If you can get away with deleting the egr cooler do it. That will depend on emission standards where you register the vehicle. Make sure you flush the coolant before you swap the oil cooler. I got an oil cooler from the local parts store for $200. You can get an egr delete from ebay for under a hundred. Change your coolant to CAT1 rated ELC when you do the flush. Might want to install a coolant filter as well. Pull your egr valve out and look for moisture (coolant) in your intake manifold. If you find coolant the egr cooler is bad. When I did mine it took me 22 hours...that was with chasing down parts, coolant, oil and tools I broke or needed during the process (I broke two 10mm sockets on the rear turbo bolt). Long day for sure. Probably only spent 15 hours working on it but I was being slow and taking my time taking pictures and organizing everything so it would go back together smooth. Basic tools the parts and patience is all you need. There's good videos on YouTube that walk you through it step by step. That's what I used. The turbo it's was my biggest struggle.
That obd2 Bluetooth will work. The cheap ones like that are Chinese, so don't expect it to last forever. There are some better ones that run in the $150 range. I bought a cheap one hoping to get a monitor here in the next few months. Either way it's important to monitor a bunch of things on these trucks to keep from having big problems...
