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".
