Gathering parts, do I need these?...

I'm getting a shop to delete my ERG in an '04 Powerstroke. What are updated dummy plugs, and how many do I need please? Also, when he does this I am getting an OEM oil cooler also and what are updated stand pipes and how many of them would I also need?
Thanks

If they told you they were going to do a EGR delete and oil cooler and are going to do dummy plugs and standpipes they are going to charge you more labor to do those as they have to pull the valve covers to get to them. Just an FYI.

Thanks for the explination Tusc. I assumed that as long as he was doing the delete and cooler, these parts would be there for the easy change also. I didn't realize they were under the valve covers. Thanks, now I know what not to order.

I mean if your going for piece of mind than yes get them and have them installed. Just make sure your truck is in fact a late 04 with the wavy style HPO rails.

An 04 could be a grey area on dummy plugs it may have them may not.

If it has straight high pressure oil rails it dosnt take dummy plugs. If it has wavy rails it takes dummy plugs.

Both styles have stand pipes but they're different depending on the rails.

I know my truck is a late '04 and these couple of parts aren't expensive. Is it worth the extra labour to install them, (IE, is the piece of mind worth the price of the parts do you think?).

Either way you look at it the labor is going to be the same as they will have to pull the valve covers to change them. The valve covers do not have to be pulled for the oil cooler or egr cooler/delete and the intake manifold and oil cooler don't have to be pulled to do the standpipes and dummy plugs.
