custom diesel egr delete?????

EGR Delete Kit | Ford EGR Delete Kits | Ford 6.0 EGR Delete Kit | Custom Diesel


Anyone run one of these kits looks like my cooler finally found a way to go to the scrap bin. Need to replace it and not a lot of cash.

Freakin truck seems to like my wallet bein light. Just had to do an IPR valve last week tie rod ends last month along with a complete brake overhaul. God im glad I can spin a wrench.

Once you pull it just weld in freeze plugs on each end save that cash for something else. Many other things to square up once your in that deep.

Kills me I was out running the truck a little hard trying to get the oil temp up to see if I could push the delta out of range for the eot ect. Oil cooler looks great. Popped the egr cooler I believe, going to check a little closer in the morning.

Aren't the coolers 304 stainless? I thought you had to tig 304 stainless. Am I wrong in this? Been known to be a few times more than I like to admit.

The custom diesel kit is almost exactly the same as the sinister kit but a whole lot cheaper. I have the sinister kit on my truck, but have installed 3 of the custom diesel kits. If I could do it over again I would use the custom diesel kit beacause of price. One of the custom kits was on a buddys truck who did the freeze plug thing. He replaced it with the custom diesel kit mostly for the up pipe. Says he noticed better spool up after.

Yeah needless to say I feel like an idiot. The filter material I used to try to seperate the oil out of the off gas just completely loaded with oil blocking the pressure from exiting the crankcase there by pushing it through an oil seal somewhere.

At that price the EGR delete couldn't hurt to do unless you need it for emissions. As for the ccv...I just vented mine to air through a long hose to the back of the truck. Works just fine for me, no smell, and no mess on the driveway.

Its the down time on the truck that keeps me from doing it. Seems the only time I am off work is when its snowing or raining and I dont have a shop to work out of. maybe sometime this summer I'll have time and space to do it.
