I agree with the above. I am always a proponent of doing your own work if you can. It is cheaper and will give you a better understanding of how your motor work. You can get your parts cheapest fro Tousley Ford Parts. The oil cooler rebuild kit is about $200. DO NOT use the Ford coolant. Get yourself a CAT EC-1 rated ELC. It seems like the Zerex is the easiest to locate. It can be had from Napa under part# ZXED1. Make sure to use the concentrate whichever brand you choose. Make sure the system is flushed well before tackling the oil cooler. (I know you said you just flushed it) Then just take your time. It is not technically difficult, just time consuming. You can do this job for under $350 doing it yourself. I'm sure you can find better things to do with the $1k that stays in your pocket.
agreed, just did mine! easy but time consuming, took me and a buddy from 11am to 7pm to do egr delete and oil cooler last saturday.
