coolant flush/new oil cooler ?

ok guys hopefully tomorrow can start on wife's 05, got arps, stand pipes, dummy plugs, egr delete, new oil cooler, stc fitting and so one. question is, i just did a coolant flush about 3 months ago, do i need to do another one when i get everything installed or what? just worried once i install everything dont want to clog the new cooler. thanks

I wouldn't do it once the new stuff is installed but before. Hope you've been filtering things too.

^^^AGREE dont flush with the new equipment installed. You wanna protect that cooler.
Keep us posted how the job goes. I was suprised how much krap was stuffed in there but when all was said and done was suprised how easily it went.

do the flush before new parts FORD MESSED UP BIG TIME... when I was brandnew to 6.0's i did the elc swap and killed my oil cooler in like 3 days afterwards haha.

just use the vc-9 stuff I think the warning says dont leave it in for more then 3 hrs because its a strong acid.

I think it would be fine to use garden hose water for the first 2-3 flushes as well to save money then do 2-3 flushes with straight up destilled water. My flush takes most of the day but im tired of oil coolers lol.

reg water and vc-9 I believe 2 qrts flush

----------------- I watched a video when one man put a garden hose in the degas bottle and let is start overflowing from degas with all the drains opened and WOT for like 2 seconds and let the water pump force all the junk out. he only did it couple times and let the water start overflowing from degas again before he WOT. I might try this next time. I gotta do studs and oil cooler this weekend.

Just to clear up, you add 100% Cat EC-1 coolant to your distilled water, and top off with distilled water.
