there are zero cons. the pro is it prevents an egr cooler failure. No, you do not get more performance.

Thinking about a delete on mine. Read an article that it not only stops the flash boil that happens in the egr cooler, but adds lowend torque in normal driving due to spent fuel not being recycled (egr is closed at wot). Has anyone else heard or read this?

I've read that but you will not notice any added low end torgue. I just believe whatever marc tells me and he said there is zero performance increase.

Is it something you can do yourself or do you need to be a mechanic?

having some mechanic ability will definitely help....if you're removing all egr related parts.

Will the egr delete change the results of emissions test results? Will it pass/fail?

I would guess it would fail. I live in NC Diesels are exempt from emissions testing.
