egr block vs. egr delete

Hey everyone i know there is a difference between the delete and the block off kit. But what is involved in the two? Having a mild tune would it be okay with just a block? I guess I dont understand what a block kit does. If you block of the egr, the gases do not run through the cooler anymore? so it keeps the coolant cooler? The EGR valve still is on the truck. But the cooler is still there so it could leak, and that is how they fail right? the EGR delete kit gets rid of the cooler all together. Can anyone help me fill out some miss information or pictures would be awesome. Thanks

The block is just a plate in between the cooler and up-pipe blocking the exhaust flow into the cooler. Only doing this means that the cooler can still fail and cause damage(it happened to me). Doing the full delete removes the cooler alltogether and is the best route to go. Most delete kits do not remove the egr valve in which case you would be best to have it welded shut because it can still open under pressure and cause problems...Or you could go after the FCDP delete kit which removes both the EGR valve and cooler.

where do you find a egr delete kit at? the one which doesn't remove the valve because my father owns a machine shop so he could machine me a piece that i could just bolt in place of the egr, or just have the plate welded in.

Elite diesel has a kit and so does Liberator performance. Or you could just make your own since you have access to a shop...there is a link in the tech section with instructions on how to make your own.

Mine was done by Scuffy828 here on the Org when my heads got replaced but it does take some time since you have to tear everything off the top of the engine including the intake to get it done.

Check out Welcome To DieselTech1.Com 's full delete kit. I called them today and said it was $560 shipped including intake gaskets and a complete kit. A little high but most ones I've found run $400-$600 and this looks to be a nice kit with no rubber hoses to collapse on the 180 degree bend and has a nice machined plug for the EGR valve and a cap off plate for your up pipe

mine has a rubber hose and I will assure you, it wont collapse, the only one that has that risk is the one's that have the pre shaped rubber hose, which most people dont use.

for 15 dollars more you can have our EGR delete kit with a cleaned intake manifold, welded and pressure tested
