To oil cooler delete or not and what is general opinion on egr deleting?

Okay I have been reading and researching. I'm going to do the Egr delete, cooler and coolant flush. All really for preventative measures really. I'm trying to decide on what egr delete, oil or delete as well and what company to use for parts. Been looking at Sinister and Bullet Proof. What are your opinions on the two companies and doing the delete is it a must to get a tuner? If I do that is that opening myself up for future HG problems?

I don't want tons of power, i am building this truck for travel. Comfort and economy. I will also be burning Bio and possibly black diesel.

Thank you in advance for your thought and suggestions.

Mike

As long as you have no emissions testing, delete the egr. You can use a factory oil cooler, just flush it out now and install the cooler later to help from clogging up a new cooler. The bpd is the king of the mountain, quite a few of us have it and love it, but you will pay dearly for it. You never run the risk of clogging it up, so that makes it a once and done deal.

EGR delete is a must do for the 6.0 people. Oil cooler deletes are proven to make money.

I strongly doubt that BPD is getting rich off the markup on the remote oil cooler. I think it is pretty fairly priced as those that have tried it on their own have found out. I am very happy with mine.

Is it an absolute necessity? Only if you want to put oil cooler issues behind you once and for all.

How do you guys feel about the BPD oil bypass kit? If I am understanding it right that is deleting the oil cooler and placing a second filter on the truck. I know it's not the Relocation kit, but it's $1200 less expensive.

Last I checked the coolant was clogging the oil coolers. SO if one were to make a routine coolant flush part of their maintenance then the issue is resolved.

Can't argue with that logic.
