really if you going after the cooler, do the studs, you will repeat so much of your work, you would be money ahead to do them now.

Problem is the $. $ 2500 for the cooler-$375 for the radiator- $1700 for the new tranny last month (thats were Im getting the tranny cooler) $400 for the edge monitor that told me I needed all this stuff (that I installed last month) and 4kids worth of school clothes....daddys fun money is gettin abit thin. And on top of that I just bought 5 tons of horse hay. That theirs enought to break ya
And I know the second I pull a head off Im gonna find something and need to get the head done. And in this tiny town that could be weeks. Or need a new head totally and the truck will be in my buddies garage takin up his jeep area...

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?

thanks for your help-its a 2005 I did the coolant flush couple months ago along with the t-stat. And Ive been lookin reel hard at the BPD watre pump. May have to put this all off for another month and buy somemore toys for the truck.

lint free cloths... They MUST be lint free because once you use something that leaves any residue (lint or fibers), you WILL end up with it in your oil and likely clogging your IPR screen. Use a lint free cloth and make sure it is spotless. This is one area that you can't say, "ah, good enough."

I used what I though were lint free cloths and I still ended up with lint and fibers. So I sprayed it down with brake clean and soaked that up and then used duct tape rolled backwards around my fingers and spent an hour picking off fibers until I couldn't see any at all, and then I had my son (with his younger eyes) check it out for me.
