I just thought of one more question for you, is the aftermarket cooler or coolers under the manifold on a 6.0 worth their beans versus the stock ones? I got my coolant filter system at 70k and it is up to 150k now, I'm thinking sooner or later they are going to need changed, unless I got lucky !
There are other very viable options out there for the guy's down in CA. I understand that CA drivers are limited, but luckily BPD makes a very good egr cooler upgrade that is a tubular style engine coolant/oil flow versus the stack-on-plate design. And better yet, it WORKS.

YES! The oil cooler is well worth the extra money because you have two options:
1. Support your factory/existing engine oil cooler with additional cooling in case the one in the valley of the engine fails.
2. Eliminate the problematic valley oil cooler entirely and go to an air/oil cooler setup. No more worrying about a clogged oil cooler, no more engine engine coolant being used to cool engine oil, and no more cheesy cartridge filters; just good ole' spin on oil filters like the 7.3's had.

I had mine painted at a body shop. Came out really nice. No more black flakes on me.

EGR delete is illegal in good old CA. When they do the visual inspection they look for the egr and any check engine lights.

With regards to the oil cooler in CA. Need to check the exempt section of the smog manual or it must be approved by the EPA. Any add on that changes the operating temp of the engine has to be EPA approved is what the EPA told me.
