05 F350 6.0L EGR Delete kit

While driving home last night, noticed black smoke from exhaust. More than normal. Turned off on country road and smoke was worse and then went to white smoke. Drove a mile and decided to shut her down. I'm sure head gasket gone. I assume it is time for an egr delete kit. I was browsing on line for kits and found this one.

6.0 Complete Total*Solution for 6.0L Powerstroke w/ SCT SF3 Tuner

Is this a reasonable price??

There is alot of info on this thru the internet. Alot of opinions, which one is best?

Can anyone give me some direction on the best way to approach this problem?

Do I just order kit and get my mechanic to install? Am I missing something?

I have a bullydog tuner. Do I need the programmer that comes with the delete kit?

DO NOT get that kit as it uses Black Onyx head gaskets which have a high failure rate, do a search on the Powerstroke forums and you will see. Only use OEM head gaskets. When you pull the heads they must be completely checked out for flatness and cracks. Any tuner that has the ability to turn off the EGR system will do. I bought a used one to do the same thing on my truck. To make sure your fan clutch will work properly leave the EGR valve electrically hooked up. With mine I bolted the tab on the EGR valve hold down to the right-rear intake elbow bolt so it would not bounce around.

Get the truck on a monitor and see what it's doing. Are you losing coolant?

Could just be the EGR cooler and if it is your oil cooler is restricted.

If your not loosing coolant and it's not not wet around your rad cap I doubt that its head gaskets. Odd that your getting the P0487 code with an '05 as I was pretty sure that the throttle body crap ended in late '04 and only carried over to the '05 Excursions (GAWD I hate Ford for doing that), but anyway, loosen the clamp on the intercooler connection to the intake elbow and remove the four bolts on the intake elbow. Rotate it out of the way so you can remove the two Torx screws and remove the butterfly disk. Put everything back together. I'm thinking the EGR throttle is faulty. Take it for a test drive and see if it still does the same thing. As for the other codes I'm thinking there separate issues.

Exact same kit: 6.0L Ford Powerstroke 6.0 Complete Total Solution w/ ARP Head Studs, Onyx Black Head Gaskets, EGR Delete Kit, and OEM Oil Cooler # 60L-TS - Performance Machine & MFG.

You can choose OEM Gaskets in the drop down, I highly suggest you use them over the Black Onyx.

IMO Don-Key2005 PMM is a good place to deal with.
