Educate me on the Gen2 EGR Delete

I am getting ready to tear into my truck sometime in early January. I am looking at doing a EGR delete, oil cooler replacement, and SCT fitting upgrade. I have started to collect parts for it and was looking at EGR deletes.

Why is this delete better than a lot of the time tested ones out there? It also says it eliminates the oil cooler housing water jacket. Long term would this be an issue? Any education you guys can give me on this would be much appreciated.

just installed mine today, the gen 2 is a true ONE PIECE dsesign, it is a cast piece that has been machined to connect the coolant ports for a leak proof design. it is a very nice peice. it does replace the oil coller coolant housing which is also a two piece design with a o ring seal.

Just installed the IPR delete on my truck 2 weeks ago. It is a superior design to the other deletes. No hoses or orings that will leak. Not the simplest job to do but if you are mechanically inclined go for it. I also did the STC fitting from IPR and a factory oil cooler while I was in there. The toughest job was the intake manifold off. The wiring harnesses was the issue. I had to disconnect and remove the FICM and ziptie the harness forward to access the intake manifold. Good luck on your project.

I remove the ficm harness altogether when the intake has to come off. not worth fighting around it and you risk damaging injector connectors

My plan is to take 2 days and tear it all down so I can do a oil cooler swap and SCT fitting. Plus I want to get the intake manifold off and clean it since it will not crap flowing through it anymore after the egr delete. I plan on getting a new up pipe also to get the scoop out of there. I will have 2 other guys that want to help and access to a diesel mechanics toolbox and a heated garage/barn. I want to do it right, plus I love wrenching on my truck.

IF YOU DO THE GEN 2, folow the directions, and make sure everything is seayed and snug all around before torquing.... i just undid the first 2 injectors and the harness had plenty of room for the intake to come out.
