You need to identify whether or not it is an early 04 or a late 04. The easiest way is by looking to see if the ICP sensor is on the passenger valve cover or behind the turbo.

If it is a late 04, then it will take the later model EGR cooler. The best bet is to buy that from BulletProofDiesel. The OEM one isn't reliable enough to count on IMO.

If you think you can do it after watching Ron on youtube, just get started you will make out just fine.

if the gasket comes off with no sealant install it the same way, i just put a few bolts in the intake and stick the gasket over the bolts underneath, move the intake into position and hand start the bolts checking that the gasket stayed, it will, install all the bolts hand tight before the snug down.
