Not very hard
Yes, the cab stays on, it isn't anything like head gaskets
Pick one. They are basically all the same. Don't be the guy dropping 280 bucks on a delete when a 180 kit will do. What is your definition of "BEST?"
I went with the cheapest one I could find, right off e-bay. Look for a seller by the name of dicad-solutions. It will run you about $150 or so. That is the kit I installed on my truck and have had no unexpected problems. The one thing I will say is that the kit has recently been coming with a "second rate" length of hose. If you are willing to spend about 2 dollars at an autoparts store to get a quality heater core hose (less than 1 foot of it) you shouldn't have any problems with the kit either.

I do not recommend installing an egr delete kit without knowing what the health of your oil cooler is.

I searched for dicad-solutions and came up empty, there are other sellers though. Everything that I have read says that I need to leave the EGR plugged in and in the manifold to avoid complications with the cooling fan. So, all my delete kit needs is the up pipe and the cooler re-route.

Keep in mind if you install an egr delete on an 05 you might have a check engine light that you will have to contend with. The need for a SCT tuner and custom tunes will come into play...

Yeah, I've been talking to Mike at Gearhead about my SCT tunes...he didn't say anything to me about it, but I have heard that he writes it into the tunes to deal with the CE light as long as you have an EGR delete.

Yep Matt is the man when it comes to custom tunes!! I know that guys talk about running SAFE tunes with no studs, but not sure Im convinced. Seems like anytime you start bumping power it could cause issues down the road, unless the motor is built for it.

Egr delete is not hard. Curious what is your ect/eot delta? If I was going that far I would put in a new oil cooler unless I knew it was near perfect.

Btw are you in Covington Michigan?
