If you are not going high end and changing intakes I would look at the differences in these two kits.

I like this one and this is what I run because the coolant hose is an intergral part of lower intake block off (in blue) and it comes with a stainless replacement for the EGR up-pipe.



I don't like this besause of the lack of the up-pipe and the cheesey way the coolant tube is sercured (well sort off) to the intake. It does have intake gaskets but they are reuseable. I'd rather have the up-pipe.

if your deleting the cooler then you need a new up pipe that deletes the opening that would normally feed the cooler. the benefit is all the exhaust going to the turbo like it should.

i also have the Sinister diesel EGR delete kit. i love it. It was super easy to install and my up pipe still looks new after 10000 miles. very quality materials in my opinion.
