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.

N-fab wheel to wheel steps so my girl can get in haha.

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
