Coolent Flush and EGR delete/oil cooler replacement

Im starting the "BIG EVENT" in ten minutes, so start the clock. I have never done this before so let see how long it takes a green horn to complete. I have down loaded and printed all the files, studied the process like Im working on college finials. Any last minute tips

Took me 2 days. Make sure you spray the turbo bolts with pb blaster. If you have any questions post them up. We will help.

Knee pads...or a top side creeper. I'm about 8 hours into mine (over the past week). My knees hurt from trying to get to the up pipe bolts and heat shield. I don't have the room to get a top side creeper in my garage (truck barely fits).

Besides that, take your time and you'll be fine. Spray the exhaust bolts down with knocker loose a couple times before you try to unbolt them.

Only other big issue I've faced is carving out time to work on it. Seems work keeps getting in the way of my garage time.

Knocker loose...lol

oh and taking off the passenger side wheel makes getting to the up pipe bolts way easier. Just cut the old ones off.

When removing the old oil from the HPOP reservoir, be sure not to disturb the oil too much. Debris and dirt can be pushed down past a failed HPOP screen. This debris/dirt can get sucked into the IPR during start up and cause a no start or running issues.


When you remove the oil cooler from the motor, take note how much oil is in the HPOP reservoir before you suck out the oil. Then prior to dropping in the new oil cooler, refill the HPOP reservoir with new oil to the same level. This will help get the motor running during initial start up, less cranking. If you choose to skip this step, you may be cranking the motor for about 45min trying to get the air out out the HPOP system.


Take pictures of the intake bolts for there proper location, some bolts have studded tops for heat shield, FICM ground, and wire loom connections.

That's the brand I buy...lol For obvious reasons...

Also get a new STC fitting.

I tried the passenger wheel idea, broke my stupid wheel lock key. I've got to order a replacement on Monday... So plan for a little longer just in case. You need that "throw a tool" time to be able to walk off and cuss the car gods.
