You can about $35.00 but then I am a die hard OEM man when it comes to the 6.0 if its not Ford or International I wont put it on. But thats just me.

Go buy a foot of 3/4" I.d. black heater hose and two new hose clamps and swap them out. It is only like $3/ft and if it leaks or tears again you still have 9 more inches of hose to make future repairs if necessary. Mine kept leaking and this is what I did.

I'm thinking that's a 3/4" ID silicon based heater hose, that even the factory uses. Much more durable and heat tolerant than a basic heater hose found at any auto parts store. Any heavy truck parts place, or dealer should have it in stock. Look for the Goodyear Hi-Miler brand, and pick up a couple stainless liner clamps. They have the smooth liner, with no ridges to dig into the hose which damages it. That Goodyear Hi-Miler stuff....it will never wear out. We have trucks in our fleet at work with over 750,000 miles on the hose, still even looks good after a steam clean.

You can tell me that all you want, but I have replaced that blue hose 3 times since I have owned this truck and the third time I used the black heater hose with regular hose clamps and so far I have over 4000 miles on it and nothing wrong with it. Also heater hose is heater hose it has coolant that flows through it doesn't matter if it's high dollar hose or cheap autoparts heater hose it will get the job done for a lot less money. Oh and by the way your stainless backed hose clamps are what cut into the other hoses and caused them to leak.

Well.....okay then. Just keep in mind that not all blue heater hose is silicon. FYI, regular rubber heater hose and diesel do not mix. Get a bit on it from changing fuel filters, and it starts degrading. Also, any hose clamp put on too tight will damage a hose. Installed properly, the good silicon stuff will outlast the oil cooler. And, you can even splash it with diesel weekly and it won't mind

those coolant passages were designed for the oe part using o rings to seal. i'd just use the oe part. it's only 35$. but that's just my opinion

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least

What part of an egr delete is OEM? None, other than the nipple where the hose connects to the oil cooler housing. Also if you get diesel on that hose by swapping a fuel filter you probably shouldn't be working on these. Do what you want. Spend more money than you need too but I have had to change that chitty blue hose 3 times and I said to hell with it this is cheaper and faster in a bind and works just as well.
