Which EGR delete and oil cooler kit? also thinking about delaying stud install

Are all the EGR kits created equal? I hear horror stories of coolant leaks with some of them. I also don't know which oil cooler rebuild kit, stc fitting, oil feed/drain tubes, dummy plugs, standpipes to purchase.

I think I'm going to do this without putting studs in right now. Im thinking of paying someone to do the studs since I can't pull the cab or really take the heads off.

Has anyone re-torqued/over torqued factory head bolts with success?

I just put the new IPR EGR cooler delete kit on my truck and feel like I made the right choice. It's the pricier of the bunch, but it doesn't look like it'll give me any trouble.

Re-torquing and/or over torquing stock head bolts is always a bad idea. The OEM bolts are torque to yield bolts, which stretch with the amount of torque applied to them. This makes them non-reusable. Unless of course you run a cash only used car lot and need to do a cheap fix.

As we speak Im in the middle of a full Bullet Proof Diesel oil cooler with winter package with a EGR upgrade. It was same price (egr upgrade or delete) and after talking to the folks at BPD decided to go that route. And Im doing a ARP stud job with out removing the cab, yes I am proof it is possible. How hard you ask? Well I have 5 diffrent burn marks from the drop light...but I now have a fully studded 6.0. Fair trade!

If you're mechanically inclined, go the route I did. I had no way to lift the cab nor did I want to strain my back and take the a/c housing off. I pulled the fan, radiator, and intercooler out and then had the engine out and on a stand in an hour and a half. I bought an engine removal plate on ebay and didn't even remove the grill or hood. It came right out the top. I would not do it any other way. Plus you can upgrade the torque converter while the engine's out.

This VERY true. I have seen first hand now the IPR kit, Sinister kit, and the cheap one from Ebay and (IMO) for the money, I would just spend the dough on the IPR kit. Vince does such a GREAT job with that coolant return piece, it's AMAZING (almost as cool as the BPD oil transfer block). I'm a sucker for machined aluminum.

Yes NEVER re-torque the OEM head bolts as doing so will gain you nothing except lessing the clamping force on the heads. Your only option is to replace them with studs or new bolts (if you loosened them in the first place).
