Time for oil cooler/egr delete

Ok as soon as I get my tax refund I'll have $700 - 1000 to spend for repairs to my F-350. Here's what I'm thinking, Coolant filter (ordered today), oil cooler (factory), egr delete (ebay), boost hoses (factory), clamps, blue fuel spring upgrade, coolant replacement (Cat EC). I know I'm missing something, any suggestions?? I'd like to get a tuner in there but don't think there's room for that. Thanks. Coach

Boost hoses you mean intercooler boots? Did you try cleaning them? Reroute ccv will help with the oil issue on them.

You can get a tuner and custom tunes for under 500...if you want here is a link 6.0L Tuning + Gauge combo's

Other then that I say you are on the right track

Yea I meant intercooler boots, the blue ones, I blew one off a few weeks ago, figured I'd replace them both while I was there. I'll be doing the ccv reroute too. I just don't think I'll have the extra $500 for the tuner and tunes. Thanks. Coach

Ok I'm getting ready to order my egr delete, the best price I've found is $159 on ebay, are there any better deals out there? Thanks. Coach

You will need a tuner to turn off the check engine light after the EGR delete. Happens in 05 and up trucks for insufficient EGR flow. Just depends on if you can live the light being on or not

I'm going to leave the egr valve in place plugged in, at least for now. I've read that even if you turn it off using a tuner it effects your fan lockup. I need to get EGT and fuel pressure gauges, I have the scangauge II but will eventually replace it with the Edge CTS along with the SCT3. Coach

Even with the EGR in place and plugged in you will throw a code due to insufficient flow. You can just clear it each time with the scanguage until you get an SCT tuner.

Even plugged in it can turn the light on. There's really no reason to remove the valve, I don't know why people do. I never did but mine's an early 04 and CEL is not a problem after EGR deletion.

Well I'm going to have to deal with it until I have the money for the SCT3 with tunes. I'm replacing the engine in my Jeep at the same time so money is really tight, don't want to cut corners on either project.
