EGR cooer/valve delete question???l

Is there any downside at all with the installation of a full EGR cooler/valve delete? I have ask around my area and there are differing opinions. Just thought i would ask the experts! My truck is a 05 F250 with 140 000 miles and I do not want to cause any problems. My up pipe with the EGR flanged is cracked and it seems like a perfect time to do a delete. Any help would be appreciated...............Hillz

FYI - here on the forums under Mod Help there is a fantastic (pictures included) DIY full EGR delete. I had this exact process done. I printed the article and handed it to my mechanic. All done up pretty.

Since then - the only thing I can say is "Finally, whew." My engine runs cooler (I think - or so it should - sorry - no gauges yet to confirm this). Much more dependable and durable.

I spoke to 4 Ford Parts departments - all 4 of them agreed by deleting the EGR system the truck will run better. I have no complaints. Make sure your state is a diesel free emissions state. In other words - doesnt test emissions on diesel's. That would be the only downside.

You can buy alot of great kits online and here on the forum - but its something you can do yourself too and save big money! My entire delete cost me $50. Its a full welded delete.
Anyhow - good luck and dont hesitate to contact us here and post a question.
