Upgrade weekend

This weekend I have a lil list of things to do to my 05
Oil cooler
Hpop snap to connect
Blue spring
Egr delete
my question is should I wait and do dummy plugs and tubes(?) at the same time since its all apart or are the plugs easy to do without puling everything back apart?

Get started on it early. Oil cooler is the worst on your list but at least your doing it at the same time as the egr delete. Make sure your do a restore and restore + flush first.

I did the chemical flush and added a coolant filter last weekend. I'm just not sure where these plugs are located at?

as long as you dumped the coolant out the bottom radiator hose to get all the crap out. You should be good to go. Did you use restore and restore+?

No, I used the VC-9. Is that not as good?

VC-9 is basically the same as Restore Plus. Restore is different than both of those. Dummy plugs and stand pipes are located in the oil rail under the valve covers. You could do them then since everthing will be out of your way to remove the valve covers.

Restore get out the silicates that clog the oil cooler. VC-9 gets out rust. What is your delta?

GreenPSD- Thanks, I'll probably do it all at once then.

WarChild- I did multiple flushes with just water until it ran clear, installed coolant filter, 2 qts of VC-9 for 45 min of highway driving, flushed it with just distilled water until it ran clear, new thermostat (just for good measures) than filled system with fleetguard concentrate for correct mixture. Then I put 50 miles on the truck (22 degree deltas) hoping any leftover debris not caught with bypass filter would only clog up the cooler that I am removing.

Well, this late in the game I would go ahead and do the oil cooler change and see how it goes but it.would had been better had you don't the restore flush. You will probably be ok though.

Before you get in your truck. Clean off the engine with purple power. This helps allot!

Here are some links for RESTORE and RESTORE PLUS
RESTORE $24.50
Restore Coolant System Cleaner Gallon, CC2610, Fleetguard Cummins

RESTORE PLUS $28.50
Cooling system cleaner restore plus, CC2638, Fleetguard Cummins


Before you get to the oil cooler. Make sure you drain the coolant system.
And to decrease oil starvation pre-fill the oil cooler as best you can. I did this on my truck.
