Bulletproof EGR cooler upgrade?

In the new parts section of the most recent "DieselPower" they have an upgraded EGR cooler. Built better and stronger according to the company's claims. What do you all think about this?

damn near bulletproof EGR cooler

With the more stringent laws that are coming down for emissions on diesel trucks this seems to be the way to go. I still like the idea of completely removing the cooler thus directing ALL exhaust to the turbo.

kind of how I was thinking too seems like it'd be easy enough, i'd like to see some proof or some testing to show that it is A LOT better than a stock EGR and is also a viable alternative to a complete EGR delete

Well, just by looking as his design it appears to be much better to OEM. He basically addresses the failure issue of the OEM cooler and fixes the problem in his design.

I have installed several bulletproof EGR coolers. theres no question these are much more robust than a stock cooler. a full delete power wise on a basically stock 6.0 would be an insignificant gain, there is no EGR flow during a power enrichment event. egr will flow during steady state cruise, and at idle under certain conditions.

Very good to know. Funny how this information never comes up when a thread is talking about a full EGR delete.
