Alpha dog tuning egr delete

Wondering if anyone is running this brand my buddy just put one on his truck. Wondering if the quality is any good. If so for $100 bucks I'll buy one.

Sorry, never heard of it. Most would say to stick with the big names in tuning. Things could get ugly quickly if you run a tune from someone that doesn't really know what and/or why they are changing parameters. You don't want to be somebody's learning curve...

sorry I'm too late...

I'm gonna throw in my two cents as a person who just had one installed a month ago. Get your money back! It is pure crap! First of all, the exhaust flange snapped in half before I got 150 feet from my techs place. Next, I started to get a puddle of coolant in my driveway, but only when the engine gets cold. Turns out, the coolant tube they supply is a straight tube that is chrome plated. It looks pretty, but the rubber hose has nothing to grip. It is a slick surface with no flange like a normal hose attachment. Maybe they have changed the design, as I bought mine 6 months ago. If not, don't bother. Tech even put two clamps on the hose and it is still leaking. Now I have to contact alpha dog tuning through eBay as they don't have a phone number. Good luck. Learn from my mistake, buy quality parts.

update...

Quick update. Alpha dog was quick to respond and sent out a new coolant tube for free. Bad news is that it is almost the same, and still has no ridge for the coolant hose to grip onto. The pipe is now not chrome plated though and appears to be rough aluminum so maybe the hose will seal better. I will see after it gets installed next week.
