EGR delete - whats needed

Own an 04' 6.0L and what to know what gaskets or any misc. items. I've been told the intake gaskets are reusable, is that true?

Buying the turbo drain o-rings.

Buying the updated turbo drain tube.

not buying intake gaskets.

What do I need to do to my oil cooler while I am in there?

Anything else that needs to be addressed while having the intake manifold off?

Thanks for the help.

I'm in the middle of doing an EGR delete on my 04. I picked up new intake manifold gaskets just to be safe and also got an oil cooler rebuild kit off of Ebay and the updated oil cooler drain tube. That's everything I am addressing.

Make sure you have a good tool set and several socket extensions to get the up pipe bolts off, that thing is a *****. I'm sure it won't be fun putting the new one on either.

I cleaned my turbo since I had it off, I was surprised how much crap had built up on the vanes and ring in only 70K. I'm sure there are a lot of guys here who can do this project pretty quickly but since my truck isn't a daily driver I'm taking my time on it.

how much was the oil cooler rebuild kit?

Do you think an impact would be a good idea on those up-pipe bolts?

I didn't need an impact wrench. I sprayed them with some PB Blaster and they broke free. Whats hard is since it's a bolt/nut you have to hold both ends so it doesn't spin while you try to unscrew it.

I found the oil cooler rebuild kit for $200. Part #3C3Z6A642CA There are a few on Ebay now.

the uppipes are a pita to get at and get off. especially the y pipe off the turbo. the flange likes to hang on real tight.

spray some pb blaster if you can reach it like a day before and you shouldnt have too much of a problem.

if you take the passenger side wheel well out it gives you tons of room back there. I used an impact with alot of extensions and was able to get it out. it helps having someone up top holding the bolt was spinning

The oil cooler rebuild is very easy and the kit should come with instructions. You simply sway the new cooler and o-rings into the top/cover of the old one.
