Bulletproof EGR and Oil cooler question

I'm looking at trading in my 1999 7.3 for a 2006 with a 6.0, the price is right it's a solid truck and worth the deal i can get IF it's had one of the aftermarket solutions done. And that is my question, is there a way to tell or identify if the truck has a BPD or othe aftermarket EGR valve, EGR cooler or BPD oil cooler? I have a 2004 6.0 also that i have bee through the whole EGR problem with. I had the EGR delete done on it which has worked great but it seems that is being frowned on now. I think if it has the "stock" EGR system it would probably be a deal breaker for me as paying for parts and laybor for the legal fix would just make the deal not worth it, it's a good deal but not $4,000+ good.

I haven't heard of an aftermarket EGR valve..usually they are removed from the intake, a block off plate is installed and the valves are zip-tied to something.

You can easily tell if it has the BPD kit on it. Check right in front of the turbo. If you see a masterpiece of machine work with two 3/4 inch hoses coming off of it, it has it.

A BPD EGR cooler will be near impossible to tell from a stocker without taking it off....

thanks, i don't know why i put that about the EGR valve in there, i guess i've just been thinking about it to much today trying to make a decission. Ran a carfax on it earlier and came back branded salvage so deals off anyway. I have to say they did a nice job making it look good but i aint paying $15,000 for a 6.0 that has a salvage title.

If you take the plastic cover that inbetween the grille and the radiator on top, you will clearly see the BPD oil cooler... Plus there will be a few 3/4 running past the radiator and behind the a/c condenser. Also, you should have a line tapped into the oil fill cap for the engine oil.

FYI- You can also spot head studs on the outside of the cylinder heads... Either cylinder head closest to the radiator and exhaust. You should see a stud coming out of the block with a nut over it. Stock has regular bolts.

Only if it has a bypass oil filtration.

, I'm sorry. NYC F-350 is correct. Couldn't he take the oil filter cap off and verify there is no filter? BPD just came out with the kit that utilizes the factory filters, correct?
