EGR block off or cooler delete or cooler block off?

What's the difference and which is better?

Is this a decent exhaust system? The price is right!!

I would get a either a 409 or better yet a 304 stainless steel exhaust. They'll last just about forever. That aluminized steel will only last for about 5-8 years depending on where you live and how you drive. Plus the warranty is only 2 years, where the stainless version is lifetime warranty.

As for the EGR cooler, delete it, you'll be glad you did.

By the way - I was looking at the performance series exhaust as well and realized that the aluminized steel is going to rust through before too long, but the price is great.

I was wondering how loud that will be in an EX? I have run exhaust on pick ups before, but the you don't get the sound from the back an Ex will. Can anyone comment on how much louder this would be in an Ex vs. a CC truck?

Hopefully OP does not mind the question, I am looking at the same system.

I had my egr delete done when my head gaskets were being replaced.

I made my own egr delete to save some money, so far it's one of the best things I did.
