Anyone used this EGR delete?

I have not used that one, I have the sinister kit and personally I like the 1 piece design more than that setup, even if it is $100 cheaper.

I would go with RCD, because that is actually their design. Another company that was mentioned here (I will not mention their name) also used/stole RCD's design, so I would support the real maker of this EGR delete. I have RCD's kit in mine and it works great, and it's not much more expensive.

I appreciate the feedback I was already looking at the RCD kit. I just wanted some opinions on this kit. I will be ordering the RCD kit today and hopefully getting my dealer to put it on when they re-install my studs...

So did your EGR Cooler rupture and blow your HG's? That's the only reason I could see why your gaskets would blow with ARP's. Did your Oil Cooler clog and then cause the EGR Cooler to go? Or what? I enjoy hearing these stories

You won't be disappointed with the RCD kit!

I feel ya pain brotha. Mine was completely stock, down to the exhaust, and she took out the HG's, Oil Cooler, and the EGR cooler all at once. That's when the upgrades began

I have this kit, Money is tight and this was the right price, Also, the weld quality is spot on. Good kit for the price.

The materials on this kit must be less than $30-40 to make, so Me paying 299 is out of the question.

I agree with the comment above about the one piece unit as well, I also don't like the idea of capping the up pipe like some of the cheaper kits do, I think that will lead to failed bellows as there is nothing to support that section of the up pipe. Also I bet that RCD did not compensate any of the guys on these sites that did the original crack pipe mods...that is were it really started...

I have not used that kit with the detached pipe like that, but this is the one i used, and it is the same price with free shipping... it looks just like the sinister kit but was sold by Custom Diesel at the time but it is definitely the same kit. I liked it cause it was black and cheap, works great and never had issues.
