Is there any benifit even if I have the egr delete? And is there any install pictures? Someone needs to do a write up of an install.

yes it will keep your oil cooler from getting plugged up and protect your water pump.

I personally got mine from dieselsite.com. Them and FCDP make great kits. It is an important mod. It will save your oil cooler as mentioned above. The install is very easy and the kits will come with directions, with pictures.

I too have the Dieselsite kit. Great quality product and easy to install. You will be shocked when you change your first filter and discover how much sand and grit are circulating through the cooling systems of these motors.

Get one before it's too late and your oil cooler is plugged. Otherwise it's a matter of when - not if, it will plug.

Another good idea is to dump that crap gold Ford coolant and use and ELC like Cat or Rotella or Fleetrite. Then you won't have the silicate buildup in the first place.

But, but Ford says you have to use the gold stuff. Yeah, and International runs them on ELC and doesn't have the problems that Ford has with the oil coolers clogging. Make up your own mind.
