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
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.
