Help installing egr cooler in Valpo?

Hey all,
I may be installing a egr cooler soon and my funds are kinda low. I may do this at home and save a few bucks but i hear having 2 people to get the turbo Y pipes back on makes it much easier. I dont think I will be doing my oil cooler since it seems to be ok. My deltas are never more then 11 at the most so I dont know why my egr cooler started leaking. I dont know tho, If I find someone to help me I may buy the oil cooler anyways since Ill have everything apart and I will be saving money on the install by doing it at home.
Anyways im thinking it would be nice to have someone that kinda knows these trks to help me out. I have all the tools and I have been working on my own cars for alot of years so I kinda know my way around a engine bay but not so much this engine,Im new to the powerstroke.
I guess Ill just get to the point.. I would like to see if any of you local guys would like to help me do the egr cooler install and Ill pay you some cash and Ill buy the food and drinks. Im thinking 2 people could have this done in 6-8hrs instead of making it a entire day or weekend with me doing it myself. Maybe one of you guys would like to make $100-150 to help me out. None of my friends like to work on cars and none of them really want to help me out here and to be honest they would not be much help anyways besides getting me beers and stuff..
So do any of you want to make a few bucks and hang with a fellow F250 owner......

This job dont look that hard it just looks like it takes time and fitting with the Y pipe takes time I hear but its pretty staight forward from what Ive been reading. The trk dont fit in my garage but we can do this in my driveway.

Any takers??
