You should be replacing the oil cooler too. And maybe the intake gaskets. I didnt have to.replace any clamps.

I thought about replacing the oil cooler but several mechanics I talked to said if the egr cooler has not gone out then the oil cooler should be fine. Unless I just wanted an upgraded oil cooler.... I don't know, this is my first diesel.

Lol what shop told you that...lol You need to find out what you delta's are. I would not.start this project until you know exactly what condition your motor is in and you do that by monitoring your motor.Get yourself some guages or even better an edge insight cts. By the way oil coolers go bad way before egr coolers. You also need to do a flush and switch your coolant to an elc. Basically there is a lot of stuf to do before doing your project. Simply putting an egr delete isnt going to do anything for you. You dony gain HP or MPG its to.ether fix an issue or prevent one but if you replace it and your oil cooler is bad your not salving the issue just by replacing the egr system. You can still rupture your oil cooler if your delta's are way off.

If your oil cooler is plugged and the flow through the EGR cooler is restricted and the coolant boils in the EGR cooler thereby making it rupture/fail and possibly followed by the head gaskets due to stretching of the TTY headbolts.

i agree. get some gauges and a coolant filter, run it for 5k or so and flush the coolant, switch to elc, then tear it apart and decide if u wanna replace the oil cooler depending on ur temps. id also replace the stc fitting, stand pipes, dummy plugs, and update the turbo oil feed and drain tubes. i think u will also need a gasket kit for the turbo moutning and i would take apart the turbo and clean it if necessary. u could also change the thermostat and clean the cac boots and do a ccv mod so they dont get full of oil.

NO... This is reading

Oil cooler causes EGR cooler... Check your temp Deltas, they WILL show you what is going on... going in blind will warrent you another trip into your engine bay. Please listen to the guys who have "been there done that"
