Question EGR delete pros and cons?

I also have this thread posted in the general discussion, Just dont want you all to think Im advertising or somethin.

A friend of mine has an '03 F250 cc 4x4 6.0L auto, The EGR went bad and he is considering getting a delete kit for it.
Just curious if anyone on here has any input on the pros and cons? Does it effect the longevity of the engine?

The kit they looked at was from bulletproofdiesel.com $1600

A local diesel Mechanic told him that he could delete it/ bypass it for $600 and didnt need a whole kit? What he meant by that I have'nt a clue? But apparently he can do it, and a guy I spoke with had it done by him and is going on 4 months now.
Your input is greatly appreciated! Thanks - Drew

You should absolutely delete the EGR and EGR cooler. It will greatly improve the longevity and reliability of your engine. When you do the EGR delete, make sure that you replace/rebuild your oil cooler, as it will likely be clogged with crap from the cooling system.

Ford typically will not install EGR deletes.

The only con that I can possibly think of is that it will make the truck take a little longer to warm up in the winter time, but that isn't really a big deal. Also, it will increase your NOx emissions.

Bulletproof Diesel does not offer an EGR delete, they offer a better version of the EGR cooler for $375. The OIL COOLER they sell is $1600. A good EGR Delete will range from $250-$600.

We offer a delete also. We just don't push them.

You can. You need to be able to weld stainless steel. And you also need to make sure the material you add is thick enough.

It will turn on your check engine light and if you do it wrong, you could mess up your 6.0. We get a few of those here every now and then.







For the record.... This is the WRONG way to do it.
