Sinister vs. RCD egr delete.

About ready to order my delete kit and I've narrowed it down to either the Sinister or River City Diesel kits. The kits seem to be basically identical other than the Sinister kit has the anodized blue pieces. I can get the RCD kit for around 85.00 cheaper. So do I save the money to put on something else or is the Sinister kit worth the extra cash.

they're the same thing, you can save some cash and put it towards and upgraded stc fitting (if your '05-07).

I'm looking at one on eBay for 150.00. That's a 149.00 dollar savings..

I have the Sinister kit I had to many problems with their cheap clamps they gave me, so after 3 fixes and 3 new silicone hoses, I got stronger hose and new style proper silicone hose from BREEZE- called a LINER CLAMP worked awsome. Sinister did hook me up with overnighting parts but didnt help. Not bashing them but I would go RCD or maybe just order 2 BREEZE Liner clamps they usually sell they at a marina store or a heavy equipment part store. I got mine at a truck(semi) parts place. PM me if you have questions I about the clamps

or spend the money for a FCDP kit, do it right the first time and not have to worry about it. also it is nice to get a cleaned manifold especially if you have to pull it to install a crack pipe delete anyways.

My RCD is nice, got mine for $185 shipped. Very good quality and so far so good (knock on wood). If you have the money the kit Adam sells (FCDP) is top knotch...

I have not had the same experience you have had with the Sinister kit. It has been flawless with zero problems on installation, it does look like the hose clamps are pretty good quality (updated maybe?).
