Trying to DIY egr delete and up pipe

Hey,

Just wondering what size the piping is for the up pipe I want to make my own and would like to know the correct size for pipe and flanges if anyone knows.

Also does anyone know of a place that sells stainless steel or aluminum u shaped tubing and perhaps the correct size for that as well? I found a place that sells 3/4 inch SS just not sure if its the right size. I can weld Al and stainless so I think it would be way easier and cheaper if me to just weld up the two holes on the mani make an up pipe and the coolant line.

I appreciate the help
Randy

step 1 take out the egr cooler. step 2 weld up both sides of the exhaust portion of the cooler. step 3 reinstall. the egr cooler if welded properly will be ater tight and look stock and fix your problem. not to mention it will be easier and cheaper

Why not just remove your cooler completely and weld up the manifold like the go go diesel manifold, and re route the coolant. Then splice in a piece of pipe and weld the up pipe. Done deal

I am going to weld the manifold up but dont i need to put an up pipe in? thats the why I was wondering what size the up pipe should be so I can get the pipe. also to reroute the coolant I feel safer using a u shaped metal tube rather than hose you know.
I wasnt sure if anybody knew off hand what size the up pipes were from like rcd or fcdp or any up pipe for that matter.

Thanks guys,
Randy

I think it depends on what you have installed now. It is my understanding that there are two types of up pipe. Some have a little scoop inside to drive more exhaust into the egr cooler and some do not. Mine did not have the scoop so the restriction should be negligible. I just left it and welded up both ends of the egr cooler. My cooler is also the 03 tube type cooler. I have heard the newer ones have more coolant restriction??? I don't know.

Also I am told the bellows on the stock up pipes can be prone to failure. I just took the risk and left it.

I didn't measure the size though. Sorry.

Welding up the egr cooler is the most simple way. With that method. You would hook it up with stock parts. It also will look factory stock for emissions as far as a visual would go. The up pipe also would not have to be modified. You could do like the gogo setup but you will have to modify the outlet from the oil cooler and as stated plug the other end of the manifold.

Well, I have an 06 I thought i could do like a fcdp copy and weld the top and bottom of the mani, reroute the coolant line, and then make a straight pipe up pipe. Am I missing something. I want it to be the best result possible. I have the resources and being the broke powerstroke owner I am who likes to tinker I thought I would give it a shot.

Basically weld the two round holes on the top and bottom, and use the u shaped tube to reroute the coolant, and an up pipe right

Thanks
