Question: Oil Cooler, Oil/Filter Change, and Coolant Flush

Just want to double-check my "strategy" and see if anyone has anything to add.

Goals:

Rebuild Oil Cooler
Oil Change
BHOF Install
Coolant Flush (ELC)
Billet TS Housing
203* TS

Just wanted to make sure I'm doing this the right way:

Drain oil, remove filter.
Remove coolant block heater hose and drain.
Remove oil cooler. Clean.
Rebuild. Oil Cooler How To...since it's that time of year. - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums
Re-install cooler and block heater hose.

Install Fumoto Valve, BHOF, Fill Oil. (16 Qt)

Gooch's Radiator/Engine Backflush Procedure and Coolant Information - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums
Drain coolant. (Radiator, bottom hose, engine block drains x2)
Remove old TS and Housing.
Install Billet housing, hose, and flush Kit into radiator lines.
Back Flush till clear. Drain Again. Remove Flush Kit.

Fill with Distilled water. Run. Drain Again.
Fill with Distilled water. Run. Drain Again.

Re-install Block Plugs and 203* TS.
Fill with coolant. (4 Gallons ELC)
Top off with distilled water.

Run engine with heater on defrost, heat on all the way until it stays hot. Rev engine a few times. (Burp)
Top off w/ distilled water if needed.

Pray to God the water pump doesn't blow up and there are no leaks. And hope I can find a $100 bill so I can buy/install a coolant filter by-pass.

Am I missing anything, any tricks to add? Order correct?

Which coolant are you using? i read over and and got confused a bit but it needs to be a "heavy duty" (HD) elc, right?

Im gettin ready to do an entire systems change. Oil, coolant, charge air conditioning, differential, and all filters. i would like to add the coolant filter, oil bypass filter, and the 203* thermostat. But we will see if that gets done

Any ELC that is CAT-1 rated. It will be red and as long as it is CAT-1, youre all good!

MUST be CAT-1 Rated. Also he will need to buy concentrate, not 50/50 unless the entire system is bloan out to get all the distilled water out. Which is almost impossible unless the block is fresh.

DO NOT run ELC with an E-99!

It will make the injector cups leak! only 99.5 or later!

which is the right coolant for an E99?

2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!

Use "conventional coolant" and add SCA (supplemental coolant additive)

Conventional would be just the regular stuff any car takes, non specific stuff
