Which EGR delete kit should I get? and Who should install?

Ever since I got my 6.0 back in August I have been searching for a good EGR delete kit to buy but there are so many choices I don't know which brand to go with. Also I was wondering if I should do my oil cooler as well. The mechanic at my Ford dealership said the oil cooler would be fine as long as I used good coolant and flushed it every service. Anyway the brand of EGR delete kit I was considering would be Performance Machine but I know there are a lot others out there.

Another thing is I need someone to install for me. I was quoted $2500 for a full delete kit with oil cooler by my former mechanic and from what Ive read on these fourms that is a rip off. Im in the Louisville, KY area and there arent very many diesel mechanics I know of. Is there anyone out there in my area who can delete my EGR at a reasonable price. Southern Indiana, Lexington, Frankfort areas are ok also.

What is the difference between your coolant temp and your oil temp? THIS number, NOT the mechanic at the local dealership tells you if the oil cooler needs to be changed. Someone of average/moderate wrenching skills (and tools) can do this in their driveway over a weekend, I did. When I did mine, I used an eBay delete that had an up pipe and the delete itself was one piece.

What ebay delete is one piece? I only know of one kit that is one piece and it's the IPR gen2 kit, which is what I installed on my truck. If you can change an alternator, then you can probably install this kit. It's very straight forward and it should take a novice the better part of a day to install.

Is $2500 with them providing all the parts? Seems a bit high (even with parts) but I'm not sure what the going rate is, maybe it's a good deal and I just undervalue that kind of work.

There's a guy locally here that advertises on all the local forums and classifieds as a 6.0 specialist. I gave him a call and he seemed to know his stuff, said here was a member here as well but not very active on the forums. Said he only did stud installs with oem gaskets and only if the heads checked out ok or are machined/replaced at the same time. The price? $700 for labor only to install studs and new gaskets.

The plate that goes under the intake and the tube were welded together, one piece. I don't remember whose it was, but it was about $150.

$700 to do studs or EGR delete. Not bad for a delete, stellar for head studs!
