EGR Delete, What else?

I think my EGR is Leaking coolant, so i plan on deleting it soon. is there anything else i should do at the same time? i plan on doing a coolant flush and switching to ELC along with a coolant filter. Should i change the thermostats while i am at it? Do they go bad that often? Anything else that makes sense to do at the same time?

I would also change the t stats. Also if your radiator hoses arent the updated ones might as well get the updated hoses while you are draining the coolant. Also if you have the money the CAC pipe.

The updated degas bottle only has one port and updated fill lines.

It doesnt really do anything. It has the fill lines lower so you wont overfill and puke coolant. It also only has one port for the coolant return. I have been wanting to upgrade it but i havent yet. I probably would since you doing all that work to your cooling system.
