EGR Delete kit differences
As I'm sure you all can see I am brand spankin new to this forum, and find myself seeking knowledge from the illustrious members here at powerstroke.org. Ok so my computer flashed a code at me the other day, I read in the manual that it was probably EGR related, I took it to Autozone and then to the dealer to verify that the EGR was experiencing flow restriction. Mechanic wanted 2500 bucks to take out the valve and clean it (which I guess was fords fix to this issue for a while). However I do as much with my own vehicle as I can manage and you best believe for 2500 bucks I wasn't letting the mechanic do it. Anyways I read that this was a fundamental flaw with the 6.0, so I started reading up on EGR delete kits. I've decided after reading about them and talking with a few people that I would be getting one and installing it very soon. I am not worried about emissions BS because Im military and no matter what state I'm in I don't have to e-test my truck, (tree huggers can suck on that).
So the real question I have for you all (sorry for the long winded build up) is what kind of kit am I looking for, I mean what is the difference between a basic kit and one that comes with turbo seals, or an oil cooler ETC. ETC. What is the bare minimum I need in a kit to be done with that freakin EGR forever that I can do on my own? I appreciate all of your time and patience.
P.S. Cheap is good too and I already heard Sinister is a knock off of RCD I have that and I don't see a problem, just want to know what works. Thanks again.
