Well I am in Corpus Christi and I just don't get enough feedback on local diesel shops to really know what I will get. I found Powerstroke magic in Houston and they seem reasonable on the price for studding it, EGR, and oil Cooler. So does anyone have any experience with them?
What is your ECT and EOT delta that has you concerned?
Has your truck been puking coolant? If the answer to this question is no I wouldn't mess with the heads at all with that mileage. I'd leave them alone, do the oil cooler, egr delete, and flush the cooling system and switch to a Cat EC-1 rated ELC coolant.

Any one with even moderate wrenching skills should be able to do an egr delete. It is not real difficult. Same with the oil cooler actually.
