The upgraded EGR cooler is relatively inexpensive but stick with the one from BPD rather than a cheap copy. Or, if you don't have emission testing in your neck of the woods you may consider deleting it.
Thanks for all the info, What was the labor cost, or did you do this work yourself. I also just lost my vacuum pump so the repair list is adding up.

There will always be some casting sand in the block but with a proper flush your mechanic will have taken care of that as well. I had never heard of "flushing" and injector so I'm interested in what they do. Sound like they know what they're doing and since you've already done 4 then they probably also replaced the standpipes and dummy plugs with the upgraded OEM parts.
Ditching the "Ford Gold" coolant is a key factor in keeping the EGR and oil cooler from clogging, I have a bone stock 6.0 in my 2005 F350 that i bought new in 2005, at 15k miles I did a full flush of the cooling system and replaced the coolant with Fleetrite ELC and have not had any issues with the truck's EGR system since, mostly using the truck to haul a heavy toy hauler. Being in Cali I don't have the option to do an EGR delete but if I could I would just delete it.

Thanks, this helps out a bunch

12-15 hours is the labor to address the EGR system and replace the oil cooler on a van. That may or may not include cleaning the intake manifold and turbo. Radiator has to come out for the job so replacing the vaccum pump is a no brainer while your in there.
