How much coolant to drain

How much coolant do I need to drain out before doing the EGR delete kit?

Thanks, Rick

I'd just pull the lower rad hose...do the delete and fill with 50/50 Zerex G-05.

You will only need to drain around 3 gallons, but it would be a good time to just change the coolant while you are there. Put Motocraft gold back in it.
