Yay tax returns! New Oil Cooler and other stuff

Looking for opinions! Getting my tax return soon and I need a new oil cooler (20* delta). So here is what I'm pretty sure I am going to do with it:

Coolant Flush
Change Oil Cooler
Updated Drain Tube
EGR Delete
STC Fittings
ELC Coolant
Probably Coolant Filter

Any other suggestions? Not going to be getting an x3 and tunes/exhaust till summer sometime.

Also looking for opinions on how to go about changing the oil cooler as well, as a good instructions.

I am looking to do most of that too with my tax return. What are STC fittings? I did the diesel site coolant filter already. What else should be done when doing the Oil cooler and EGR delete while you are already in there?

STC are fittings in 05-07 on the HPOP that are prone to failure, the updated ones are built better. Other than what I plan on doing, i don't think there is much more to do. Hopefully someone else will chime in

I will be working on these projects this weekend.

Here is a list of items I will be replacing in addition to oil cooler change and EGR delete. I consolidated the list after gleaning this and another forum.

Fuel Pressure Reg kit (3C3Z-9T517-AG)
Banjo Bolts x 2 (W302472) w/ Washers x 4 (W303659)
In addition to the updated Turbo Drain Tube (6C3Z-9T515-A) I will install the updated turbo feed tube as well (Int P/N 1845287C96 & Ford P/N 3C3Z-9T516-A)

I also am planning to rebuild the turbo while I have it out using the rebuild kit from International (Int P/N1870713C91).

Perhaps more experienced forum members can comment on these upgrades.

I am in the middle of changing out my oil cooler and EGR delete. Once you have everything disassembled to do your work, the 2 banjo bolts are easy to replace.

Yup here is my list of part numbers, but I didnt get them from Ford. Links are down below!

Oil Cooler: 3C3Z-6A642-CA, IPRResearch Oil Cooler
Intake Gaskets: 3C3Z-9439-AA, eBay - NEW-FORD-6-0-L-DIESEL-INTAKE-GASKET-SET-2003-2007
Upgraded Turbo Drain Tube: 6C3Z-9T515-A
Upgraded Turbo Feed Tube: 3C3Z-9T516-A
Turbo Hardware Kit: 3C3Z-9T514-AD
All the Turbo Parts: eBay - 03-07-Ford-Diesel-6-0-BETTER-TURBO-OIL-FEED-DRAIN-TUBE
STC Fitting Kit: 4C3Z-9B246-F, IPRResearch STC Fittings
EGR Delete: eBay - FORD-6-0L-03-07-EGR-DELETE-KIT-F250-F450-POWERSTROKE

Still Need to Get (will be checking at Ford)

Banjo Bolts: 2x bolts- W302472, 4x washers- W303659

All my eBay items I will vouch for. They were fast at shipping and communication was awesome. The seller for the turbo parts has a ton of stuff listed for our 6.0s, so if you need anything check there! They are here before my oil cooler has showed up! eBay User - hccs2/ Everything came with the Ford Instructions too.

Oh and this may help too! http://www.ford-trucks.com/ford-manuals/

Hope this helps!
