EGR Delete Kit next weekend

Next Sat. I am installing a Dicad EGR Delete, Sinister Coolant Filter and MBRP 4" Off Road Turbo Back Exhaust on a 06 King Ranch with 30,000 miles. I already have the Edge Insight CTS and the delts between the EOT and ECT are never more then 10*F with the ECT always being around 188-192. So I am not going to replace oil cooler.

I do have a couple questions on the Delete.

First, the Dicad instructions are not written to well and seem to have several more steps then other instructions I have researched online such as the sinister or the alligator. Does anyone suggest one set of instructions over the other?

Second, this may be a silly question to some, but I just want to make sure everything is correct. I know the coolant needs to be drained, which I am replacing the stock coolant anyway, but does the oil need to be drained and replaced? Only ask because I just changed oil about 500 miles ago and from what I read the oil filter needs to be replaced also when doing a delete kit.

Finally, any advice or extra supplies that anyone would suggest getting that will make things easier so I do not have to run out 50 times while installing.

Thanks

I used a CLEAN bucket and put the coolant back in. It doesn't all need drained, about 2~3 will do. Allow about 12-16 hours to do the entire cooler delete. Your CEL is going to come on eventually, too.

A ratcheting torque wrench is the best bet for unloading the serpentine, this REQUIRES removing the aft clip on part of the fan shroud. Otherwise you have to muscle that belt back onto the alternator.

Finally, don't be surprised if you break every ehaust bolt that you touch, I did.

you can replace the oil filter without draining the oil, but if you have to just use another clean container. i guess by your name what you will have on the stereo when you are doing the work.
