With those temperatures, I would only flush w/ distilled water. Don't think a chemical flush is necessary.

I was kinda thinking the same thing. It seems to be flowing well, so I don't want to take the chance of messing something up getting crazy with the flush. Hopefully a couple of fill and drains with distilled water will get all of that Motorcraft Gold out of there.

You will probably need more than a couple, even if you open the block drains and take off the lower radiator hose.

Here is something to consider regarding the flush. My ECT/OT numbers were very close to yours. I decided not to use VC9 or Cascade to clean the system. I flushed it like crazy with a garden hose, pulled both block drains multiple times, ran it a bunch without the thermostat in. I then flushed it a couple of times with distilled water, then topped off with Rotella ELC. That was at least 10K miles ago and my temps have not changed at all.

You're probably right. But, one can hope, right?

LOL, I know how much is retained in the engine after you open all the drains. You can get maybe 4 gallons out and it holds 7. Straightforward math after that!

After 2 drain and fills, you will still have 1.3 gallons of the old stuff in, and that is if it is well mixed after the first drain and fill.

The garden hose continuous flush works better to get the old coolant out, but you still need to flush 3 times (IMO) to get the hose water out.

I got the EAS Fuel pressure and EGT sensors for my CS2. The install on the fuel pressure sensor seems pretty straightforward. I already ordered the thread adapter and 45* elbow from Glow Shift.

I am not as confident about installing the EGT probe. Do any of you have pictures of exactly where you installed it? Or perhaps any tips or tricks I should know prior to drilling into my exhaust manifold all willy nilly?

It's just a hole, what could go wrong? LOL

Put a magnet by the spot you drill to catch any shavings that might get into the manifold. When you're done, get a shop vac to the hole and and remove the magnet to pull those shavings out. Do the same when you tap the hole. That's about it.

I don't have any pics of my EGT location, but it's on the rear drivers side manifold, on the bottom. I used the Glowshift adapter on my fuel press. and it's worked just fine. Here is how I plumbed mine (disregard the extension and socket on the t-stat housing):
