Doing an EGR delete and rebuild oil cooler

Where are you guys getting the best deal on the oil cooler rebuild kits, or are you just buying new ones? We're doing the DIY EGR delete to save some money, I have a friend that is a welder and can weld up the cooler, I'll weld a plug in the up pipe, I'll just need some hose and the 180* bend for the coolant line. I'm also installing a coolant filter on this truck too.

What else am I missing?

you are going to want to take the up pipe out and take the scoop out of the pipe. then just weld the hole shut. and i used a small preformed hose to make the 180degree bend for the oil cooler to the intake hose.

Its an 04 so I don't think it has that baffle in the up-pipe, but I will be sure to look and cut it out if necessary. I wonder if I can find just a gasket kit for the intake manifold and the oil cooler? That way I won't be running around like a fool getting them while I'm trying to put it back together

I bought an oil cooler rebuild kit off of ebay for about 165 shipped.

The oil cooler rebuild kit comes with all the o-rings and gaskets to rebuild the oil cooler. The oil cooler rebuild kit part # is 3C3Z-6A642-CA, and you can get intake gasket kit part # 3C3Z-9433-AA and it includes the turbo mounting hardware.

I bought my oil cooler from my dealer. I just told the parts guy that I wanted to buy local rather than buying it online so he asked me how much they were going for and I told him about $200 online, he said he would do it for $225 so I got it from him. The intake gaskets run about $90.

Thanks guys, I will probably start tearing into it this week sometime. I want to verify that its the cooler and not the HG's

Get the rebuild kits either from Ebay, the dealership or BulletProof Diesel. The rebuild kits are about $200 for the new cooler block and gaskets. You will need new intake gaskets and EGR cooler gaskets as well, which are about $100.

don't forget to get the stainless screen underneath the oil cooler. They fall apart over time and should be replaced.
