EGR cooler fix, 6.0

I am a farmer/rancher, with various vehicles, and have a ranch truck that doesn't go on the highway - strictly farm/offroad use. Here is a pic of what was done to the stock EGR cooler that failed. It was pressure-tested to 100psi. You should be able to find a welding shop to do this for about $60 - $90 (it's stainless). Coolant flow was great, and there was no buildup or gunk in the fins or cooler at all.

My oil cooler was A-OK, but it was replaced anyway while everything was apart. Head gaskets and everything else appears fine, although the FICM apparently is going out (harness was replaced 30k back, so that's not it).
