Red face EGR Cooler Delete Kit???

My EGR cooler went...4 wheel parts offers a EGR delete for a 6.0L with install for around $800. A diesel shop in Houston said the labor would be $1275 alone, he said the EGR delete kits that don't require to remove intake (probably 4WP) leak, so they don't mess with those. What is good EGR delete kit, that won't leak. I don't need anymore problems!!

Thanks

First Coast Diesel Performance -Full EGR Delete Kit- Your Source For Powerstroke Performance


Go there, buy that kit, and kiss your EGR troubles goodbye.

If I were you, I would do the studs while I was that far down into the motor. I had my EGR delete done on my truck a while back, and now I am putting studs in it. I really wish I had just done it all at once. Just a tip, good luck with whatever decision you make.

That looks nice! Just curious, couple things:
Did you DIY? Easy? I'm fairly good with a wrench
How long have you had it on?

I did not do it myself, I can tear a quad apart and put it back together in no time, but I don't trust myself working on my truck.

The guy that done mine, it took him about 6 hours to do it is what he told me( it was the first egr delete he had ever done, and actually the first 6.0 he had ever worked on ). It has been on about a year. I am pretty sure there are instructions floating around somewhere that can lead you through the installation.

FCDP makes a good kit as many on here will tell you...also check out GOGO diesel...they have a pretty bad a$$ kit too....If you wanna go a little cheaper route check out the sinister diesel kit that is sold on ebay....looks good and alot of guys here have them on their trucks and say good things about them...

Anyone of the above mentioned kits should do you well...just make sure whatever kit you buy is a COMPLETE delete kit

That is over 200$ per hour you can probably do it yourself in a day.

You can get a basic EGR delete for around 300$ and elbow grease is free.

Quoted from above..."He said the EGR delete kits that don't require to remove intake (probably 4WP) leak, so they don't mess with those."

They are bolt on ...same as your OEM EGR cooler and up-pipe...so I'm not buying that they leak....if they leak, then someone isn't installing it correctly. Although not removing the intake and cleaning it properly is a mistake anyway.
