new 6.0 owner EGR delete ?s

bought my 05 with 101k (has 105K now) and I blew both head gaskets when i was test driving it around before i bought it (it had 101k and a hypertech on it).

I work at the ford dealership i bought it from, and they ended up putting stock studs back in it to fix it and everything and tacked the 3k onto the price of the truck, and took the hypertech off it.

since i have fresh studs (even thought theyre factory), i want to delete the EGR now and then put some ARPs in later when its needed...



How much and what is involved(labor) in ONLY deleting the EGR system?

ps:
near future plans
- 5" straight pipe or 4" dual straight
- zoodad
- SCT
- gauges

Your truck does not have studs. The factory/OEM is a TTY head BOLT. There is a big difference. Since your head gaskets were just done I would do a one at a time replacement of the head bolts NOW while the head gasket is fresh. While you are at it you can do the EGR delete.

But first let me get this straight. You blew both head gaskets while test driving it and BEFORE you bought it, but YOU PAID for the new head gaskets? Whatever were you thinking. They would have had to fix it to sell it to anybody else. I wouldn't have paid the repair bill. If they wanted to add it to the cost of the truck I would have gone and bought a different truck.

I got the truck for trade in price plus the hg work, the dealership made no money off me.

Got it for 19500 after all was said and done, they gave 16500 on the trade.

That 'splanes it. Good luck with the truck and I would still do what I said above.

I understand what your trying to say. If u have a pretty good knowledge of automotive it shouldnt be very hard. I have basic knowledge of stuff like this but I have no idea whats all involved in deleting/welding shut the EGR. But to throw it out there like the original poster asked, How much would a diesel shopw vs. dealer charge to delete/ weld shut the EGR????

Well based on hourly rate of probably what $75 per hour and job would probably take them 4 to 5 hours...what's involved is draining coolant, pull off alternator, turbo, loosen intake manifold bolts and studs, pry up passenger side slip out egr cooler, yank out egr valve, install new part and put new up pipe on exhuast,..sounds like a lot but u have it done in a day..me and buddy had everything tore down in 2 hrs
