Egr delete / oil cooler replacement and flush

I'm pretty new to the 6.0 as I've only had mine about 3 months now... When I first purchased the truck I had no prior knowledge of it. I asked the guy if he had the egr delete done and other things and he told me he did have the egr delete but nothing else. Well (as most of u would've guessed) it still has the egr on there and it also has a bad oil cooler. I know this because once I studied up on the forums I looked and the egr cooler is still on and I know my oil cooler is bad because I am flashboiling the coolant and puking out of the degas bottle. I ordered a egr delete kit, oil cooler kit, turbo kit (bolts and O rings), and intake manifold gaskets. I am also going to pick up 7 gallons of cat elc and some vc-9 on Friday before I start this little project. My truck is an 05 crewcab with 136000 miles, is there anything I should be looking for or replacing while I'm in there? And does anybody know the star bit used to remove the oil filter assembly?any random tips would be appreciated.. Here is a pic of what I have right now also

I'm also thinking about taking pics and recording my progress as I go...I haven't found a detailed "real picture" write up on the forums doing this... All I have found are the black and white PDF manuals...let me know if u think I should post pics of everything or if u know of a great write up with pics that would be appreciated too

It is one I ordered off of ebay and it is not oem. But they do give me a lifetime warranty....I'm worried a little about how it will stand up myself but with money being tight I really had no choice.. I didn't want to keep riding on a bad oil cooler and cause egr cooler rupture and hydro lock my engine

The pdf's are in my sig, as well as the updated parts that you should address...mainly just the turbo oiling. One part I would strongly suggest doing while you have the turbo and intake out of the way would be the STC fitting on your HPOP. Not difficult to do.

DO NOT PUT THAT PIECE OF GARBAGE IN YOUR TRUCK!!!!
The ebay special oil coolers are JUNK. Less cooling capacity, the studs have been pulling out of the housings and the gasket sets are silicone that dissolve in the presence of oil. Don't do it, you will regret it.
FORD OEM only for a part this important to the longevity of your trucks engine.

How much is a stc fitting going to cost? I will have to get it from my dealer..and how would you know if the stc fitting is bad?

Ok ok! Lol well would I be ok with only putting the egr delete on for now and flushing the system? Until I get the right oil cooler?

Replacement STC fitting will be right around 50-60 bucks at your Ford dealer.
It isn't bad if your truck is running now...but since those fittings have a 100% failure rate, and you asked what would be best to replace at this time, that is definitely a part to think about doing.
