EGR Leaking Coolant Flush ???'s Help !

I have a 2006 SRW F350 6,0 Powerstroke with 109km's and a leaking egr cooler.
Have ordered a delete, SCT tuner with tunes and check engine light from Elite Diesel. I'll be purchasing a Insight or Scangauge2 in th enear future.
I'm pretty confident with the repair but I'm worried about the coolant flush, I'll be replacing the oil cooler and adding the EGR delete the same time.
I dont want to hydro lock the engine.
What is the best method to flush the cooling system with a leaking EGR..
Can I unplug the power the the valve and high idle it with no boost for the flush?
Any info would be a lot of help..
Thank you..

Sound like your on the right track. Don't forget to clean the turbo. All that water it is eating is going to cause it to start sticking pretty soon. CHECK OUT THE LINK , GOOD LUCK!!

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

Yes, but... Verify that the EGR valve is clean and fully closed before reinstallation. The valve won't be forced open at high idle, so this should be a heck of alot safer than driving the truck for the flushes.
