Extreme Duty EGR Cooler

Extreme Duty EGR & Oil Cooler Ford 6.0 Powerstroke F250 - eBay (item 200552913735 end time Dec-18-10 19:50:09 PST)

Has anyone used this particular product? I have a '05 with 86K miles and noticed coolant loss after towing a failry heavy load last week. Only sign of coolant I could find was a little on the frame rail and a coating on the front driveshaft. That being said I think it is time to address the egr cooler and oil cooler. I also have a coolant filter to install and plan on flushing and going back with elc. So back to the original ?? Any experience with this egr cooler? Looks well made and is a good price for egr cooler and oil cooler package. Any feedback/opinions would be appreciated.

Without knowing what has been done with the internals of both coolers it is hard to tell what the quality is. Personally, it looks like a polish OEM cooler with a sticker on it. If you can go with a Bullet Proof EGR cooler.

Well it looks nice.

But I would never put $500 for an egr cooler. I would put the money for arp head studs and instal them myself and tuning that can turn off the egr vlave, (also weld a plug in the egr cooler)increase mpg and power if you want more power.

This has nothing to do with turning off or on a EGR valve, how it looks or questioning if he should spend his money on other toys like the head studs you so mention. The guys asked about the cooler on eBay becasue he believes his is failiing. Secondly the bulletproof EGR is $350 well worth the piece of mind that you will have a EGR cooler that will never fail again.

Good point. I did not explain, I was pusing the thought of stopping the exhaust flow.

I have one installed and I think it great and the part has a lifetime warranty too so it is worth the investment.

Just to clarify, I do plan on doing studs in the near future when I have the time (and space) available. I havent decided if I am going to delete the egr since I do not have the intent of adding tuning. The problem is that I am loosing coolant while towing with a stock truck (with the exception of exhaust) and I want to address the problem areas which, aside from studs, are more than likely the egr cooler and oil cooler. If you look at the pics on ebay the advertised egr cooler has the straight through tube design just like Bulletproofs but is considerably cheaper. I know cheaper is not always better, so looking for some real world experience. Thanks for the comments.

looks the same as the bulletproof cooler. mkmcustoms (sinister) also makes a cooler like that. seems like the cat is out of the bag on these.

For the mean time you can unplugge the egr valve, that will stop the exhasut flow. But not fix the coolant leak.

In the morning, do you see white smoke come out of your tail pipe?
It is either the head gaskets or the egr cooler.
