ll THE ll $50 ll OR ll LESS ll EGR ll DELETE ll

Hopefully this can help some people save some money and gain a little confidence/learn something about their truck.

This is what you can do on an OEM configuration, buy a 1/2" NPT tap, 1/2" NPT pipe plug, 5/8" steel "T", 1' of 5/8" coolant hose and an EGR up pipe block off plate. Then tap the front cover, plug it, then return the coolant from the oil cooler to the "T" into the heater core return. Then all you have to do is take the 1/4" cooling hose from the intake out and "T" it into the 1/4" radiator return line and cap the other nipple on the degas bottle with the open end. Less than $50 and your in business.

For a BPD configuration you can remove the brass coolant fitting and simply install a 1/2" NPT pipe plug instead of routing the coolant to the heater core return. You could also run IPR's high flow coolant filter in lieu of blocking (BPD) or rerouting the coolant (OEM/BPD).

Also you could cut the scoop out of the EGR up pipe (only certain MY's are applicable -scoop-) and weld a patch over the hole in lieu of placing a v-band plug over the EGR outlet.






You can kind of see the foot in this pic. I'll try to get a better shot tomorrow.

Did it on mine and a few customer trucks with zero issues reported back. I have an EGR up pipe delete in mine though so that's not included in the $50. Should one choose to go that route several vendors have just that pipe available for around $75 shipped.

I believe I have a few of the valley. My intake manifold is different from yours so my front cover is plugged by a foot welded to the bottom of it. Serves the same purpose on mine as the plug would on others. I have used the plug in other trucks though and it does work. Let me see what I can dig up.

Newbie question...would this cause any issues on a stock truck w/o a tuner?

Am I correct in saying that this leaves the cooler in place to keep the intake sealed?

Also, what are you thoughts on the up pipe delete tube you run? I've read there is a concern about the absence of the flex pipe found in the stock unit causing the Y-pipe to crack. I've also read that it's a bad idea to use a stock up pipe (w/o scoop) if it's not supported by the EGR cooler.


I want to get rid of the EGR cooler, too (with the BPD oil cooler install) but to leave the useless appendage in there goes against all of my OCD tendencies.

Also just for another option, you can use a 3/4" freeze plug in the front cover...that way there's no metal shavings from tapping it to worry about in your cooling system. The 3/4" freeze plug drives in really easy, good press fit. That's how I just did mine for a ported intake with the egr totally deleted. That would save even more money, freeze plugs are less than a dollar and don't need a tap.

Yeah the freeze plug would be better. I've heard of some guys doing the freeze plug with zero issues.
