IPR Full Flow Coolant filter and EGR delete review
Just finished putting studs, new oil cooler, EGR delete, IDP long y-pipe, blue spring, 6.4 banjos, and some other little items in my brother in laws new to him 2005 CCSB.
IPR coolant filter-
-nicely machined pieces
-flimsy bracket for filter housing
-cheapest of the cheap hose clamps supplied
-very minimal length of heater hose supplied, dont make a mistake
-hose clamps under turbo, feeding from oil cooler, are dangerously close to rubbing both the FICM & Engine harness. I wrapped them in slit rubber hoses for protection
-adding this protection made putting the turbo oil feed line back in place difficult
- no instructions at all, not even a crappy photocopy of pics
Overall I would score it 6 out of 10, before seeing how it performs.
IPR EGR Delete (no idea what version, too many to keep up with)-
-again, nicely machined parts
-no o-ring supplied for intake coolant passage to delete tube- WTF? reused the old one
-no hose supplied for oil cooler to egr delete tube- WTF? did the job in my shop, luckily I have 20 different kinds of hoses on the shelf for marine engines
-no hose clamps supplied
-no EGR valve block off plate- this bothered me the most, why wouldnt you have this in an EGR DELETE KIT?!
-no gasket for the EGR to intake block off (where EGR cooler used to bolt on), seriously? you cant even throw in a cheap aftermarket gasket? i used black hi temp RTV
Overall score 5 out of 10. If any parts fail at any point, my score would drop to a 2 (only because of the machine work bling).
Needless to say I am not that impressed by his products. The only reason we got his EGR delete was because XDP and numerous other suppliers were on back order, and I was in a bit of a time crunch. His price on the kit was more than everyone else also.
