It's not bad, I've read about guys doing that (reference my 99% and 1% EGR delete comment), the primary reason for doing it that way is for visual inspections. As I also stated, leaving the EGR valve in place (the one up front) is for proper turbo VGT cycling.

However, I do have to throw the BS flag because the OEM hose clamp is still there. Even if he pounded in freeze plugs and welded it up, a band clamp should be used because that OEM clamp is a POS. Tell you what, if that truck has hella bad acceleration from a stand still, then tears a$$ down the road, it's most likely bs. The EGR cooler really robs low end throttle response. Even with an SCT tuner, mine wouldn't kick rocks from a stand still until I deleted the EGR cooler.

The ONLY way to check the oil cooler is to monitor the coolant and oil temps at highway speeds, unloaded. If they are greater than 15* apart, guess what, it's time to change it. I was running 15~17 to work and back, after I changed the oil cooler I see about 4. Last weekend I towed a boat 80 miles and only saw a 9* split. It was 4~5 without the boat.

I think he did actually do it then, my truck gets off the line like a bat out of hell and i dont notice any change in acceleration throughout the rpm ranges, so i think he was being legit, i really appreciate all of your help

The oem "clamp" on the blue hose isn't really a clamp.....you turn the blue hose to line up the marks and pull. Like a old 1157 light bulb, that being said they can be reused or you can even buy a new blue hose. The guy that welded up the egr cooler could have easily went back with a stock blue hose.

Hmm, I didn't know those were reusable. Then again, I was so hot when I found mine leaking from that blue hose that I just wanted it off of my truck.
