New to me powerstroke

Hey guys how's it goin? Just bought a new to me 2004 f350 XLT 4x4 6 speed. Shes got a few miles on her but is very clean and very straight. Its got a few problems but I got a pretty good deal on it. The coolant is, not really coolant anymore, but more of a sludge (pic below). I believe it is a bad oil cooler, so I have on the way a new oil cooler, egr delete and a few other upgrades. I've been lurking for a long time, but just finally bit the bullet and bought one. Anyway, glad to be here. Hope to learn a bunch more in the months to come.

Plans for the Future: head studs, up pipes, new turbo / durastroke?, new ball joints/axle seals, 4" exhaust (should be here tomorrow), SCT tuner, 4" lift with black wheels and 35's. Should have all of this done by the end of the year. . . . . . I hope

Thanks,

Will
