Best way to tackle this?

I have these parts to install:
Oil cooler, water pump, Regulated return, 38R WW, 203*tstat, billet plenum inserts, new degas bottle and some little odds and ends stuff, new coolant filter.
I also have supplies ready:
14 gallons of distilled water, 4 gallons rotella T, oil filter, prestone flush kit.

So here is my plan I was thinking of
1. Remove old tstat
2. using the prestone kit and using the garden hose to do an initial flush before anything else, run it till its clear, drain.
3. pour in first 8 gallons of distilled run for a bit, and drain.
4. being tear down, degas bottle, fan clutch water pump, remove old coolant filter
5. Install new water pump, replace fan.
6. drain oil, pull oil cooler, clean up the ends, install new oil cooler.
7. pull turbo, intercooler tubes, spider, replace 38r wheel with new wicked wheel.
8. begin RR install
9. replace everything removed
10. Top off with fresh oil, new coolant filter,put in next 8 gallons of distilled, drain again.
11. install new 203*tstat, top off with zerex ecl1 4 gallons and fill to line with distilled.
12. get the air out check for leaks, run the pants offa it....

Anything that should be moved around order wise? especially the new coolant filter, only have one. thanks

Seems fine to me. Personally, I'd wait to run the coolant filter till you're running the EC-1 ELC. Otherwise, you'll have an undesired mix with the filter there.

I thought about putting it on last but was worried about the old one releasing crap into the system during the flushes. Maybe I should just not re-install the filter system untill last to avoid this?

Re: Best way to tackle this?

7.3s don't have an issue with things clogging up.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

your appraoch sounds good, but i would just drain the coolant and not fill/flush wit hdistilled. Wait til everythings' done/installed, the nflush/refill. There's 2-coolant plugs, each side of block, to remove so block can be drained. Located by the oil cooler and another plug atop the starter.

Im gonna suggest you pull the turbo, do the RR and then install the turbo but your probably were gonna do that anyways.

Thanks for all the help everyone, everything went as planned, except for autozones clutch fan wrench decided to bend in the process, luckily they had 2 sets. I haven't recieved the reg return yet but everything else went in. New wheel is real nice!
