06 6.0 head gaskets

so I have noticed I've been blowing some white smoke come to find out from the dealer its my head gaskets (as was expected)... so im going to do arp head studs and would it be worth to have an egr delete done with an 06, ive heard on 05 and up that egr deletes shoots a code. would it be better to do a bulletproof egr or delete is basically my question.

stock truck with a 4"turbo back mbrp straight pipe into an 8" stack
66k miles

~thanks, Dave

Depends on your states laws. Personally if your state allows it I would delete it. The bulletproof parts are awesome but nothing's better than getting rid of the egr completely, keeps the already burnt exhaust out of the combustion gas makes for a much better burn!

No problem! It may set off a code, but a tune on an sct tuner can turn it off. I live in PA and diesels are completely emissions exempt here.

Okay... What would be the full list of little things to do ill do some pricing out because I can't go crazy with the budget it didn't save for this it was unexpected but that list would be awesome I'm liking to get all the items done first time the engine is apart lol or most of the major components.
Thanks
Dave

Lucky you. So was I till about 3 years ago in California where they made new law and grandfathered it since 1998.
Too bad I have 4 diesel made in 1998-2000.
Wait till PA will follow ( as usual).
The head gasket part list doesn't look user -friendly at all. Anybody made realistic total?
My 6liter is camper vehicle used few time a year and I am not looking forward in doing modifications exceeding purchase price.

I personally like the sinister EGR delete kit. It will just throw a code but with the right tuner that will go away. So far I am a huge fan of the SCT Livewire TS
