ON the .ORG your street cred goes way up!!

You will help prevent any EGR cooler failures which can save you the cost of a head job on the 6.0. When modded the exhaust gases go right to the turbo increasing the spool of the turbo. Burning all the soot out the pipes inside of into the intake manifold may help keep the oil a tad cleaner.

EGR:

These systems are designed for hot exhaust gasses to enter into the intake manifold. So, all the soot and crap that you see coming out your tail pipe, is what is going into your engine.

In addition to that, exhaust gasses are hot and they increase the charge air temperature. By increasing the air temp, you have less oxygen, which means less power and less oxygen means richer air/fuel mixtures resulting in slightly hotter temperatures.


One thing to remember, EGR usually works in low to mid rpm range and low to mid demand ranges. So, you won't notice any top end power increase, but it will feel like you have another 50 horsepower down low.

In addition, as HeavyAssult mentioned, most would recommend getting rid of the cooler at the same time. This will help prevent failures, which lead to expensive repairs.

they have blocker plates... but it doesnt fix the issues... its like putting a bandaid on and getting in the shower... it may work once or twice but then its done....


getting the delete will lower EGT's, spool the turbo quicker, give you more reliability, cleaner oil, cleaner intake manifold, colder air for more power... and the list is never endeding.... what is the downfall of an EGR, if the dealership wants to be an *** about it, it can void the warranty... thats the only downfall

Another advantage is cooler coolant temps, some have reported 40-50 degree cooler temps since the coolant isn't having to go through the EGR cooler and cool 1000 degree exhaust gas fumes

One of the biggest benefits is that you are violating federal EPA laws, so now you can consider yourself an outlaw, makes you feel all dirty and stuff lol!

EGR Delete

It will void your warranty according to my service tech. if you do a partial which is welding it shut or if a full delete kit is installed. It is also against fed. emission laws as someone stated. In my state they don't check but in other States like CA. they may force you to put all the parts back in if they catch you in one of there emission check stations. Some states require your vehicle to be inspected every couple of years. It could be expensive depending on where you live. But from everything I hear it cures most problems with the 6.0. I will wait till my warranty runs out and probably due the full delete kit.
