last Monday the oil cooler took a dump on my 03 filling a 4 or 5 month old degas bottle with oil.
In my search for someone to do the egr delete and new oil cooler I am coming across prices from $900 to $3000.
The highest being the bullet proof diesel oil cooler and delete.This price didn't include new oil and coolant.
The second highest a local place claims they get their delete directly from International and won't do the work unless I purchase the entire cooler not just the rebuild parts.
I had a friend that works at International check into the egr delete.He couldn't find their part number so he called the place to get it.The service guy then tells him it's aftermarket they pay $400 for and they just tell customers they get it from International.This is a part they want to charge me $1400 for and throw in $760 more for the oil cooler.(I have written these guys off completely.Dishonesty and price gouging just because they think they can will never earn my business.)
The local Ford dealership quoted me $1300 and that's with them installing an egr delete that I provide.I will have to pay extra for the elc coolant.
I talked to another F250 owner tonight who had his oil cooler/egr delete done 2 months ago in a town 30 miles away for $900 with the egr delete,elc coolant and all new oil.
I will be going to see the $900 shop tomorrow to see what kind of warranty they offer on the work it it's all legit they will more than likely get my business.If not the Ford dealership in Tifton,Ga will be doing the work.Definitely not the turbo diesel performance shop in Tifton,Ga that lies and price gouges.
