If you have to keep it for emissions then this is the way to go
BulletProof EGR Coolers
and also install a new oil cooler while you are there.
Get a coolent filter with 2 valves and 3 filters you will need them
http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=324
Get a good set of gauges i like the Edge Insight.
Remove the Ford Gold cxxp and install ELC coolent if you are going to change out these other parts do the flush then with just distilled water in do the repairs then come back with the ELC. Here is the flush.
Coolant Flush for changing to ELC

Drain coolant by removing lower radiator hose. Drain block from plug on drivers side of the block. Remove the thermostat. Replace plug in block and put lower hose back on. Put thermostat housing back on without thermostat. Fill with distilled water. run for 5 minutes then drain as above. Put 2 qts of VC-9 and fill with distilled water. Drive it for about 60-90 minutes. Drain and flush after. Put in 1 gallon of Restore an top with distilled water. Drive it for an 60-90 minutes then drain. Flush 2 times with distilled water or whatever it takes to come clear. Replace thermostat or put in a new one. Put hose back, make sure block plug is tight. Add 3.5 gallons of ELC concentrate and top off with distilled water. Make sure to run engine for 5 minutes between flushes to circulate the water good. Have heater on set to hi while doing this to flush the heater core too.

Get an Edge Insight to monitor all your temps, you can set alarms to change a different color to let you know if you have high EGT or EOT etc etc. 83400 is the old insight the new one I dont know the number but I think it can beep and change color when you set the an alarm. Also your going to need to get a tune to clear the code if you put an egr in.

be careful with the restore, i work for a cummins distributor as a tech and that stuff if quite volitile, i personally wouldnt use a full gallon, the directions are 1 gallon of restore per 10 gallon cooling system... on semis and large equipment that have 10 gal plus sytems on them i only ever use one gallon of restore at a time, ive seen this stuff eat through metal radiator tubes if left in long enough or not flushed out good enough. ive also seen where a new guy put 2 gallons in a isb 5.9 because noone told him different, and within 10 minutes of the truck running on the flush it was pouring restore and water out the water pump weep hole and base seal... this has happend more than once. im not trying to scare anyone im just informing everyone that the stuff is pretty serious be careful with it and maybe not use so much in the psd cooling system.

Thanks,
Adam
