Egr delete kit leaking bad..need help

Ok after reviews lots of topics and such on here I decided to go with a eBay delete kit with solid j-tube.

Upon install the j-pipe was to long so we cut about an inch off, so we could fit hose on and attach to oil cooler. Also the o-ring didn't fit, would not fit into the intake no matter what. We finally bought different o-ring and installed. It's now leaking bad!

I spoke to the company I bought it from and the owner said he's never heard of such and issue but would send me a new j-pipe.

My question is should I just bite the bullet and buy the ipr stage 2 delete, and avoid the j-pipe all together? Anyone had issues similar or issues out of j-pipes?

Please any suggestions/ opinions are needed.

i wouldve just bit the bullet the first time to get the IPR.... I would try the new j pipe and see if that works since hes giving it to you for free. If that doesnt work then get the IPR.

I installed an IPR gen2 EGR delete on a members truck a week or so ago. It's a nice piece and installed nicely But that cheap Vince doesn't include the o-ring on the part that goes into the intake. I had to reuse the one off the egr cooler. Then he doesn't include the lower bolts and nuts for the up- pipe. Come on Vince. Your profit margin that slim you can't squeeze in an o-ring and a couple bolts.

That's what I was thinking, try new one and see. The j pipe was to long and had to be trimmed also. I'm frustrated with all this.

The truck is also getting horrible mpg 5 mpg in town. I don't know what's wrong. It's not throwing any codes.

I'm confused and don't what to do next.

you have bigger problems on your hands if its only getting 5 mpgs unless its a 450 dually loaded lol. check your ficm voltage and see what its doing, check fuel pressure, change the fuel fitlers as well if you havent already done so. injectors could be causing this issue as well and normally wont throw a code unless they are just flat out gone!

FICM is good. I'll look at the injectors.

Maybe bad at math? Lol

So I recently installed a IPR and was impressed with it.

I also recently installed two china made eBay craps and ya tubes were both to long and customer asked me not to shorten. Lol have installed just about all name brand in the market. And I would stick around with the name brand stuff including the IPR people trash talk.
