Not sure what year your truck is, but do you have (or need) the following...
- updated turbo drain pipe and feed pipe, and turbo gasket kit
- updated STC fitting
- IPR socket (so you can pull it and check screen)
- new thermostat
When cleaning out the HPOP reservoir do not wipe it out with rags, the lint that they leave on the cast iron is almost impossible to see and even harder to remove.
Now would also be a good time to replace the water pump with a new BPD pump.
Are you going to do a coolant flush before you start?
I'm also wondering why you didn't install that new trans cooler last month when you did the trans?
If there was anything in it then it's already been flushed out into your new trans.
Did you update the trans pan and filter to the better '08 style filter?
