EGR delete

Hey everybody. My friend has an 04 F350 6.0 liter and is having some problems with his egr valve. The valve is pretty expensive and he is thinking about getting a delete kit for it. Is there anything else he is gonna need to change such as programing or anything like that. Also what are the pros and cons of doing this. I have a 7.3 so i dont know to much about the 6.0 any input would be appreciated. Thanks

Go to that nifty little search tab up above, type in something along the lines of "Delete" and enjoy

He will need a custom tuned SCT with the egr delete.

'04 shouldn't throw a code, should it? Or at least not set the CEL? I'm new to these diesel thingys, but have been doing MUCH reading about the EGR delete (mine's an '04 with 78XXX on it) and if I actually do it I was pretty much counting on not needing a tuner for the light.

Yea or nay?

Mine's an 04 and does not throw a check engine light (or any codes) after installing the EGR delete kit.

I got an 03 and I just got done with the delete kit after a week of waiting on new intake boots, but do the delete kit, rcd also makes a good delete kit, and I fixed an oil leak from my oil cooler, fixed my smoke switch, cleaned the turbo and anti seezed the unison ring and vgt fins, also put the upgraded drain tube, intake elbow, did the ccv mod. It all was a lot easier because everything was out of the way and easier to get to, doing the egr delete I would remove the back bolt on the turbo first i made the mistake of taking the front out and it took me two days to remove it, invest in carb cleaner PB Blaster antifreeze destilled water trans fluid and time. It really isn't that hard it's fustrating. But if it goes well it should only take 8-10 hours. And clean ur turbo while it's off, it's a pain but I was only getting 22psi before with canned tunes but now I'm getting 34psi and it runs better. And the 03-04 won't run and p codes or cel codes when the egr is unplugged or removed completely.

Sorry for the long post...
