Depends if it's the only thing you're installing. Just the egr delete can be done in half a day. I recommend a new oil cooler with it if it hasn't been done already. How many miles on the truck??

72K..I would like to have both of those things done after reading everything I have about the 6.0.

Lets say you get the EGR taken care of, and the oil cooler taken care of-Once those 2 issues are taken care of are the head bolts that big of an issue if you run a tune? I dont mean a crazy tune just something to get a little better fuel economy and such. It seems to me with everything Ive read that it was the pressure from coolant getting into the cylinders rather than the bolts themselves. Its actually kinda crazy that it stretches the headbolts. Normally-at least in a gasser-when you get coolant in the cylinders you can kiss your connecting rods goodbye.

If you dont mind me asking whats all invovled in removing and reinstalling in doing this job? Do you pull the turbo? The reason I ask is that this truck came from Wisconsin and you know all about the salted/treated roads Im sure. I dont want a stupid rusty bolt to break off in the removal of a turbo---Exhaust bolts of any kind are always brutal let alone without salt corrosion.

Yes, the turbo has to go. The intake has to be unbolted but not removed all the way unless you want to(for the egr delete anyway). A lot more parts have to come off for the oil cooler.

There's no guarantees with a 6oh. You just don't know how it was treated by the PO.

You should get a monitor. EGR failure is usually due to a clogged oil cooler. If ect & eot deltas are under 15 degrees you can wait. If coolant is gold colored, get it out. Should also go with a coolant filter. If you decide to do egr delete/oil cooler, might as well do blue spring upgrade for fuel pressure, stc fitting upgrade, and turbo oil drain line also.

Well I did the coolant swap yesterday. I got some of the Zerex Ec1 back in. It did have the gold crap in it, and suprisily it came out pretty clean.

What is the stc fitting upgrade and turbo oil drain line issues?

stc fitting tends to develop leak on certain years(04.5 to 07 I think?) and it's not that much more work if your in that far. Oil drain line bends not smooth and could clog, not sure if needed on all years.

The STC fitting only needs to be replaced on certain years too I believe. The blue spring is definitely cheap azz insurance for fuel psi
