I can't help you answer your question but I'm willing to come help! I'd like to get a look at what all is involved as well.

Mine is at Bowditch getting a new cooler installed now (2nd time under warranty) After my warranty runs out I want to get rid of mine also.

get a gates 1806 hose and take your old egr cooler out cut all the flanges off and weld them closed cut the pipe off as close to the cooler body as you can and then cut the oring flange off the cooler as close as you can also. weld the pipe to the oring flange and then take the intake ans install the oring flange with the pipe welded on it into the hole in the bottom of the intake. after that bolt the flange that held the egr cooler to the intake in place and weld a support bracket to the oring flanged pipe to hold it in place. just make sure that its straight back. install intake with the old intake gaskets install the blockoff flange in the exhaust and install the hose to the oil cooler and the pipe that you welded up put clamps on the ends filler her up and drive the snot out of it.
