Best way to charge the coolant system is to get it full of distilled water, drain it all out, add 3-1/2 gallons of CONCENTRATED ELC coolant, then top off with more distilled water. Total system volume is around 7-1/8 gallons.

Some other parts you might want:
-Intake manifold gaskets. They are reusable but I didn't want to risk them failing and having to pull it all back apart
-EGR Cooler gaskets. If you still have one I would go ahead and replace them, along with the little blue hose.
-Upgraded Turbo Drain Tube
-STC Fitting on the HPOP if it hasn't already been done
-IPR Valve screen. I would at least pull the valve and inspect.
For these kinds of random parts I just go thru Riffraff. Their website is super easy to find what you need:
