EGR Cooler Delete

I checked my coolant overflow today and it is full of the nastiest chocolate milk substance I've seen in any coolant system. FUn FUn.

I ordered the EGR Delete similiar to the sinister kit. My questions are where to start. I imagine I should try to flush the coolant before I even dig in? Since I have to replace it anyhow, is there an alternative to the OEM cooler? If not, where is the cheapest place to buy an oiler cooler kit? Found 180ish on ebay.

Ordered Coolant Filter as well. I plan on pulling the lower intake and having it tanked. My oil looks good, and no smoke out the exhaust, I think I made it before the HG went. Besides replacing that oil cooler screen, any other suggestions while I'm in there? 150K miles, all stock. Truck runs fine as expected sluggish off the line, especially when cold.

Thanks!
Trevor

Sounds like you have oil in your coolant. I would flush your coolant system using the Ford VC-9 cleaner. Do a search on this forum for "cleaning coolant system", I have seen several detailed procedures on how to do it. When deleting the EGR and EGR cooler put a new oil cooler in along with a coolant by pass filtration system.

Yeah, the chocolate milk being oil was a gimme.

Got most everything apart, surprised how many bolts were missing or loose! V Clamps sticking, and having to cut a couple exhaust bolts off were the hardest parts, not too bad! Cleaning the turbo while I'm at it. I got an oil cooler 270 from ford with some negotiating, also got a new reservoir screen.

Anything else I should do? I've read a couple people comment about a new fuel pressure spring, something I should think about?

Yeah, you might consider it while you have it apart.
