Installed CTS just one or two ?

Ok so this past week I received and installed my CTS I ordered from ID. It went on well and even adding the EGR probe wasn't too bad. (I am a newbe at automotive work as my parents opinion is just take it some where and have it fixed) I just have two question. While running down the highway at 60-65 my EOT and my ECT have a 9* difference. Sometimes it will range from 2-12* when getting going or just putting around town but on highway I have a 9* difference. My questions are is that bad. Right now my truck is stock except for a muffler delete on a stock pipe.

So should I do my coolant flush now, add a coolant filter and keep the EGR and Oil cooler in till I get a 15*

Or

Should I just say this is a large enough difference and pull the EGR, add a BP, new oil cooler, and then do the coolant flush before I get a 15* difference?

I would get the coolant filter on ASAP that way you can start filtering the coolant to help the oil cooler. I think a 10* the coolers are starting to get into trouble it will take 5-7k before the system is cleaned then i would do a Restore flush only and install ELC coolant CAT EC-1 Rated but just remember you may have to do coolers but you would have to do a flush before you did the repairs anyway, are your temps BAD no but they will get bad if you do not get the Ford Gold Junk coolant out.

I don't think it will leaves you stranded because you know what your temps are, i have seen temp deltas posted my member of 30-35* now you may get stranded or if you pulled a heavy 5er. Mine solo run 4-6* and when pulling my 5er of 10* ECT 218* EOT 228* in 90* temps on a 6% grade 6 miles long.

Well I am going to be ordering a dieselsite filter system soon. I guess I will just see how long I can keep the EGR together. I wonder if switching the coolant and adding the filleter will actually prevent me from having to delete it?
