Egr Delete and Oil Cooler

My truck is at about 130,000 miles and I'm finally getting around to the egr and oil cooler. Those seem pretty straight forward and shouldn't give me too much trouble. While I've got it apart I'm planing on also doing blue fuel spring and 6.4 banjo bolts. Is there anything else I should be looking at while its apart?

Thanks

4" straight pipe, sct x3, edge cts, sinister coolant filter

Thumbs up

Check this link out,it helped me immensely ,has all the torque specs and defiently hands on! Watch the first one then look at the menu on the side and watch the 3 vids above the one that is greyed out.
Also wouldn't be a bad idea to do the STC branch tube in the HPOP while ya have the intake off.Do yourself a favor n do a EGR delete to help the cooler last longer.

Flush the coolant and change to ELC before you do the oil cooler change out.

^^^^^ What he said,wish i did a flush first but mine already popped the EGR cooler so I did not want to take a chance. Have you considered head studs ,since you are running a tune?

^do what they said

while you are in there you might update your oil drain tube, and turbo oil feed line also.

I just did the egr delete and new oil cooler at 150,000 a few weeks ago. I did everything you have listed plus what I said above.

Good Luck

At 130K your intake is going to be filthy. Make plans to clean or have a spare intake ready to go to speed the project up.

I believe filthy would be the understatement of the year!Took me almost 3 hrs of diligent scrubbing with a assortment of brushes( restaurant grade bottle brush works great)Dawn,amazing orange(dollar tree store)and a good pressure nozzle on the hose.
At 136500 miles it was so clogged up that i am amazed the it even flowed any air at all.

If you have a pressure washer get ready to use it and get wet at the same time. I used my neighbors and washed my intake in my drive way.

Do NOT wash it in your drive way unless you want to power wash the drive way afterwards, because that crap out of the intake sticks big time and is a b**** to get off.


Good Luck

Turbo oil drain and feed lines, STC fitting should be updated.
