Part Combination Questions: EGR/Oil coolers and TBE

My EGR and Oil cooler are ready for replacement. Just got a 2003 F250 6.0 w/ 150k miles. The ICP sensor is leaking also.

I'm going to attempt the part installs on my own. Will a two 6-ton jackstands do the trick for lifting the front end? I only have a 3.5 ton hydraulic floor jack, will this lift the front end safely, I checked earlier and it didn't look like it will be able to lift the truck more than 4-5 inches...?

Question two: Kit combinations? I've been considering my options, and I do not have an emissions check on my diesel.

I have been looking at a complete kit from bulletproof with the oil cooler front mount kit along with an upgraded EGR. Or if I go with just an EGR delete would just getting a Ford OEM oil cooler be fine? Rephrased: Would the bullet proof oil cooler kit still be a good investment with an EGR delete? Also, will going with a GoGo EGR delete cause any interference with a Bullet oil cooler kit?

Also, while I'm in there doing this maintenance I will replace the ICP sensor. And I am also looking at either a catback exhaust or going Turbo back. If I go TBE will I need to get a tune? I have a quick car so I'm not looking for speed as much as I am reduced exhaust temps for reliability.

I just want a reliable truck! And thanks for any input!

you would be better off going with a stock replacement oil cooler rebuild, an EGR delete kit, new ICP sensor and adding a coolant filter and maybe an oil bypass. The oil cooler kit that relocates the cooler is an unproven setup. With the above combination, you will have a very solid setup that will be reliable. If you would like some prices I would be more then happy to get you some.

FWIW the Ford early style (round) EGR coolers VERY rarely fail.

6A642 for the oil cooler, and 9P456 for the EGR cooler.

I believe the ICP sensor is 9F838

Well I had it in at Ford and they said the EGR had ruptured and the oil cooler was clogged and causing a 30 deg difference, along with a leaking ICP sensor.

I take issue with your "unproven" statement. Our kit is well tested under severe conditions. It has proved far more reliable that OE and it addresses several pattern failures your solution doesn't.

What do you consider severe conditions?

Your jack and jackstands will do just fine.

For durability, 60k + miles (to date) on various fleet vehicles like tow trucks and construction support. For strength and durability, NASCAR and Trophy Truck (S.C.O.R.E.) proven materials and methods. For daily driving, Phoenix AZ... the surface of the sun. For emission standards, CA and AZ.

And then there is me.... I'm hard on equipment

Oh I know it will work well in the heat I was more concerned with the severe cold.
If I remember right you were working on a t-stat for the oil cooler and I was wondering how you get the gelled up oil out of the cooler once the t-stat opens in the winter.

I am a little concerned the added stress will speed up the wear of the lpop.

For your part of the world we have changed directions on our system. The oil t-stat system would work fine, but we are developing a liquid on liquid cooler system that will actually act as an oil pre-heater for extreme winter conditions.
