EGR Delete Kit arrived & going in this weekend

So I order the Flo-Pro full EGR delete kit with Intake Elbow from Rudy's via Ebay. Plan on doing job this weekend. I am anticipating that I may need to replace plastic Y-pipe as many here have said they break easily. I also am not sure if I have the upgraded upper coolant hose. So once that comes off I will see if it is the new (double O-ring White) version. Other than these 2 parts which may require a trip to the parts counter, is their anything else I may unexpectedly need to buy?

If I do need to replace parts, this will probably set me back a few days as tomorrow is Saturday and doubt Dealership has these in stock. Plus I could also save some coin by ordering on line.

Any last minute tips before I dive in? Gotta say, I'm a little nervous. I mean the experienced guys say it's a 5-6 hour job and I'm sure I will run into the unexpected. So just looking for where I may run into an elevated volume on the "curse - o - meter"..

Thanks in advance. I never would even attempt this job without all the information and advice I have gathered on this site.

May as well do a coolant flush as well since you will have all the coolant drained anyways. Probably change thermostats as well.

I've been losing so much coolant due to these damn EGR coolers over the last 12 months that it's like I've been doing coolant flushes. I mean no joke. I add about 1 gallon every 500 miles. It just disappears. Sure it's an internal cooler leak. Which is why I'm getting rid of the coolers.

yeah. tell me about it. It's not showing up anywhere else either. No stains on the DeGas bottle. No external leaks. It's got to be leaking internally and going out the exhast.

Fwiw, go ahead and remove the left ft tire and fender liner. It makes removing the lower cooler much easier.

will do that with the driver tire. Thanks

Hey. another dumb question. But why do I have to drain the coolant? Can't I just pop off the coolant lines and quickly get the coolant plugs on there? Or is that unrealistic that I can do that w/o making a huge mess?

You'll probably end up making a huge mess plus you said you were removing the rad hoses to check for the dual o-rings. Just be cleaner to drain it first.

Good point. I just sprayed down all the nasty looking bolts with some PB Blaster. Getting a good night sleep tonight as getting started early.
