Coolant flush after Oil Cooler replaced.

I finally have some time to somewhat "bullet proof" my 6.0. i had the oil cooler replaced and installed the Bulletproof egr cooler last summer. i want to do the coolant swap but wasnt sure if it was recommented after the new oil cooler has already been replaced.

I know its out there, i did a search and couldnt find it so i appologize in advance.

ideally i would do a major coolant flush BEFORE a new oil cooler. you run the risk of clogging the new oil cooler with all the junk that's trapped in your system.

also if you plan on switching to CAT EC-1 or similar you will need to do a MAJOR flush to get all the silicates from the ford crap out.

Mine just got new Delo coolant about a month after it got new coolers. Flushed with 20 gal. distilled water, no chemicals. Bismic did a nice writeup on his ELC conversion to a healthy cooling system, don't have the link handy. Edit for link: http://http://www.powerstroke.org/fo...few-folks.html
