White smoke then hydrolocked HELP

First off I'm new to the diesels. I have an 05 6.0 with 114k. Motor is pretty much stock besides AEM cold air and has a superchips programmer and straight pipe that's it performance wise. My truck is lifted on 37s it ran great very strong it would smoke the 37s no problem even when I didn't try to. Now here is my problem I started losing coolant slowly so I just kept it topped off then started blowing a puff of white smoke only when I started it up. So I started researching and from all the forums I came to the conclusion of egr cooler. So I pulled the egr it was a little damp but not bad so I cleaned it and the truck was fine for two days then went to start it and move it across the yard and it turned over for about 4 seconds and stopped. I researched again and found it was hydrolocked. Pulled the egr valve again and the intake was full of coolant. Yesterday I pulled all the glow plugs and turned it over to blow the coolant out. So now I'm going to order an egr delete but I am wondering if I need to do anything else after I install it or just put it on and drive like I said I'm new to the diesel but can't find anyone on here with my same story so if there is anything else I need jus please let me know because I want to do it right so I don't have to worry about egr problems again. Thanks

thas cause we know better! but thats alright we aren't born with knowledge, you live you learn and i would get your heads checked (pressure leak tested, decked) and get ARP head studs and a coolant filter, and switch to a phosphate/silicate free coolant like CAT EC-1

alright, my friend. your problem is not a rare occurrence to say the least.
here's what you want to do to make your 6.0l a little more reliable in a time and cost effective manner:
-egr delete
-stc solid one piece fitting
-updated stand pipes and rail plugs
-updated oil cooler kit
-sct x3 tuner (optional. but trust me. it will make the most out of that delete)

aside from the stand pipes and rail plugs (an absolute must, unless you enjoy being stranded), the rest of those items are mostly overlap, since the intake needs to come off to get to them, and you'll have the intake off to install the egr delete anyways.

also, as mentioned, coolant flush with cat ec1 replacing the gold stuff. a coolant filtration kit would also be a great idea at this time to keep that new oil cooler in good shape.

that should just about cover it. it sounds like a lot, but you'll be thankful you did it now while you were already in there. these parts fail. it's just a matter of time

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

hahaha. nothing is guaranteed, my friend. i'll say this; you'll be as close as you can be to saving yourself from blowing your headgaskets.

if it were my truck, i would do what i'd listed and be pretty comfortable with that.

X2 on oil cooler when your in there!!! Its a little more work and money but way worth it for peace of mind. I dont do EGR deletes with out an oil cooler rebuild.

Your 05 will throw a code with the egr deleted. Not sure if the superchips will block it like the SCT. But my 06 just has the check engine light on with egr deleted and no tunes. does not limp mode. Just the annoying light all the time.

i believe only 06+ will turn the light on. he'll get a soft fault for egr insuff. flow, but no light.
