You do realize that your oil cooler is the reason the egr cooler failed, right?
The plugging of the oil cooler coolant passages slows the coolant flow to the egr cooler. The slower moving coolant allows the egr cooler to overheat. The overheating gets worse as the oil cooler becomes more plugged up. Eventually the overheating causes the egr cooler to fail. Deleting the egr cooler without addressing the oil cooler could result in the oil cooler exploding internally.
Replace the oil cooler AND delete the egr cooler.

If you delete the EGR cooler, rebuild or replace your oil cooler, and clean your cooling system you should be good! Studs if you plan on bigger injector and or turbo. If you are running those stock and just tuning, no studs needed most likely!

For a real eye opener, park nose down over night and see what you get in the EGR valve hole.

Should it be alright to replace everything, then flush or opposite before replacing oil cooler.
