Thinking EGR/OIL cooler issue

I have an 05 F250 4X4 Lariat with 127,000 on it. Only mods are K&N cold air and Sugerchips Flashpaq. So far my issues are dropped mileage, had a coolant leak last week, when I get on it I'll hear a whistling coming from behind the dash (its not a turbo whistle) and the brake peddle gets spungy. Plus it does not have the power it used to. I just did a 2200 mile run up north and back. I avg 13 MPG. Used to get 18-19.
I'm thinking of upgrading the EGR/OIL cooler.
Any suggestions?

You need a monitor....Overhead computer Fix - Easy and it works
Sounds like your degass bottle is venting.....egr cooler failure, coolant bottle overfull, or blown head gaskets.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Unfortunately had to Sell my ......2004 KR CC SWB FX4 - Edge insight cts, blue spring upgrade, updated HFCM drain plug, XDP coolant filter, CAT EC-1 rated coolant, Custom Diesel EGR delete, CAT delete, Rotella T6
