EGR Delete and Oil Cooler replacement

Just got finished with this project which was pretty time consuming. I have a few observations and questions.
1-The intake manifold is pretty damn hard to get all of the soot and oil build
cleaned out.
2-The oil cooler rebuild os not difficult to do.
3-I reconditioned the turbo and it was pretty sooty and had some rust build
and the the lever inside was almost frozen inplace, so I am glad I decided
to clean.
4-Hardest part was the fricken uppipes.
5-Why in the hell didnt International put some dowel pins so that
the intake gaskets would nest on the heads nice and easy.
6-Double check the ficm is plugged in all the way mine idled like crap
and 2 of the plugs were not seated a 3 foot screw driver worked
to gently plug the rest of the way in.
7-The turbo seems to build boost much faster.

Re: EGR Delete and Oil Cooler replacement

Now a question----I have a funny howling noize that I am paranoid about, Wife says it sounds like it is sucking more air when I give it more throttle. Any Ideas?

Your wife could be right. Check your up-pipes, CAC tubes, and downpipe

Re: EGR Delete and Oil Cooler replacement

when is the sound happening? during driving or parked?
if around the turbo or pipes, you should find soot leaking out at location.
check by hand when engine is cool

Re: EGR Delete and Oil Cooler replacement

Thanks for the observations man! I've been putting this off myself because it seems like a cascade effect and I keep finding more things I would like to do "while I'm in there" lol.

Re: EGR Delete and Oil Cooler replacement

I took the cold air intake back off, the hot side cac tube and loosened the down pipe and up pipe clamps and the pipes looked very true with no soot. Then I looked at my serpentine belt and it had started to unravel on both sides........soooooo damn it is a chore to get the fuel shroud off. Checked all of the pulleys and the belt tensioner and everything seemed to be in order.
So I will get a new belt at Ford tomorrow and see if that makes a difference.

Leave it off when you are finished changing the belt. Zip tie the fan connector to the shroud that attaches to the radiator.

Re: EGR Delete and Oil Cooler replacement

I left the POS stator or whatever it is called off and damn you can actually get at the belt easily. Still have the funny noise but the power is awesome so guess I will go with it.
