Bullet proofing VT365

We're almost done with New England and are preparing to head back home to Michigan. Before we head home, I am hoping to replace the oil cooler, EGR cooler, and whatever else makes sense while I have it apart. I am looking for wisdom and things to watch for so that I don't screw anything up, and I don't miss something else that I should have looked at or upgraded.

I am going with bulletproof diesel:
Oil Cooler upgrade kit (air cool)
EGR cooler (h-core)
Turbo oil supply and drain pipe
HPOP fitting
Icpr valve screen

You guys think this is a driveway job? Lol

on a CE its probably a driveway job.. the oil cooler you need to have great Top access to the motor.. all things top will come off so you can get at it.. if you are going t otune it with an Orion then I would probably stud it too but stock Horsepower you probably dont need head studs..

be sure to inspect your turbo and its actuator.. make sure everything is nice and clean. . they are known to stick at times.. obviously note any current running issues.. check the Blowby before you start.. if its just a rather slow steady stream of blowby then you are still good on rings.. if you have a puff-puff-puff nautre wit hthe rhythm of the engine coming out of the blowby tube (if it has a CCV capture pull the oil cap while its idling fully warmed up after being driven and watch the blowby)..

puffing nature indicates good possibility of ring issues.. i mention it because a prior bad injector can cause ring seals to fail or pistons to crack..

the big thing with doing anjy engine work is dont let any metal / gasket pieces / tools / screws / debris drop down into the intake ports..
