Just picked up my '05 Ex yesterday

Finally found my Ex!!! Picked up an '05 Eddie Bauer with 98,000 miles on it. Can't wait to put my own 100,000 miles on it. Pics to be coming later.

My brother is letting me use his Edge CT until I can afford the CTS with backup camera. Looks like I need to clean out my EGR cooler and oil cooler or possibly get bulletproof ones after I flush out the coolant. The temps are hovering between 10 and 15 degrees apart when cruising down the highway.

Thanks for the advice. I was a little nervous buying the 6.0L but after reading a lot of the posts on here and the simple things that can be done to create a long lasting motor I couldn't wait to get my hands on the monster of all SUVs

I have a question with the blue spring update. I tried looking it up on the Ford parts web page and can't find anything on there. Does anybody have a Ford part # to make my life easier? I tried searching for it but all I found were posts about people doing the update but nothing with a part number. Thanks for any help you can give me. 2 weeks strong and loving everything about my Ex, which now has been nicknamed "the bus".
