6.0 EGR Delete Kit

What does a EGR kit gain you on a stock 2004 f350? I have straight piped the truck and it has and a K&N air intake but the rest is stock.

I bought an 06 6.0 about three months ago and a few of my powerstroke buddies have been pushing for me to get an egr delete since i bought a tuner.. i think they said to try to keep from blowing the head gaskets. Does this sound right? Also didn't know if there were any other issues that might come up from this truck such as hpop or injectors, or if ford had this figured out by 06?

Im not having any problems but someone told me to get a delete kit if i get a sct tuner but i was wondering what the delete kit would gain me alone, if it would blow anymore smoke without the tuner

it will get you some piece of mind.

plugging of the stock oil cooler from the crap ford coolant starves the egr cooler of the coolant it needs to cool the exhaust gases. the little that does make it through can flash boil (steam) and rupture the cooler which will dump coolant into the cylinders. coolant in the cylinders will lift the head gaskets.

so, what does the egr delete get you? you be the judge.

That's just it, doing the EGR delete now will only help prevent trouble down the road.

if it ain't broke now (i.e. no p-codes, oil & egr coolers working, etc.) it would seem to me there is no reasoning for doing an egr delete for "preventative" measures. why not wait until your oil cooler starts to crap out OR these other symptoms start appearing and then do the egr delete??

my buddy has a '03 F-250 w/ 170k miles, all factory & runs bulletproof...i have a '06 F-250 w/ less than 60k miles and the dash is like a christmas tree w/ indicator lights telling me; need new oil cooler, replace egr valve & cooler, etc. in this case, i'm a good candidate for egr delete and he his not.

much cheaper to delete the egr and rebuild the oil cooler before it affects the head gaskets.
