startup after egr delete, oil cooler and HPOP STC replacement

I'm just finishing up on the EGR delete, oil cooler replacement, fuel pressure spring rreplacement and replacing the SCT fitting on the HPOP. Are there any special precautions or steps I need to take prior to starting the engine such as building oil pressure and fuel pressure? Any advice would be appreciated.

It may take some extended cranking, because the low pressure oil pump needs to refill the oiling system.
Completely normal. Just make sure your batteries are fully charged.

cycle the key a lot before cranking it over to get the air out of the fuel system and get the oil pressure up. that help me a lot last week when i did mine.

Cycling the key will purge the air out of the fuel system, but will not build oil pressure. The engine must turn over to build oil pressure.

i never crank for very long for fear of overheating the starter. it's not going to fire on the first crank unless you filled the hpop reservoir

Right, I didn't mean it to say that you just crank it once for that extended period of time.... crank for 15 to 20 seconds max....let the starter cool and do it again. When I did my BPD oil cooler it took 2 or 3 attempts, and I filled everything I could.

Thanks guys. It took 3 or 4 cranks to get it to start. Runs like a champ and no more white smoke when warm. Now I will do the same thing to the second truck this week to correct the 50 degree variation in the oil to coolant temperature.

Not that hard at all. I built a platform to straddle the front of the truck using a 4x8 sheet of plywood to lay on. That made it real easy as you did not have to stand on the bumper or other stand. The frame for the plywood was out of 2x4's. Had it all apart in one day and back together in 2 days. I think the hardest part was cleaning the inside of the intake. It was really gummed up with oil and soot/carbon. Reinstalled the EGR valve after the delete and no codes were thrown.
