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.
