Oil cooler change

Getting ready to do some work on my truck. Deltas are about 20 apart. So I am deleting the egr cooler replacing the oil cooler, blue spring, banjo bolt, coolant filter. I plan on flushing the system first and replacing the coolant with elc. When Im all done my question is will I have to replace the oil cooler again after I do all this? I also just bought a sct and tunes from vivian. Anything else I will need while I have it torn down this far? I will post pics of my progress as I tear it down and replace all this. Never worked on a diesel before so I plan on giving myself few days to do it all and hopefully it all comes out right..

Pretty sure you keep the oil cooler that's been on the ( not the after market one) and flush it and run restore and restore + and also distilled water after . There is a exact step by step somewhere on here. After you do all these flushes then replace the oil cooler cause usually the oil cooler will plug up after a chemical flush so I am told.. But yes 20* is def a time for some changes.. Asap
