about a qt of oil back in the valley. Don't freak out if it is a real bear to get started and then runs like crap after it finaly does start. It can take 1/4 tank of fuel some times. I let mine run on high idel for about 30 min in the drive and it was fine. You will have to get the air out of the HP oil system and it can take some doing. Best to remove the FICM relay and crank untill you get ICP over 500 PSI.

Do Not forget to refill the valley with a qt of oil to prime the HPOP. You MUST keep that area under and around the oil cooler super clean, not even lint can be left inside. At 3000 psi of ICP pressure ANYTHING left inside will damage your IPR screen and valve. This is the most comon cause of complications after this type of repair.

Make sure the turbo is 100% lined up before you tighten the clamps to the pipes. These clamps WILL NOT pull it into alignment. If you don't get it right befor the clamps are put on it will leak ans you will have to do it over.

GOOD LUCK , post pics for us....
