Got my EGR Delete!!!!!!

Finally got my egr delete today and now I'm gonna go get a new oil cooler since I'm gonna be this far into it anyway and since I'm gonna be this far anyway, I might just as well got an Airdog II and get it over with. Now all I need to do is wait for a couple of open days in my shop so I can tear into it!!! Hopefully she'll start to run better. 192k on the clock is a good run for and egr cooler and oil cooler. I'm surprised it lasted this long Just wish the injectors could've lasted this long

Well got my truck tore apart today, Found the problem. I took my egr cooler off the intake and poured oil out of the coolant side. But the weird thing is that I had no oil in my degas bottle. Now I gotta wait til Monday to pick up a new cooler. So since I got this thing apart, I'm gonna get some things painted. Plus I was cussing out the engineers who designed this dang thing. But after a couple of beers and a couple of shots of SoCo, everything went fine

Right on. 192k is a good run. Sounds like your gonna keep this truck a while. Hows everything else holding up? How long have you had the ARP's installed?

Yea I gotta keep the truck cause I owe too much on it. Still have the original tranny in it yet(knock on wood) still shifting great. This is the first issue the truck has ever had with the egr. I looked at the oasis. I've had the ARP's in it since 90k.

Let's see here: Remove the air intake, I found it's easier to just remove the batteries, pull out the drivers battery tray to get to the IC boot, remove oil filter housing and fuel bowl, intake horn, remove downpipe, disconnect Y-pipe, remove the alternator. Having all this out makes it 100 times easier to remove the turbo. No snaking it around. Just pull forward and it's out. Remove the right bank of injector harness and fold it to the left. Unbolt the intake and keep track of where the studs are. There are 2 bolts on the front of the intake that hold the fan shroud that are 15mm. After all this is done, you can pull the intake out. I just cut the hose that goes from the oil cooler to the egr cooler. Remove the 10 10mm bolts aroound the oil cooler and use a pry bar and pry up on the oil cooler. Just remember to drain the oil before you do this. I didn't and it made a nice mess in the valley. Now I just need to get a new oil cooler and reverse the process.

Well I've been takin a couple of days to do this after work but total hours I have about 4 hrs into it. It wouldn't have takin me a little less time but you know how things go when you have a community shop and you have to search for tools. I have an S300 turbo and I needed a stubby 15mm couldn't find one so I had to fabricate my own. But all in all it's actually pretty straight forward to accomplish. I even had time to paint a couple of pieces.
