should i do it now or wait?

ok so i have an 03 6.0, i have collected everything i need to do egr delete, new oil cooler, vc-9 and restore.

i was planning on doing it all at once.

however last week i blew my turbo, so i am now awaiting the arrival of a powermax.

so my question is, while i have it apart should i do the egr delete and change the oil cooler, then put the turbo on and do the flush, or should i put turbo on, do the flush and then egr delete and new oil cooler?

thanks

do it all at once or you'll be doing the turbo twice

that's good logic on my part

That was my thinking as well. I guess my main question or concern is flushing the system with the new oil cooler in. I am worried it may clog. Wasn't sure if I should flush with the old stuff in then change everything out. Or if it was ok to flush after replacing everything.

Rock,

I have an 04 with 100k miles, all original. I am currently running 13° delta at steady highway speeds. I am ordering my coolant filter kit tonight and plan to do multiple flushes including the Restore and Restore+ before I change my oil and egr coolers. I am still trying to figure out a way to reverse the flow (backflush) thru the egr and oil coolers to see if I can get better cleaning that way, but have not come up with a plan yet. Good luck on your work.
Roger

only flush before doing the oil cooler, it will only plug up the new one if you do it after
