Did a egr delete and oil cooler

First I want to thank everyone for all the information that is posted here. I have done very little engine work since high school and the inner workings of my super-duty was a little intimidating to me. I had all of the concepts down but was still a little worried.
I started disassembly Friday at 2:00 pm hoping my delete kit and oil cooler would be at my door as promised. At 5:30 pm ups dropped off three boxes. A oil cooler, egr delete kit, live wire tuner, and intake gaskets. By 11:00 pm I had the Turbo removed and called it quits for the night. Saturday morning after coffee I stared again. About noon as i pulled the intake I had my only screwup. I bumped a injector plug with the manifold and broke the lock off. Looked up a few solutions on the site and settled on high temp silicone just to hold it in place. I knocked off early on Saturday at about 8:30 pm after torqueing the manifold down. Easter Sunday I finished at about 2:00 and took a test drive, what a world of difference it made. The street program is PLENTY powerful for me/us (wife drive the truck more than me).
I now feel confident that I could tackle just about anything on this truck.

Thanks again!
