2005 6.0 fan shroud importance.....

got mad with the shroud while replacing water pump. clips broke off and removed entire shroud. how important is it for these engines as far as funneling air to radiator? thanks!

Just about the most important thing there is on the cooling system. Without it you will not get enough airflow to and thru the radiator, next to nothing heat exchange for the coolant. The clutch fan is now about useless.

Ya had just as well as shot it between the eyes.

ok I figured it was needed .. already got another on the way. got another bigger issue in that my egr valve is wet and losing coolant rapidly. want to fix prob before it gets to head gaskets. I assume a egr delete is in order. any advice?

Stop running it, or risk head gaskets. Yep, delete, plus oil cooler, plus a monitor. Stay away from two piece egr deletes.

Honestly, check ebay, I got my oem cooler on the way, for $220 shipped, and basic egr deletes are $105.

Yes sir, thats the reason the egr cooler fails, lack of coolant due to clogged oil cooler. That is why a monitor and coolant filter are absolutely necessary also.
