Talking Bulletproof egr delete vs upgrade

I am looking at the egr delete, but after reading other threads about egr valve and throwing codes I am considering getting the upgraded egr cooler from bulletproofdiesel.com. Anyone have comments about this option. I am getting ARP studs and oil cooler to add to the AFE intake, cat back exhaust and Edge Juice with attitude that I already have. Any other suggestions on mods would be appreciated as well!!!


I have a 2004 and my wife gave me the go ahead to spend some money!!!

The 04 doesn't throw codes. I have heard good stuff about the upgraded coooler but, I want mine gone so I bought a kit from RCD. The kit from sinister looks nicer than RCD but I got my RCD off ebay and saved a ton!

It's a great upgrade and you won't have to worry about it again.

I think I am going to go with the bulletproof egr cooler vs delete for the emissions issue. Is there a need for a coolant filter if I do the oil cooler and egr upgrade?

On another note, when I have my edge on 5 there are times when I am at low RPMs and I hit the gas some times it wont react for about 4 to 5 seconds. If I am coasting at low RPM it will also lunge like it is not getting enough fuel. Could this be a turbo issue or an injector issue?

I would do the EGR cooler, rebuild the oil cooler and get a coolant filter and that will fix you up....its also a prooven upgrade vs the external oil cooler offered by bullitproof.
I have read they are still having some R&D issues with the external oil cooler setup.

Skip the Edge and the catback exhaust.

Do a full turbo back exhaust with a cat delete and slip your cat back in whenever you need inspection.

And for the tuner, get some gauges and an SCT with custom tunes All that Edge is gonna do is tear your tranny to heck.

I like turbo back exhausts but a cat back will do you fine too.

DOn't waste your money on a intake. You stock one filters great and flows plenty of air.

This is what I have read regarding the Bullet Proof external oil cooler. The OEM oil cooler is better in colder climates as it will actually warm the motor oil when cold. Personally I would stick to an upgraded OEM oil cooler with coolant filter system as added insurance against plugging the oil cooler with casting debris.

4 inch turbo back exhaust, no cat, no muffler is my preference. I have kept the stock intake on both my 6.0's. I went with a true flow high flowing foam air filter. It has lasted many miles without a problem.

Also- SCT is the way to go. EGR options there as well. Isn't an sct with custom tunes, cheaper and safer than the others? Never bought or looked into anything else but my sct.
