Planning EGR delete

My 05 has 145,000km on it and I want to do some upgrades and maintenance to it. In August we close the shop at work for a week so I am planning on shutting the truck down and taking advantage of a empty shop to work in. Right now my delta is about 11 degrees while tunes and a little less not tuned. So my plan so far is to start out with a coolant flush with restore and restore+ so I can install ELC coolant. Then I want to tear the truck down and do a EGR delete, install a new oil cooler, and do all the necessary HPO's upgrades. So I want to start gathering parts over the next couple months. I was wondering where the best place to get these parts is and if anybody has anything else I should add to my list. Thanks

If you haven't already, read the following thread and see what else comes to mind as far as parts updates, and upgrades that you feel are appropriate.

Tousley Ford (if my spelling is right there) is one of the more common Ford dealers shipping parts at good prices. Your other option is search around online and see if you can catch the right sales and price dips.

If you want to save a couple of bucks, Ford now offers a kit to rebuild the oil cooler vise having to replace the entire thing. Not sure exactly what's contained, but it runs around $220 vise the cost of a new unit.

Its a great idea to conduct your coolant swap and plan to rebuild/replace the oil cooler at the same time. Most folks want to cut corners and just flush without the chemicals, or flush and hope for the best. No point to not doing the job right the first time. With the ELC swap, you shouldn't need to go back in for an oil cooler again.
