Edge Insight installed

Just finished installing Insight on truck. I took a 60 mile drive on Interstate and ECT was 194 and EOT was 199 on a 70 mph run. Next is Diesel site coolant filter and coolant flush (Restore & Restore Plus) with new Cat ELC and thermostat this weekend. Will ECT & EOT remain the same? Also how tough is it to install the EGT probe on 05 F-250? I guess I will need to purchase a new Exhaust manifold gasket since I will be pulling it off engine. Great advice from this forum on choosing Insight.

Weather I am 12 or 64 gonna live my life like there aint gonna be no more.

You just drill and tap the manifold ON the truck. No need to remove it. Just drill slow, use a magnet and shop vac to get the shavings out.

You can also add grease to the drill bit, so the metal shavings stick to it.

Don't grease the bit. A drill bit is designed to pull the material away from what is being drilled. If you put grease on it, it will clog the flutes and keep it from pulling shavings away. Just start with smaller bits and work your way up to the correct size. The smaller sizes will keep the metal as fine as possible. Use a small magnet and shop vac. when done to get remaining shavings out.

I would not use the Restore during the flush. Your temps are close enough and the Restore may cause the cooler to get clogged.

I just did like what Dhanna said, start with a smaller bit used about 3-4 bits increasing til I got to what I needed. Had no problems.

Having the Restore (& plus) is good, you won't know if you need them until you drain the old coolant out. Just because you have good temp delta is not a reason to skip this step.

Watch the coolant coming out, see if it's clean. Pull your hoses and T-stat and see if they are all clean. Take a look in your radiator and degass bottle too. If that stuff is all clean you can probably skip the Restore (& Plus) flushes. If there is any signs of anything at all other than clean wetness, you should do the full procedure as planned. You are not going to clog an oil cooler that is not already partially/mostly clogged. With your temp deltas, you will be good either way. Cleanliness is what you are looking for.

Restore will break free all the gunk. Make sure you buy an oil cooler cause you are going to need it after the Restore is done.
