UPDATE on all the repairs on my silver pig

For those that didn't catch my thread on all the problems I had with my "new to me" F350, I finally got her all patched up and running like new. I can certainly say I learned a lot about diesels in the process and to

NEVER EVER EVER EVER TRUST PREVIOUS OWNERS

Now coming from driving Tacomas for years, I knew my trucks inside and out, but diesels were something new so I was learning as I went. Short story, the previous owner of my truck must have been on crack and I wasn't smart enough (at that time) to catch it.

So here's what I replaced so far:

Injector Gaskets
Oil Cooler
EGR Cooler
EGR Valve
Thermostat
Brake switch
Turbo bearing
Resurfaced turbo plates

Biggest "Oh !@#$%" moment i had was when i drained the coolant and it was green Paid Ford to flush and debride it as I wanted a really clean start.

Just wanted to thank everyone on here for all the tips and How-to threads. not my first mechanical rodeo but definately a first for diesel. Runs now like a raped ape, so again, thanks y'all.

I got a few messages saying I should have done the EGR delete. Now, is this something that I can bolt on and the computer will sort itself out or do I need to have it tuned?
