Gaskets failed, in the shop

Ford is replacing both coolers, gaskets and putting in studs. I'm pretty sure there is a warranty that covers the work for a year, haven't talked to them yet about it. Should I run Ford's coolant and all that or move forward with additional bullet proofing? I'm leaning towards keeping everything OEM so if it does fail its covered. But, I really don't want to go through this again. I would immediately flush out the ford gold, install a coolant filter and throw an egr delete on. Thoughts?

It's a $6800 dollar bill all for me. I'm just talking about the warranty that is issued on the work they are doing now.

If you delete your egr you might get a check engine light and then you will need a couple tuner to fix it. See if they would install a bulletproof cooler if you supplied the part.

For 150 bucks, you can get rid of that check engine light.
Check out power hungry performance, ECM programming. They rewrite the ECM/TCM programming to exclude egr function, "rollback" the stock programming and can install a tune on the ECM/TCM that is head bolt safe.
Check it out: CLICK HERE
Cheaper than buying a tuner and having custom tunes written

If you have to pay to have it all fixed, why not do it the right way and have studs, egr deleted, and new oil cooler installed after a flush?
