It will help but there are no gaurantees. It takes a major fail point out of the equation.

so you think that it would help me for a lil while the guy told me it would help because egr coolers are the reason for head gasket failure

As I said, removing the egr cooler eliminates one of the big problems areas of the 6.0. Yes a bad egr cooler can contribute (and does) to failed head gaskets. But it is not the sole reason that head gaskets fail.

Yes it is a good idea to delete it.

There are a lot of smart and helpful people on this board. That's one of the reasons I hang out here. There isn't as much drama as there is on some other boards. If I know an answer I'll post it. If I'm not sure I won't put it out there. I learn new stuff here all the time. I guess it helps some that I have been wrenching on stuff for about 40 years.
