Egr delete=my body is killing me

So I have read and the estimated time for a newbie should be 10 to 14 hours or egr delete and new oil cooler. No clue how that time is calculated. Here was my list of things to do.

Egr delete, oil cooler,update oil drain, blue spring upgrades, banjo bolts, painting intake elbow, polishing ic tubes

Not including my week strait of coolant flushing I spent 30 minutes wed pulling off intake and ic pipes as well as degas bottle. I spent 15 minutes thurs pulling turbo. I spent 7 hours saturday and 8 hours today and I still have to sit turbo back in, bolt on alternator, bolt on oil and fuel housing and connect lines, ic tube, and intake. That hard part is over and I had a hell of a time with the up pipe and y pipe yesterday. Major setback. Couldn't get the oil cooler out but finally broke her loose. I'm going to upload a pic of how dirty it was. You will not believe it. I'm not a mechanic but I'm very knowledgeable of tools. I did this with the fan, radiator, shroud in place. My back and knees are killing me lol. My hats off to anyone who does this for a living!!!

No wonder you're hurting. The rest of us use tools.


I just had to say it. Congrats on getting it done. Your ribs will get over it and not cost you any $$$. A topside creeper is a great addition.
