EGR

I'm lookin' for a full EGR delete kit (new). I guess that's the first thing I will start with. The thing is I don't know where it's at on my truck and wouldn't have any idea on how to do it. So I guess I'd have to take it to somebody and let them do it for me. So labor is gonna be a pain!

DIY delete is just more of a pain than its worth. River City Diesel makes a great kit for like 360 bucks and its bullet proof. Thankfully you have an 04 if u didnt u would have to put some sort of box in it because the check engine light ill come on and stay on.


River City Diesel Powerstroke Performance thats the link.....you cant go wrong.

They really ain't that bad. If your close by id give you a hand i live for working on these things. It jus takes time but its way better doing it yourself not only to save money but just working and getting to know your own stuff is way better

I got my RCD delete kit for $250. Just find it on eBay, and click "Make an Offer". They take as low as $250!

How to? Simplisticly here ya go... Remove the turbo and averything on top of the motor. 10 hours later your there. If you do a egr delete, replace the oil cooler, and do studs and gaskets you WILL kick ur self if you don't!

I wish i lived in california too. haha. And head studs arent fully necessary unless u wanna build big power....i have a 60hp banks on mine and have no problems and its been on for 20,000 my buddy has the same one and has had it on for 223,000 both motors and trannys stock. Getting rid of the EGR eliminates 80% of the reason the heads go because of cracked fins caused by heat from a cloged EGR. The only other thing to do is get the intake boiled because usually there is atleast a min. of 1/8" carbon on the inside of the intake. Wen i did it on my dads truck it gave him 2 to 3 mpg better and the motor ran quieter.

Just bought my River City Delete kit on ebay for $250. Anyone in SoCal that wants to install it...???? Let me know. I have plenty of tools at my house. Not sure if I want to take the risk of installing it myself. Somethings are better left to those who know how to.
