EGR delete ?

I have an 06 f350 6.0 115,000 miles. The egr is out and needs to be replaced. I stopped by a repair shop. They said they weld the two ends of the egr closed and block were the old egr valve is at and it is better than a kit because it has support and will not rattle loose or leak like the kits. They also said the kits are just not flexible like the factory parts to allow for vibration. My question is this better and if this ok why isn't anyone posting on this furom about it?

if its already out ? why not spend another $150 and just put in the kit ? Otherwise you still have water flowing tru it and if it leaks could still push your head gaskets

Most of the kits I have seen have some flex built into them. I've never heard of any problems from anyone doing a delete.

Did that shop happen to mention that you will most likely need a SCT tuner in order to turn off the CEL you'll get from the lack of exhaust flow to the EGR valve.

What they're advising you to do is an EGR block, not an EGR delete. (not in the true sense). As others have mentioned, its a partial solution to one of the 6.0's weak links. However, a full EGR delete is the best option in my opinion.

I have been running my kit for almost 100,000k with no "flexing" issues.
