Thumbs down IPR Gen 1 or IPR Gen 2?

I'm getting deltas of 16 - 18* on my 2006 F350 ( just turned 50,000 miles), so I'm planning on installing the IPR Remote Oil Cooler Kit within the next couple of weeks. I also plan to install the IPR High Flow Coolant Kit. I spoke with Vince at IPR, and here are my options:

1. If I install the High Flow Coolant with Manifold Kit, then I have to go with the Gen 1 EGR Delete--the Gen 2 EGR Delete is not compatible with the IPR coolant manifold.

2. If I install the High Flow Coolant kit only (with NO manifold), then I can go with the Gen 2 EGR Delete.

So, what's better--the Gen 1 EGR Delete option or the Gen 2 EGR Delete option? What are the pros and cons of each option? Anyone have any ideas?

I think you are going to have to have Vince answer this for you. However, considering that regardless of the EGR delete kit that you go with, you are still filtering the coolant after the oil cooler, which is less advantageous than if you could filter it before the cooler; I would recommend making the decision based off the EGR delete kit you like rather than the coolant filter. Both coolant filtering options won't prevent you from ever having a clogged oil cooler again and since you are using their oil cooler relocation kit, swapping out oil coolers in the future should be a breeze.

I guess I said all that to say that if it were me, I would go with the Gen2 kit because I feel it is the best EGR delete kit ever made for a 6.0. JMO of course.

Thanks for your input, Nate. I spoke with Vince, and he suggested that I go with the coolant manifold/Gen 1 option. However, one of the complicating factors is that I already purchased the Coolant w/ manifold kit but haven't installed it. The coolant w/ manifold kit appears to be a somewhat more difficult install than the coolant w/ no manifold kit, and I want to get it on my truck ASAP. I wont have the time to do the Remote Oil Cooler install for two or three weeks. So, I was asking Vince about returning the coolant w/ manifold kit and ordering the coolant with no manifold kit along with the Remote Oil Cooler Kit and Gen 2 EGR Delete. Vince was happy to accept the return, but then suggested that I keep it and get the Gen 1 Delete. My uninformed impression is that the IPR Gen 1 Delete is similar to other Delete products available, but that the IPR Gen 2 is greatly improved and is state-of-the-art compared to any other delete unit on the market. If its just a matter of "six of one and a half dozen of the other" then I'll go with what Vince suggested. However, logic tells me that the Gen 2 was developed for a reason--because its better than the Gen 1. Please keep in mind that I know just enough to be really dangerous under the hood of my truck! Your thoughts?

i recently spoke with vince about this similar issue. i went gen 2 due to the coolant filter running inline with the heater, if the deltas go up, you can opt to only lose heat, but running the manifold means you have to really watch deltas, and when the coolant filter clogs, up goes oil temps.

Thank you, Shawn. I've pretty much decided to go with the Gen 2 EGR Delete option. Just makes more sense, especially with the excellent point you made about managing deltas.
