2005 F250 Major Update

This is my first diesel truck and I am definitely happy with it. Pulls everything I've tried without a problem and very smoothly as well. I guess the only problem was I didn't do enough research when I bought it to discover all the 6.0 problems or maybe I could have prevented this problem. Diagnosed the wrench light to a clogged oil cooler with ECT 194 and EOT 220 so figured I should just cry once and get some other stuff done at the same time. I don't like bringing my truck in to a shop and couldn't afford the dealer anyway so I am hoping I can do all this myself. I've spent quite a few hours reading up on replacing the cooler and I think I can get it done, it's just going to take some time. I put together a list of everything I plan to get done and was hoping you guy could go over it to make sure I'm not missing anything. It's attached as a Excel file so if you can't open it I'll try to make it as a forum post instead.
Here is what I plan to do, in order.

Coolant Flush
Install DieselSite Coolant Filter
Replace Oil Cooler
Clean Turbo
Replace Fuel Pressure Spring
Re-route CCV
Change Transfer Case Fluid
Change Transmission Fluid
Change various filters that I never got around to.

Looking at that list again it looks like I at least have it going from hard to easy . Thank you to anyone that helps!

Might also look into a coolant filter. I think you will be suprised at reeley how user freindly the 6.0 is for working on. Something that will make your life easier is a top creeper. Got mine from SEARS and was well worth the cash

If your going to have the turbo off, then you might want to investigate and maybe have ready the updated HPO STC fitting

The coolant filter is on the parts list, forgot to put it in the post. Will look into the HPO STC fitting.

How about an EGR delete too if your state doesnt have diesel emissions

I had thought about doing an EGR delete. If what I read was correct I'd have to run tunes to get rid of the CEL messages. I don't want to start messing with that. Only reason I would, would be to gain a few MPG's but from what I've read it doesn't do much/isn't worth the cost. I have plenty of power and get 16-17MPG highway, 10-11 towing so I am not sure how much better that could get. While I don't plan on selling my truck for quite a while, I'd rather not screw the next guy by having it deleted.

Was hoping I didn't have to replace it. If I do I would go back to OEM, I can't afford the BPD cooler.

Keep in mind... I have seen several members tell their tales of replacing an oil cooler only to have it clog again a short time later, and continued to go through that pain 2 & 3 times right in a row. At, what, about 400-500 bucks a pop plus your time and labor, hind site might say, shoulda just bulletproofed and forgot about it. I'm not trying to sell you something, but as a buyer of their product, it was and still is so worth the money for peace of mind. But what it comes down to is... Your truck, your budget, your choice, and I hope it works out for you
